Hello readers,

Punk has taken a bag seat in trends since the resurgence of the nineties but I am to see it make a resurrection this Spring with accessories once again getting the stud, rivet and nailhead treatments! Darker colors are also in this Spring which is a nice edgier change..I love when punk is in trend because I get to add better quality and cheaper pieces to my wardrobe without having to scour the net..I decided to choose Grommets on bags because this detail is usually reserved for protecting added holes to garments; so it gives a light weight but cool detail when used as decoration.. Below are our faves under $50!

Hello Readers,

Next in our look-a-like series Red edition; I chose the beautiful and chic Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps! These beauties are sky high, patent leather and will add a sleek pop of color to any outfit you can think of to pu together! The price tag for these lovelies is a not too bad ( as Louboutins can go for way more)$675. The similar styles we found surprisingly had similar shapes and heel length..Let us know in the comments if you think we chose wisely and what other designer look-a-likes you would like featured next month!

Flat strappy sandals remind me of the shoes I used to wear as a little girl! They are so comfortable you will forget you are wearing shoes! 2012 sees them updated in pops of bright color.
