Mail Bombs: Beyonce's Chanel Shoes + Fashionable Workout Ideas

Hey!
It's a wintry Friday in New York, but on the Fashion Bomb it's...
...time for Mail Bombs!
First, Tina from Atlanta, Georgia says, "PLEASE HELP ME FIND BEYONCE'S SHOES"
"...I AM IN DIRE NEED OF THEM"
She sounds serious, huh?

Well, it seems as if Beyonce's wearing these one-of-a-kind Chanel earth grippers...
...from its Resort 2007 collection. Visit chanel.com for store locations.
Next longtime reader TK says, "For once Rihanna really really impressed me.. "
"....I love the shape of this dress! Where can I find a budget friendly version?"
Try these low cost look a likes:
Left to Right: Velvet Metallic Jersey Strapless Dress, $123, www.revolveclothing.com; Graham and Spencer Metallic Keyhole Dress, $129, shopbop.com
Fashionista Melody says, "Hello! I just loooove this off-the-shoulder little black dress Vanessa Williams is rocking..."
" ...Can you find where I can get this dress or something close to it? Thank-you!"
Of course! Get a sexy Vanessa essence with the following:
Try these: Top Row: Juicy Couture Off Shoulder Dress, $205, www.asos.com; Fine Jersey T Dress, $26, www.americanapparel.net.
Bottom Row: Vivienne Westwood Aglomania Dolman Sleeve Dress, $229, www.djpremium.com.
Next Reader Tanya loved Rihanna's Trench coat...
She says, "I love this coat...could you help me find out where I can buy something similar?"
London intern Natalie stepped in with the scoop. She says, "Rihanna's coveted trench is by YSL which guarantees a hefty price tag, but luckily trench coats aren't hard to come by! Here, a few that still look great but won't burn a hole in your purse:"
Left to Right: London Fog Pleated Trench with Roll-Sleeves, $190, www.macys.com; Riverbay Trench Coat, $178, www.whitehouseblackmarket.com.
Left to Right: Premise Phina City Trench Coat, $610, www.bloomingdales.com; Jessica Simpson Double-Breasted Trench Coat, $160.00, www.macys.com.
Reminds me of my old dear trench coat! Seems I'll have to start looking for its replacement:(
I've gotten lots of questions on how to get a Herve Leger creation...
...without spending $1,000.
Of Meagan Good's dress, Tabatha says, "I would like to know where can I find a dress similar to this one. I believe this is Herve Leger and I can't afford it right now but I would love something similar."
Since Herve Leger is owned by BCBG, I've started to see a few BCBG 'looks close to me' dresses:
Left to Right: BCBG Centurion Dress, $300, www.saks.com; BCBG Satin Tiered Dress, $200, www.macys.com; BCBG Max Azria Laser Cut Dress, $288, www.nordstrom.com.
They're still a bit steep, so if you want a cheaper, saucier substitute, you can go with this $89 dress from Bebe...

Those will have to do until Forever 21 and H&M start manufacturing lesser priced versions.
Malwina writes in with a wardrobe query. She says, "Hi! So I'm really sensitive about my look and I have to look good anywhere, in any situation. I'm looking forward to step my activity game up. How can I look good, kind of sexy ;) on P.E. lessons or during fitness? You know, like Juicy Couture makes some fashionable tracksuits. Maybe you could help me find a fashionable set for sports?"
Girl, I can relate. Gotta look fly at all times! Go for the following jackets, and throw in their matching bottoms for a cute workout steeze:
Lastly, a question for everyone!
Susan from Tucson, AZ, "Do you think high-waisted skinny jeans and pumps will work for Spring? If they are not too Fall 07, what kind of top do you think would look cute with them? Here in Tucson it is too hot for long sleeves!"
I think the style is still chic, and would work with anything from a batwing top to a wife beater. What do you guys think?
Smootches!
