I get such a kick out of finding these designer looks-for-less (hardly think the designers share my enthusiasm but I can't help it!). A few days ago, we featured some inexpensive ways to channel Balmain's Fall 2008 collection. Now, we are proud to present what is quite possibly the best way to imitate the oh-so-fashionable look of the designer's black suede fringed boots with these Budget Babe-style boots from Bakers. The pair on the left will burn a hole in your pocket with its $1,025 pricetag. The shoes on the right, however, are simply smoking hot.
