A certain blogger has been wearing some killer peep-toe booties in loads of her photos (with or without black opaque tights), and I have to tell you, I am in l♥♥♥♥ve with them, thanks to her. To my disbelief, in every photo she has them captioned as “bebe booties.” Bebe? BEBE?!
Could’ve fooled me. I thought for sure they were from Gucci:
But, no, for $841 less, you can have the Bebe version, which is practically a dead-ringer:
Ever since I spotted them on Kelly Framel, I’ve been dedicatedly checking Bebe’s site to find them. I all but gave up. Then just the other day, I pop on and they appear to be back in stock at bebe.com, in limited sizes since they’re selling like hotcakes. Of course, if you’re totally desperate, you could always call some stores to see if you can get them. Just sayin’.
