The first time I saw Alexander McQueen’s Faithful Booties, inspired by the motorcycle jacket, I was in awe of such an ingenious creation. Retailed at $1,155, I saved a picture of the pair of beauties and stored it in the in-my-dreams folder.
One thing cool about fashion is that when something that ingenious comes along in a matter of months someone will come up with a close enough copy of it at a much more affordable price. Here I present Dolce Vita’s Lana Collar Thong Booties that is a pretty close representation of the original AMcQ. Priced at $298, it’s still out of my price range, but I can put it in the wait-for-sale folder.
Update: I also found the Laurie Zip Cutout Pump on the Bebe website for $189! Check it out!
