These shoes were made for flaunting!

After doing my daily round on some of my favorite sites, I couldn't resist posting on Bloomingdale's knockout shoe sale! My selections below are only a few of dozens of shoes in this sale that I'd love to own; I've picked these just to wet your appetite. In this sale, you'll find this summer's hottest shoes that you've been eyeing and seen everywhere but haven't splurged on, for example, Tory Burch's sky-high espadrille platform heel with ankle strap or Ash's military-inspired wedge that's adorned with canvas and enough hardware for an army! Unfortunately, sizes are limited, so don't delay your visit! For each shoe below, I've composed a very brief rundown highlighting my reasons for selecting each shoe and why it's a great wardrobe piece!
Joan & David, blush woven leather heeled sandal $124
It has a tassel!!! Really, nothing more needs to be said about this shoe, but since it's so fab, I can't neglect the woven leather, asymmetry, perfect proportion, or angle of the heel (see alternate picture on the site). The color of this shoe is magnificent and would easily transition to fall. This shoe is also versatile as far as what you can wear with it (jeans, skirt, dress, suit) or where you can wear it (office, lunch, date, night out). It should be durable, considering the wooden platform, and the only part you'd want to be careful with is the covered heel. Did I mention the triangle formed by where the straps meet? I could go on and on about this shoe!
Steve Madden, fabric espadrille platforms $45.50
This is adorable! I could easily see this shoe as an easy weekend go-to, perfect for skinny jeans or a denim pencil skirt. Of course, you could style this shoe many ways, I just feel like it was born to be worn with denim or a little linen skirt. This is one of those shoes I think you'd live in and would have an extremely low cost-per-wear, especially with a price of about $45.00.

Pour La Victoire, raspberry oxford lace-up pump $137
I love this raspberry shade, and it is all the rage this coming fall. Killer heel, open-toe, lace-up detail, piping, texture, platform...you name it, this shoe's got it! Although this might not be an everyday shoe (covered platform, covered heel--might take a bit of a beating), it is truly perfection for a night out-lunch-dinner shoe and very versatile due to its design and color. The best part of this shoe? It's one hell of a power heel! Here's to feeling like a million bucks for $137!
