Every season, one top designer creates a fabulous "it" shoe that leaves fashionistas everywhere coveting a pair and wishing money grew from trees. It's not necessarily the prettiest or most budget-conscious shoe, but it’s definitely the one that boldly declares, “Look at me, I’m fierce." Then there are those all-too-rare moments when we ladies get lucky and find an "it" shoe knock-off for less than 25% of the original price!
Check out BEBE’S version of the Louis Vuitton Spring '09 shoe collection created by Marc Jacobs—the Katrin Leather Exotic Sandal for $149.00 (bebe.com). These trendy, African-inspired sandals are destined to be the focal point of any outfit. Would you dare to wear them?
