I love Diane von Furstenberg breezy wrap dresses–flattering and bright, the very definition of feminine. So I really really wanted to love her shoes–I really tried–but instead I ended up, oh, I don’t know–a little underwhelmed? Some of the choices were really meh, like this “Comfy Chic” slide:
A simply metallic band attached to a chunky cork wedge–yawn!
I tried to get up my enthusiasm with these:
There’s nothing wrong with these Dolce thong sandals per se, but the $240 price tag puts a cramp in my style. I guess they’re pretty, but again, I guess I expect even more pizzazz from Mrs. Diane.
And speaking of thongs, she seems overly enamored with them. Now, I’ve never been a fan of high-heeled thong sandals. I’ve only recently (and barely) gotten used to wearing thong sandals at all; but having that bit of leather rubbing between your toes with the added pressure of the high heel? Why, that must be torture! So this is why I don’t understand why this is needed for a sandal that would otherwise work fine without the thong–the CEO stacked heel sandal:
It’s a pretty sandal (even prettier in red), but–why the extra thong? There it is again:
I actually love the simplicity and lines of these Milano cutout mini-wedges, but…don’t love the thong–simply because it’s not necessary.
Overall, while I’m not necessarily impressed with the collection, there are several attractive options that might float some other people’s boat. Me…I’m going to stick with her dresses for now, thank you very much!
