Strappy Sandals for Summer
With my first burn comes the blissful stinging realization that summer is here and my Clinique SPF 15 will not cut it any longer. I am of course NOT complaining partly because the sun is out and the trees are in bloom but mostly because the summer fashions are in stores and looking smoking hot! If you though lookng into the sun is dangerous, these metallic pumps I have picked out for you are hotter than hot their hot Hot HOT! If these shoes were a person they would be a mix of Paul Walker and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
When shoes call your name in a store you answer to them with credit card in hand. These shoes are calling your name… hear it? It’s like …”wear me you gorgeous b*tch!” and when shoes start the pillow talk you need to take some meds… OR, you just need to go shopping. So abide by the metallic strappy sandal trend and get goin!
First up in the strappy metallic heels category are the stunning Snakeskin Gucci’s. Oh yeah kids, I’m bringing out the big guns first. for $1365.00 they are a bit steep but for an exotic skin it’s hugely worth it!
Since I’m on the topic of snakeskin sandals these Yves Saint Laurent are a gorgeous strappy sandal that also beg to be worn. When you are out with your party girls and you are up on a bar dancing like you own the place (hopefully with your top on) people are going to be looking at your shoes (… if your top actually is on) and guess what they are going to say? “I hate her free spiritedness a little less than the urge I have to steal her heels.” So just carry your mace with you and maybe if it’s in a metallic container it will look like the perfect clutch. You know until it becomes a weapon. Why turn to violence? Because these bad girls are $1795.00 so definitely in the worth protecting sphere.
Next up is a spin off from the traditional metallic heels you may have seen but then again, when does McQueen ever do anything like anyone else? These crystal heels are astonishingly beautiful and will blind anyone in a two block radius. The drag queen effect is quickly diminished by the lack of a lucite heel as well as the creamy peach color that makes up the hand dyed leather. These amazing shoes go for $1940.00 but are worth every shiny nickel.
An just for good measure I threw in this Jimmy Choo. Not only is it the very definition of strappy sandal but it also has a mixture of metallics and black which I find great for mixing with different outfits and lets face it, when you pay $895.00 you would like to wear them with everything. So here you go, a designer sandal that is gorgeous and practical.
Okay so I had one more pair to throw in just because they are completely awesome in every way. You guessed it! McQueen’s! They are pink, have a cut-out in the wedge heel and the black and pink straps are beyond incredible. I imagine they are a breeze to walk in and I would recommend that it be mandatory for flight attendants to wear them starting immediately however they are $6195.00 so basically as much as the airline. Okay now tell me… which ones are your favorite?
