Shopping for... studded ankle boots (on the cheap!)

I'm building quite the collection of ankle boots since last year's Chelsea boots craze, but I've not picked up a studded pair yet, and I'm starting to feel the need!  Topshop, Office and Zara seem to really be leading the way when it comes to lustworthy boots, but I'm not so keen on the £70 price tags, so I thought I'd take a sneaky peak on ebay at some inspired versions.  



Studs and buckles £27.99 | Studs and tassels £26.99 | Gold zips and studs £22.89 |

| All over studs £24.99  | Studded biker boots £29.99 | Small studs £22.99 |

I really love the idea of the buckled boots with scattered studs in the top left, but I'm not sure I could pull them off.  The second and third pairs along the top are calling my name though - I think I could wear the ones with the gold studs along the back to work, so I'll probably get those.  

The bottom left pair are possibly a bit of a stud overload, but I do like them.  The biker boots are painfully cool, but it's the more subtle studs on the heeled boots on the right that are really winning me over.  

I'm sure I can justify buying two pairs of studded ankle boots if one is high-heeled and the other is flat.  Common sense fashion maths :) 

Do you have any of these styles?  Have you gone for the inspired versions or do you prefer to splash out on the read deal?

Keep up to date with all things flutter and sparkle in any of the following ways -

  2. Ahh, go for the top left! They are gorgeous and look a lot like the ones Zara are doing. I am itching to get myself some studded boots too, they've been on my wishlist for weeks, so thanks for the heads up on some cheaper options!
