The Look for Less: Chanel Flower & Stud Clogs

Chanel is to blame (or thank, depending on where you stand) for the current clog trend in footwear. Shown above are some Chanel clogs from the Spring 2010 runway embellished with flowers.

N.Y.L.A.'s "Lewis" clog will give you the look for less in either bone and white (shown) or pink and black (too garish to post). These beauties can be yours for $89.95 at

Looking for another less expensive option? Check your nearest Payless for these Alice + Olivia Hampton studded platform clog heels ($39.99, sold out in most sizes online).

Not sure how to wear your new amazing clogs? Try them with a simple tee and your favorite jeans, like Ashley Simpson. Couldn't be easier!

The Look for Less: Diane Von Furstenberg Zia Sandal

Diane Von Furstenberg's Zia slingback platform sandals are on sale for $204.30 down from $284 at They have a great '70s throwback vibe but the simplicity of the style means these will become a classic in your closet.

N.Y.L.A.'s Poin Clog will give you a similar look for a little less, $79.95 at Despite the high vamp, I wouldn't worry too much about these shortening the appearance of your legs because of the way the straps crisscross in front. The tan color will also look great with tan, medium or darker skin tones and above-the-knee skirts.

The Look for Less: C&C California Smocked White Romper

C&C California's Smocked Romper in white costs $110. While this might make a great cover-up at the beach or pool, I doubt anyone will appreciate the fact you spent over $100 on a such a basic clothing item.

Save some cash instead and go with this romper by Elle for Kohl's, available in white or black for just $12.60. Much better!
