Fall/Winter Shoe Wishlist

I noticed that I already started stocking up on fall/winter shoes/boots even though it's still sandal weather over here. I just want to try to get all of the shoes why they last. Some are so popular that they instantly sold out (like the Chloé Sevigny for Opening Ceremony buckle wedge boots).
The Chloé Susan studded booties are not produced anymore and hard to find on ebay these days so I've pretty much given up hope of ever finding them in my size. Office UK made decent knock offs for a fraction of the price so I think I'll just settle for those.
I wanted the famous Sam Edelman Zoe booties for along time. I could still kick myself for not ordering them when they were still available on the Victoria Secret site. Well, at least SE has brought them back and I don't have to pay the horrendous ebay mark ups. Nasty Gal has them available for pre-order.
Jeffrey Campbell has made so many great knock offs of designer shoes like the Ann Demeulemeester lace ups. I'm positive that there is more to come.

  1. I totally agree - Jeffrey Campbell makes very good designer-inspired shoes, but it is such a pain that they're mainly available in the US. Some online retailers do ship internationally, but most of them charge a really high shipping cost. That still does not exclude the potential customs charge/tax. What a bummer. I wish they would open their business in the UK.

  2. Oh are you thinking of ordering those Chloe-inspired Zoe Boots by Sam Edelman? I know so many people say they're 100% overpriced and the quality is on the crappy side - I'm still hugely attracted to the design (since I cannot afford the real deal by Chloe). Those SE boots used to offer half sizes in their first release, but in this recent re-release, they seem to only offer whole sizes, which is a bit annoying.

  3. Thanks for stopping by!
    I'll be in New York in about two weeks and I was actually thinking about trying to get my hands on those SE booties. I really like the design but I also heard that they are overpriced for what they are and hard to walk in. We'll see.
    I bought a pair of Jeffrey Campbell boots similar to the the Christian Louboutin ones with gold studs all over them in NY last year. The originals were so expensive and the Campbells are great. Very comfy and a very reasonable price. That's probably why I like his shoes. I also wish they were available in Europe.

  4. those office ones were great but sold out soo sooo fast!!

    ps enjoy NY
