I am a shoe-aholic. Admittedly, I overindulge in shoes because they.are.awesome. Some of my favorite looks from my wardrobe usually involve simple colors and silhouettes in my clothing (there is enough black, white, and cream in my closet to style a years worth of ensembles!) and a standout stiletto. I.Love.Shoes. The end.
One of my favorite footwear designers is Giuseppe Zanotti. His shoes are pretty, whimsical, modern, cool, and shockingly comfortable. It’s impossible to pick a fave glam pair in my closet, but this one is definitely top 3. You can purchase them here.
I’ve been oogling the latest Spring/Summer 2013 collection and drooling over this sky-high, midnight blue pair of platforms! The shade of suede will take you from winter to spring, and still feel fresh as the weather warms up. And trust me, they are SO comfortable!! You can pair them with a cocktail dress, or jeans, a t-shirt and a soft leather jacket. I like styling them like this.
Despite the fact that I LOVE Giuseppe Zanotti heels, they aren’t exactly budget-friendly. At $750, this pair of gorge foot candy can set you back a whole paycheck! So I did us all a favor, scoured the web, and found a shockingly similar pair that won’t break the bank!
This pair from Sam Edelman is absolutely fabulous. They are a rich, deep shade of blue, and feature the same stacked platform as the Giuseppe Zanotti pair.
The difference? They are $650 cheaper. Yes. That’s the same as some people’s monthly rent! Totally worth the savings, and you still get an amazing pair of show-stopping heels.
Happy shoe-shopping (and shoe-saving!) womanistas!
