Ok, we’re not really going to steal anything… But we are going to do a bit of creative imitation of some of the cutest sandals in high fashion right now – the Capretto sandals by Miu Miu, which are currently in stores.
Look at how they shine! Neon, metallic, cutouts, buckles… It’s like a veritable rainbow of trendy delight.
Perhaps it’s my 24/7 ogling of various fashion blogs, magazines, and periodicals, but sometimes I notice trends growing on me like new moles or freckles. One day I look, and op – it’s just there, on me. Sure, maybe at first it might bewilder me a bit (freaking highlighter yellow? Are you kidding me?) but after a few days, weeks, months… I start to like the little fella. I give him a name, and maybe draw a little house for him (him being the trend – are you following along?) and he becomes part of my family.
Basically, I wouldn’t kick those neon flats out of bed for eating crackers. Dig?
Unfortunately, Miu Miu doesn’t exactly fit my meager budget, nor will it ever. It doesn’t cost a cent to get inspired, though! That’s why I’ve reached out my shopping fingers and tickled up some new sandals for summer, inspired by Miu Miu’s Capretta sandals. Hey – if you have $700 laying around, by all means – snag a pair! Until then, you can pick up one of these:
I’m a huge fan of silver shoes, and while I’m still warming up to gold, I can get behind the idea of it being paired with something else, like black (but not white, we’re not on a cruise ship here). (Unless you actually are on a cruise ship in which case I’m impressed with your wifi!)
They all look terribly comfortable. I’m a fan of the lower left sandals for their simplicity and the upper left sandals because they’re so unique!
This is a forum I have yet to venture into, personally… I can see the appeal of the neon pop, but I’ve never tried it, myself. Well, unless you count the 80s, wherein i was amidst a great wave of WTF fashion statement. Besides, I was only 5.
Obviously, I have no idea what to call the type of sandals that climb up your ankles via buckles.
I’m a little scared of what these will do to my leg proportions, but… Those purple Topshop sandals… they call to me.
