Giuseppe Zanotti Sandal (DSW)
I just had to squeeze in this double-take post about sandals before the official end of summer. This simple yet stunning pair by Giuseppe Zanotti is absolutely perfect; the elastic panels make them easy to get on and off, and the style goes with just about everything. They’re also incredibly comfortable because the leather straps are soft and conform to your foot. They originally retailed for $550 and are still available in gold and silver on DSW, but grab them quick because the price just dropped to $150!
BCBG Paris Richmand (DSW)
Although the sale price for the Giuseppe Zanotti sandals is certainly more reasonable the the original retail price, why pay that much when you can get this incredible double-take from BCBG Paris for less than half the cost? I actually spotted these in black in the clearance racks of a DSW store and thought they were the real deal. I was really surprised when I found out they were by BCBG Paris! Unfortunately for me, the black pair was a half-size too big, which was quite obvious because there was a big gap between my toes and the end of the sandal. I honestly prefer the black over the gold, so I’ll just have to keep looking!
Note: DSW does not pay me to write about shoes.
