Jenni Kayne’s coveted d’Orsay flats are the bomb but the price tag…um…not so much. Fortunately, Chinese Laundry now makes an imposter that looks just like the real thing for only (drum roll) $59.00. I’ll take these two…err…three, thank you!
Say what? Hampden Clothing and it’s newly launched accesories shop James are giving away one pair of shoes $350 or under–your choice! Just tweet, pin, post or blog the picture above, more details here. My eyes are set on the Loeffler Tamsin Pump, it’s a toss up between the green and pink snakeskin or the lizard…!
With Memorial Day lurking around the corner, an homage to summer whites (the LWD in particular) is definitely in order.
There are so many fabulous white dresses right now. The By Malene Birger shift dress on the left below is one of my faves (also available in an amazing chartreuse/yellow color).
Club Monaco’s Spring Collection is also really great (seriously, check it out–especially the white/technicolor print combo below).
Zara also has some really affordable and simple options–perfect for accessorizing.
I put ridiculous mileage on my sandals every summer and they pretty much end up destroyed as a result–so a new pair or two to start the season is definitely in order. Here are a few on my radar, including some pretty thrifty finds.
I’m obsessed with these peep toe flats. Just adorable. Schutz Angelica Sandal, $130.
These wear everywhere flats are a steal–I mean $45? Done. GC Shoes Arena Sandal, $45.
I tried these babies on in store and they’re super comfortable–plus, the mid-heel wedge adds needed height without sacrificing comfort! If between sizes, I would size down as they seemed to run a tad large. Sam Edelman Serena, $140.00 (last seen on sale for $99.50).
Gladiators with a little gilt, can’t go wrong… Dolce Vita Cyprus Gladiator $127 (on sale).
These are just plain fun… Sol Sana Holly Sandal, $85.
At such a sweet price, these silver darlings are hard to pass up. Zara Silver Thong Sandals, $35.90.
A perfect neutral option in bone. DV by Dolce Vita Denny Sandals, $69.
You can’t go wrong with a simple gold gladiator, these fit the bill. Vince Camuto Ebi Sandal $65.50 (on sale).
Another great neutral by DV (bought these in nude last year and wore them to the ground–they’re great!). DV by Dolce Vita Archer Sandal, $69.00 (now $47.99).
Simple, sophisticated and fun. Love these metallic ankle strap wedges from J.Crew. Lillian Low Wedge, $198.00.
Loeffler Randall always delivers. These silver and woven strap sandals are one of my favorites. Loeffler Randall Dree Sandal, $175.00.
Have you seen the new Ancient Greek Sandals? They’re all really great and super high quality–worth the splurge. Ancient Greek Clio Sandal, $185.00.
With an ethnic print, neon hues, and a peplum, Anthropologie’s Daksha Stiched Top by Manish Aurora had me at hello. And, as styled via Atlantic-Pacific below, it looks equally fabulous with a full skirt as it does with skinny denim or trousers. Lady-like perfection!

I’ve been seriously obsessed with Valentino’s rock stud collection for quite a while (check them out in the T-strap version on Olivia Palermo here and here). Fortunately, as with most good things, knock offs have followed–and they’re pretty close comparables too!
