Splurge vs Steal...







Like me, I am sure that you are lusting over the comeback of lace-up ankle boots...think J-Lo's "Jenny from the Block"...but, the hefty price tag for Alexander Wang Freja Open Toe Laced Zip Booties (sold out on shopbop.com) or Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain Lace-Up Studded Booties is CRAZINESS and clearly out of your price range!













Well, luckily for you, and I, there is a relatively easy way to step into this trend. Aldo Shoes has a great comparable bootie, CANELES, that is available in black, gray, or camel! With a simple color change of the shoelace, you will definitely be high stepping in this casually sexy and stylish shoe! I would definitely suggest picking up the black pair, on sale now for $90, and change the shoelace color to black! Paired with leggings, shorts, mini skirt, or cuffed jeans and you have a sure fire head turner of an outfit!




Happy shopping! This is definitely a trend I will be stepping out in this Spring and Summer. Ankle booties, especially open-toe, are pure genius!
