Why is it that so many people imagine themselves to be Cleopatra reincarnated? I’m thinking it’s because of the stylish clothes, hip make-up and the unmatched beauty and brains, of course. So for all you modern day, wanna be Roman-Egyptian empresses, these lovely gold sandals by Jimmy Choo clearly capture the mood of 50 B.C. perfectly! And for $895, they’ll give your wallet something to “chew” on. Well… more like taking a huge bite out of your wallet – ouch!
