Get It For Less – Valentino 10mm Rockstud Calfskin Ballerina Flats

How can I forget about this runway hit – I’ve had my eyes on the Valentino Rockstud flats since their first debut. They’ve been everywhere since fashion week and all over street style blogs. Made from calfskin, these shoes features its signature Rockstud pyramid studs which gives it its edgy ladylike look. Fortunately for me, with every new trend, affordable versions ensues. We have our good friends over at Forever21 to count on for keeping up with trends every season. Their version of this hot item is pretty darn close and it also comes in black and nude. If you’re the kinda gal who keeps up with her fashion, but doesn’t want to break the bank, well feast your eyes on these baby!

Get It For Less – Tony Bianco Ariette Thigh High Laced-up Boots

So I’ve been seeing thigh high laced-up boots everywhere since the beginning of Spring. By far my favourite has to go to Tony Bianco’s Ariette – first seen featured in the Alex Perry runway show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. The best part about these boots is that they’re made to order – yes you heard right, ‘made to order’. Made from black suede, the boots are thigh high, full lace up stiletto featuring a full length back zip for easy entry. Please keep in mind as the site strongly recommends that customers consider the measurements provided against their own leg before purchasing as no refunds will be accepted. Priced at $419.95 you’re definitely expected to receive high quality, fitted to perfect your legs. These boots also comes in coyote




Well if this is not in your budget, I’ve come across these great budget friendly look-a-likes. Over at Bdonnas, they sure know what us ladies are looking for in the boot department. Similar to the Ariette, the Piarry comes in a suede material, thigh high and full lace up stiletto. The only draw back is that these are not made to order, but hey, for half the price at $210 you cannot go too wrong right.


Zanerobe Drop Crotch Sweat Pant

Ladies, your sweat pants has just gotten that much cooler. Drop crotch pants have been a trend for some time now. But i’m just going to go ahead and say it – they’re a classic piece. And what makes a piece classic? That piece that can pretty much be paired with just about anything. It’s that fricking good. Zanerobe clothes reeks of coolness and these pants are no exception. With a drawstring waist this sweat pant has a relaxed fit – “WARNING you may never want to take these off.” Made with 100% light weight cotton, it has been washed and intentionally distressed to appear vintage, in a washed grey colour. Priced at $89.95AUD, pick up your pair over at theyallhateus.
