Impress for Less: Get Givenchy’s Shark Lock Foldover Wedge Boots like Kim Kardashian, Brandy, Taraji P. Henson ,and LaLa Anthony

Friday, September 27, 2013 · 2 Comments


I’ve been drooling over these Givenchy boots for the last year.  Kim Kardashian , LaLa Anthony , and Brandy are just some of the many people spotted rocking the stylish boots. The boots look great with dresses, skirts, and apparently  shorts. I mean, who doesn’t love a versatile shoe?  While the boots are gorgeous and I would love to put them in heavy rotation this fall, I just can’t seem to swing the $1,900 for the boots. I’m not quite in that tax bracket, YET!   So as I was browsing for super cute and inexpensive boots  for the season, I stumbled on a pair of boots that were almost identical to the Givenchy wedge boots.

Thank you sweet Jesus for these Enzo Angiolini Damus Wedge Boots.  The boots are similar without looking like an imitation shoe,  if you catch my drift.

I was drooling over Kelly Rowland’s black halter dress she wore to Prive nightclub in Atlanta last week.  The accordion style dress was gorgeous and her Giuseppe Zanotti  black and gold plated sandals were to die for.  Too bad these beauties are out of my budget at $1, 1695. Lucky for me I can still get me sexy on and save a few bucks with  Mia  Limited Edition “Lenny” Sandals.
