I am head over heels in love with this strappy creation by Giuseppe Zanotti. Gold paired with black or white is one of my favorite color combinations. It just looks so refined and classic, even if the overall design is a bit elaborate. Zanotti has an excellent talent for adding just the right touch of class to his edgier designs, and the sandals above are no exception. The delicate straps balance out the busy structure, making the shoes less overwhelming and more wearable. And the dainty golden buckles and gold-tipped straps add a touch of ladylike grace. I’m not happy about the price tag though…does anyone want to get these for me on my birthday?
Greetings from the Dominican Republic! My boyfriend and I took a much-deserved vacation and jetted off to enjoy some warm weather. Although it’s definitely spring in Philadelphia, it’s nothing compared to the gorgeous 80 degree weather down in Puerto Plata. The sun has been shining during our entire trip and my feet are enjoying the sandal weather. The pair above was a birthday gift from my mom (she’s guilty of fueling my shoe addiction but I’m not complaining). They’re perfect for summer, super comfortable, and I love the laser-cut details!
It’s hard to forget Alexander Wang’s Spring 2013 collection; the deconstructed designs with sharp edges and graphic panels are truly breathtaking. And I’m sure everyone is familiar with the modernized white gladiator sandals that made their debut during that season.
Temperatures haven’t climbed up to a comfortable 70 degrees, so I haven’t taken my sandals out of storage yet. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking about warm weather footwear! There’s nothing better than a well-made, light and comfortable sandal that stays on your feet. They’re available in leopard and multi.
I’m a sucker for laced and strappy sandals, which is why the Zenaide by Givenchy caught my eye. I love the grommet detailing along the center strap, which is just enough to give them an edgy feel without being too overwhelming. The thin straps perfectly balance out the thicker sole and boot-like shape.
Laser technology allows for intricate detailing in the production of many goods, and I’m glad it’s being used more often for shoe design. Designers can craft styles with really unique shapes and patterns, turning shoes into works of art. The geometric detail in these Brian Atwood sandals makes them a great statement piece.
