Real vs. Steal – Yves Saint Laurent Tribute T-Strap Platform Sandals

by Juliana on June 3, 2012

I’d love to see these fabulous sandals by Yves Saint Laurent paired with a beautiful summer suit with sleek modern lines and impeccable tailoring. The platforms provide that extra little bit of balance, transforming any feminine silhouette into one with more presence and structure. The other great thing is how easy they can go from casual to dressier occasions. And considering the price, that’s a very important requisite. But if you’re in the market for a similar yet budget-friendly look, we’ve also got just the thing.

Not only are these Gianni Bini sandals very affordable (only $59.99) but if you’re like me, and your neutral staple is black, you’ll be able to get so much mileage out of these as you take them from this season to the next! You could wear them on the weekend under your bootcut jeans or just as easily with some leggings. Choose accessories that echo the beautiful lines of this pair, and of course you can’t go wrong by adding a little metal hardware into the mix.
