Delicate Sandals

I've always written about what I call the "delicate" sandals in the past year. These last few years, we saw a loooot of chunky shoes and platforms emerging as the "it" and "staple" shoe of any shoenista (a shoe fashionista, har, har) and while I have nothing against all the platform rage, I do still want to revert to the nice dainty, strappy stiletto sandals once in a while. I call these the "delicate" sandals ( I know some bloggers have other names, like minimal sandals but I prefer to call them delicate).

Here are a few gorgeous pairs that I would love to own, but due to budget constraints, they will have to remain in my virtual closet (a.k.a this blog).

These Giuseppe Zanottis are beyond awesome. Ankle straps that are tripled? Why not? Shiny black material and super high stiletto? Love! And guess what? They are on sale. Buy them HERE

These Topshop beauties are so perfect in every way : nude and orange combination. Studded detail in the heel. Oh and the fact that they don't have a platform! Find them HERE.

I absolutely love the crisscross detail in these Giuseppe Zanottis. (yes, another Zanotti in the same blog post). Love the little holes and the nude color! These will look really great on any pair of legs! Find them HERE

So what do you guys think of the delicate sandals? Are you a fierce platform lover, or are you looking to take a break from al the chunk and stocking up on these kinds of sandals?

Hope you all have a shoe filled day!

  21. I am on the same page with on this one. I have nothing against chunky shoes either, I have a couple, but I love and prefer my "delicate" sandals. Any of these pairs will make a great addition to any shoe closet.


  22. While chunky heels can provide better support and therefore, comfort, these "dainty" strappy heels still look way sexier to me! The only problem is my expiration is usually hours earlier if I have to wear this out. Haha!

Sexy Stiletto Saturdays : Oscar Tiye

The two circles found at the back of this shoe really reminds me of Mickey Mouse. Don't you guys think so? It's pretty cute actually! Other than that, this pair is actually a really very sexy pair of stilettos. It has a gorgeous black satin texture, dainty straps and a beautiful high stiletto heel. What do you guys think?

Olgana Paris Dahlia Suede Ankle Wrap Sandal

I've mentioned several times here just how much I am loving the low block heel. I've featured the style several times and even my own shoe line Sala Chaussures have made several versions of it. I am very much partial to the more feminine and dainty versions and I love that other designers are coming out with so many pretty styles like these ones from Olgana Paris. I love the gorgeous blush color plus the flower embellishment adds just the right element of femininity and the dangling leaves on the ankle straps finishes up the whole shoe perfectly. What do you guys think of this Pair?

Sergio Rossi Velvet Beaded Heel D'orsay Pump

Opulent and decadent are two words I would use to describe this pair from Sergio Rossi. It features gorgeous deep purple velvet uppers with the back part and block heel covered almost entirely in beads. Even with all those factors, I still think this pair is extremely wearable, I would totally wear these with jeans and a white shirt!! It  is such a gorgeous pair! What do you guys think?
