There’s something about a bedazzled high heel that always gets my attention. Which is probably the desired reaction with sparkling, crystal-adorned footwear. A beautiful paramount example would have to be this beautiful crystal-encrusted ankle strap sandal by Casadei. Imagine how amazing these sparklers would look with your favorite little black dress! Total eye-catchers! Most certainly quite pricey, too.
