Saturday 'Treat Yo Self' post - featuring FANCY LADIES Black Peep Toe Stiletto Red Bottom High Heels (Lady Peep lookalikes)
I know they are a little bit familiar aren't they? Remind you of any style in particular I wonder? It's Saturday, just after payday, and in the words of Parks & Recreation, sometimes, you just have to have a day when you 'Treat Yo Self'.
Unlike their designer doppelgangers however, these heels will cost you, amazingly, just £32.88 plus shipping (various methods available) so they won't breakk the bank either and are also real leather. Pretty impressive.

Whether you are the bride, the mother of the bride, a bridesmaid or even just a guest at an upcoming nuptials, I'd urge you to consider these amazing little slings from Giuseppe Zanotti. Their pearlescent blush pink upper and classical styling make these a pair of heels that you might very well just want to wear forever. They are amazingly flattering and look every bit the quality you would expect. Plus they are on sale at £252 making them considerably more affordable than their original £360 price tag.
These saucy little slings are from Kurt Geiger and I must admit to being taken in by their charms. From their retro vamp and pointed toe to their delicately flared heels, they ooze sophistication and glamour. Definitely a proper grown up working girls shoe. I also really like the choice of colours and finishes too. The nude is probably my favourite of the three although the deep orange is particularly striking. I'd happily own them all and colour clash the orange heels with a deep pink dress.
Whichever you prefer I think these are a real investment piece, they will work equally well with trousers or skirts too, making them an affordable and very wearable part of your working wardrobe.
How would you like to wear these on your big day? Unashamedly OTT and in your face, if you want Louboutins for your wedding day - and you want everyone to notice them - then Drapadita are possibly your dream bridal shoe.
I do rather like them, although there is something about them that makes me wish they were a ankle form fitting shoe boot, possibly in draped suede or shimmer. But they are lovely. Would you wear them to say 'I do'?
My new bridal gown love is this one from Temperley London. Marguerite can be yours for £2257. What do you think? I love how understated it is, yet such a beautiful and flattering cut.

Iridescent crystals illuminate the sky-high silhouette of a scintillating platform pump. My pick of the three for the thick cuff ankle strap that's just oh-so-sexy and the simplicity of the overall design. Who doesn't love a sparkly platform sandal?
You’re ready for bright lights and the big city in Deeny-r! This tonal shimmering rhinestones pump gets you past the velvet rope with ease and places you front-and-center on even the most crowded red carpet. I love the deep concealed platform on these and with a closed toe they are more practical than my top pick. The delicate ankle strap is adorable and they would have made my number one if only the strap was glittery too!
Put on your dancing shoes! Embellished t-strap sandal with adjustable ankle strap. Glistening rhinestone upper makes for the ultimate in chic. Style Alianaa with a printed mini and bold bangles. These heels remind me of champagne, and what better inspiration for an evening shoe to go out and party in? They would also make a fantastic bridal or bridesmaid shoe too, in case you want a bit of bling for your big day.

These shoes come in two versatile colours so whether you prefer a classic vampish black or a subtle sparkling neutral, Karen Millen have got you covered.
I'm unsure which I like best, but at a high street price I suppose you don't have to choose. I think I might get more wear out of the vampish black, as they'd look really sexy worn with a slashed to the thigh long gown - red carpet style.
Either way a really elegant and classic evening look that'll serve you well for years to come. Enjoy x

The familiar sight of a biker boot on Shoeniverse, I know, right? But these are Jimmy Choo after all, plus as classic biker boots go you'll find that pretty much every feature is exactly where it should be. They might not be cheap, but if you are after the ultimate in luxurious biker boots then with these pretties you won't be far off.
Black leather biker boot from JIMMY CHOO featuring a round toe, a rubber sole, and heel, a strap and buckle fastening at the ankle, a gold-tone designer embossed plaque at the rear, and a strap and buckle strap fastening at top. Buy JIMMY CHOO Black Biker Boot

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Silver Iriza Glitter D'orsay Pumps
I am unsure how any girl could ignore the charms of Iriza for an evening shoe. Classic lines, plus subtle glitter sparkles giving an almost pewter overall effect. With a half d'orsay silhouette, not even a hint of a platform and a delicate pointed toe these are both flattering and utterly timeless.
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Amor Patent-Suede Bootie Black
I adore Armor because it is a properly wearable Louboutin boot. The mix of patent, leather and suede finishes creates a military look and these would look amazing with any military jacket or shiny black leather jeans. Glossy and classy, fitting snugly to the ankle, they look set to be a celeb favourite boot for AW13 and a classic among the fash pack.
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Black Cachottiere Cutout Red Sole Bootie
On a significantly less practical level I also chose to feature the beautiful slash front shoe boots called Cachottiere, which in case you were wondering means 'secretive' (feminine) in French. Yes the heel is far too pin thin to walk more than a few metres. Yes the notion of a boot not only with a slashed open upper but also a wide open toe is a little bit ridiculous. But you know what? They are utterly charming, stupidly sexy, and while I love them all this is actually my pick of the three styles.
