Boots & Booties under $100

Since fall is upon us, even in LA, it's time to put away those summer sandals and buy some boots.  Here are some fall worthy boots that won't break your bank:

Very Volatile Groupie Boot for $65 @ Piperlime

I'm hearting the stud detail on the back. Definitely in line with my previous star studded post!

Michael Antonio at ShopStyle
Michael Atonio 'Marvela' Bootie for $59.99 @ Endless

How funky are those cutout grommets? Also, they are an exact look for less of these L.A.M.B booties!

Laundry by Shelli Segal at ShopStyle
Dirty Laundry Quilted Rain Boots for $59 @ Macy's

Wellies!! I live in LA and have no use for wellies but I've always wanted a pair. These come in grey, black, and purple. Maybe we will have a rainy winter?!

Type Z at ShopStyle
Type Z 'Lanell' Booties for $89 from Zappos

The slouchy wide cuff is very boho and the snap adds some fun flair. Perfect for fall!

Quote of the Day

"Some people dream of having a big swimming pool. With me, it's closets." -Audrey Hepburn

For me... it's SHOE CLOSETS!

I'm currently moving and re-building my shoe closet. YAY for getting organized! Check back later this week for pics of the new & improved closet + ideas on how to make your very own shoe closet on a limited budget (I heart IKEA).

Happy Tuesday Everyone!


How cute are these Report Signature Booties?:

Report at ShopStyle
Report Signature 'Britt' Booties on sale for $100 from $125 @ Endless

The ruched silhouette and widecuffed collar is perfect for skinny jeans or a great way to add a little funk to a casual dress! I heart the bow tie side too!

L.A.M.B 'Rae' Finally on Sale!

Of course the shoe I've been obsessing over for the past 2 months has FINALLY gone on sale, right when I'm preparing to move and take a vaca to NYC (aka spending lots of $$). Great timing Gwen Stefani! Decisions Decisions... I think this is a great time for a poll. What would you do? (Vote on the sidebar)

L.A.M.B. at ShopStyle
L.A.M.B 'Rae' on sale for $260 from $329 @ Zappos Couture (Only in Grey)

L.A.M.B. at ShopStyle
L.A.M.B 'Rae' on sale for $260 from $325 @ Endless (In Grey & Red)

They are also available at Nordstrom for full price, but Nordi's promises to price match any lower price so you can definitely get them for $260 there too!

They are just sooo amazing and I need them! Let me know what you would do!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Star Studded Shoes

Studded shoes are so funky and perfect for fall! Most of us can't afford the $995 price tag on the Louboutin Pigalle Studded Pumps so here are some looks for less & the Pigalle's if you are interested:

Christian Louboutin at ShopStyle
Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle 100 Studded' Pumps for $995 @ Net-A-Porter

He does it again and again! Look at the those studs? They just look so sexy with that red sole {sigh}!

Dolce Vita at ShopStyle
Dolce Vita 'Trinity Stud' Pumps for $210 @ Saks

A great alternative, but for some reason I'm hearting the stud spacing on the Louboutin's a lot more.

Boutique 9 at ShopStyle
Boutique 9 'Darcy' Studded Pumps for $160 @ Bloomingdales

I posted the nude version earlier this week. These are my favorite of all the look for less studded pumps because they are funky but not so outrageous. I think you could get good use out of them!

Boutique 9 at ShopStyle
Boutque 9 'Dorothy' Studded Flats for $120 @ Bloomingdales

They have them in flats too!

I'm hearting the hardware shoe trend... get them while they're hot! (Click on the Pic to go right to the store) Hope everyone has a star studded weekend.

In Pursuit of even more shoes with great hardware,

Footwear Styling Pieces by Dekkori

You might be asking: Footwear styling pieces, what are those? They are pieces that are destined to change or rather enhance shoe fashion! One of my good friends at RevolveClothing.com sent me a link to the Dekkori line and here is a little taste:

Dekkori Innocence Bow for $58 @ Revolve Clothing

Of course these are my absolute FAVORITE because I heart bows. I would actually turn these around & have the bow on the back circa the Eva Longoria Hollywould shoe from 2008.

Mystique at ShopStyle
Dekkori Mystique Cross Cross for $64

Loving the new strappy sandal look, but not too sure if you want to invest in a new pair of shoes? Add these guys and TA DAH- magic!

Intrigue Ankle T-Strap for $118 @ Revolve Clothing

I have a feeling we are going to see more styling pieces in the next coming months because they are a great way to achieve a totally different look! Take your basic black pump and add some "umph"!

There is also shoe jewelry! Check out LitterSF
for more info. What do you like better: styling pieces or shoe jewelry? Let me know!

In Pursuit of some more fun shoe accessories,


21st Century Ruby Slippers

Remember Dorothy's Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz? Some of the biggest names in shoes have re-created their versions of Dorothy's Ruby Slippers. They are currently being auctioned off for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Check out the designs and more on CocoPerez.

Dolce Vita's @ Britney Spears

The Dolce Vita Gladatior sandals I ordered from Martin + Osa last week arrived just in time for the Britney Spears concert last night! Here are a couple shots:

The Circus was incredible and Britney was amazing as always. These shoes are pretty comfortable and the leather is very soft! They are still available at Martin + Osa AND you can get an extra $25% when you spend $100+ using this promotion code at check out: 33034548! That would make them only $75! Click on the pic below to go directly to Martin + Osa:

60% OFF! They are bowalicious and soo shiny + how amazing is the price?

Brand Spotlight: J.Crew

I've been a J. Crew shoe lover for many years (my shoe closet will vouch for me). They have perfect work pumps that are unique and very comfy + their flats are preetttyy! Here are my current favs:

J.Crew at ShopStyle
Bailey Feather Patent Peep Toes for $325

The feathers... LOVE the feathers! You all know how much I love toe embellishments- bueno!

J.Crew at ShopStyle
Bailey Feather Patent Flats for $328

These would look great with skinny ankle length jeans!

J.Crew at ShopStyle
Harper Crackle-Metallic Heel for $328

Metallic is hot this fall and these are great day-to-night shoes!

I know the price tag might be higher than expected, but I assure you the quality is impeccable + they ALWAYS go on sale! Don't worry because I will be the first to let you know.

Jimmy Choo for H&M

Jimmy Choo's H&M line hits stores on Nov. 14th and here is a preview of some of the looks:

I think the rocker gladiator sandal is great, but I'm not sure how I feel about the Michael Jackson-esque oxfords or the bejeweled zebra flats. Tacky?

The red sandal looks extremely high-end (great for an H&M line) and the blue pump reminds me of this "regular" priced Jimmy Choo Shoe:

Jimmy Choo at ShopStyle

Jimmy Choo 'Keenan' Sandal for $1,195 @ Nordstrom

Of course the leather is probably incomparable, but you can only do so much when you are making "affordable" shoes!

Let me know what you think of the line so far! Are you going to be camping out at your nearest H&M to make sure you get your very own pair?

In Pursuit of some lovely shoes,
