If you’re familiar with Stella McCartney’s Fall 2012 collection, then you know it’s making quite a hit with the celebrities. From Charlize Theron, to Emma Stone, to Anne Hathaway, to Alicia Keys, to Kristen Stewart, Stella Mcartney’s sporty rubber platform kicks are indeed making rounds in Hollywood.
Select pieces from McCartney’s Fall 2012 line are now available online. Just to name a few of the stores that carry them – Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, SAKS, and LuisaViaRoma. Depending on the style (whether pumps, booties, or wedges), the price of the shoes can run up to $1000:
Stella McCartney Faux Leather Rubber Platform Ankle Boot, $1055
Now if you’re a fashionista loving the clean minimalistic lines, the sporty streak, and the classic appeal of black and white treatment but simply cannot afford to shell out that much money for a pair, not to worry. You can still get the “look” for a lot less. Check out the Michael Antonio “Laporte” t-strap in black and white velvet:
Michael Antonio Laporte in Black and White Velvet, $56.99 – $79.99 at Amazon
Definitely not a bad alternative, right?
It’s not a knock off, nor does it have a rubber platform, but the look is there and that’s all that counts. Of course, the best thing about these Laporte pumps is the fact that a pair will only cost you $80! That sounds way better than spending hundreds or thousands, don’t you think?
