Carrie Bradshaw once said "I have this substance abuse problem...expensive footwear". Well Carrie, fret no more, we have you covered. See that was in the early 2000s before a little shop in Temple Bar called Siopaella opened up. A little shop (now three) that caters to the addicts of expensive shoes, bags etc but at a much lower price point! Queue...our next instalment of steal or splurge all about expensive footwear or rather footwear at a more affordable price and at a budget that suits you (you're welcome Carrie, oh and by the way, we ship worldwide...she was a real life character...right!?!).

I have two vices in my life, ankle boots and coats! I can't stop wearing ankle boots even in the summer, however I do like to keep them brighter than my trusted black ankle boots that I wear in winter. These Carvela boots are PERFECT (except not my size) and are a steal at just €69! Get them before I start stretching out my feet while I sleep!!!!

Clogs are having a real moment right now and I'll be honest, it took me a while to be fully converted. But by seeing the likes of Alexa Chung, Kate Moss and Sarah Jessica Parker rocking the clogs, I have become a convert. Curse my silly sponge like brain that struggles to fight against conformity!

Last week I was a bag (Fendi Mini 2 Jours if you're wondering) and this week I'm a pair of black ankle boots. These Acne Pistol boots are perfection and really are boots for life! I am obsessed and these would be mine if they weren't too small!!

I find these laser cut Aennis Eunis "Miracle" knee high boots so flattering. No matter if you have legs that go on forever (heya Kendall) or short little stumpy legs (heya Ciara) these will make your pins sparkle and with the adjustable laces, they will fit all calves like a glove! These are brand new and originally retail for over €900 and we have them at a snip for €399.
