The Christian Louboutin Rollerboy Spikes were quite popular in leather, so it was only a matter of time before a denim version ($1,195) was added to the collection. More suitable for casual outings, these loafers feature the Christian Louboutin signature studded spikes embedded throughout the navy denim fabric; this is a perfect complement to the tan wooden sole.

Although Bess NYC is known for incorporating gold toned studs into their clothing, it appears they’ve taken this concept to the next level with their Perfecto Gold Studded Leather Biker Jacket ($2,050). This black leather jacket has a vintage design with shoulder epaulets, and gold metal studs on the collar and shoulder sleeves. While there’s no doubt that this jacket is an attention grabber, do you think Bess went overboard with the studs or did they hit it right on the mark?
