Love at First Sight: D&G Patent Strappy Sandal

Oh my goodness, guys! I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love!!! Do you remember those strappy Michael Kors I blogged about awhile back? Well, I was browsing the Neiman Marcus web site the other day when I happened to notice these fabulous shoes in the Dolce & Gabbana Trunk Show photos:


As soon as I saw them, I scavenged the web only to be disappointed by nothing even close to the style of the ones in the trunk show photos. Why aren't there tons of strappy shoes on the web? Not thin-strappy, but chunky-strappy. Why?!


Dolce & Gabbana Patent Strappy Sandal

Finally, tonight, I found them! I simply must go try these on as soon as possible! I'm not saying that I'm going to run out and buy them, because they are quite expensive, but I do have some spending money I could put towards getting these. See, I allotted myself a small portion of my annual bonus to go shopping and I've been wondering for weeks what I should get. It makes me kind of nervous to think that I may spend that entire amount on a single pair of shoes that will most likely only be in for one season but just look at them! If you can't tell from my MK post (linked above), I've been searching for a pair of shoes in this style for what seems like forever! I think super strappy shoes are going to be really big for Spring '08.

What should I do, ladies!?

Well I do think you are right that strappy chunky shoes will be in in 2008. Do you remember the ones that SJP is wearing in the SEx and the city movie with the green dress? Good eye D!

I also think it's okay to spend a lot of money on a good pair of shoes because it's worth it - also you deserve it! Buy one nice pair of shoes rather a bunch of cheap ones! Besides - you will probably put these to good use this year - so what if they go out of style? They will come back at another time in life!

These are not trendy in the least so they will not go out of style. Besides that black patent is classic. Since higher priced shoes are made better than cheaper ones, I'd say its a good investment. I think you can wear these with anything even under a pant suit to work & on weekends with jeans and a funky top.

jeez, i just LOVE D&G, but i will probably NEVER be able to afford any of their pieces...

but i say if you've got the cash, go for it. lately, the trend machine has been moving a bit slowly, so if/when they do go out of fashion, rest assured it's not going to be for a few seasons at least. and i can think of soo much stuff you could wear those with!!

thanks everyone for your fun comments!

jessorz, i wouldn't necessarily say I have the cash...I mean, I did set aside some money, but there are sooooo many other things i want and/or should buy. i still haven't gotten my wedding dress!!! eek!
