Real vs. Steal – Zara Flat Jelly Sandals

by Irina on February 16, 2014

Update: This post has been updated on February 16, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Chances are you’ve already seen these rhinestoned two-tone t-strap flats by Zara somewhere. Maybe you saw them on a style blog (or many, as I have) or maybe you spotted them on someone else’s feet out in the streets last summer; you might even have contemplated getting them yourself while perusing the Zara store for the latest fashion finds. I’m not sure whether Zara designed these with some other designer shoe in mind (not that I know of) since they like to “borrow” from the latest runway styles. Anyway, these t-strap flats became quite the hot seller and sold out at full-price in no time.

Bamboo Lynna 01 Rhinestone Studded Strappy Flats

Et voilà! Bamboo brings us a perfectly finde substitute in faux suede leather for under $12! Is that amazing or what? Love the sandals, love the price! I think I even prefer the Bamboo flats over the Zara version since I really don’t like having gummy plastic material cover my feet (even though the Zara sandals also don’t look quite like a jelly flat to me). Anyway, better get them now before these sell out as well and so you’re ready to rock a pair of super cute summer shoes when warmer weather comes around.

There is something flirty yet grounded about wearing peep toe booties with a miniskirt. It somehow instantly makes anything short seem a little more sophisticated. And while you may have been told that ankle boots aren’t for everyone, they definitely can be if you wear them with opaque tights. Plus, the look is perfect for fall. Take this fabulous blue pair by Giuseppe Zanotti, they are such attention magnets and surprisingly a lot more versatile than you’d think. Wear them with blue skinny jeans and a sheer button down blouse for an artsy monochromatic look or with a little black dress and all your pearls for a spin on Audrey Hepburn’s iconic style. Either way, this pair can’t help but steal the show. And it gets better… we found a nearly identical version that costs way less and isn’t sold out.
