Exotic shoes and accessories will be all the rage for the warmer months but wearing this trend can get pretty expensive. Case in point, these beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo Polaris sandals (available here) are super hot! The sexy high heel and gladiator style will pair nicely with a mini dress or leather shorts but at $1690 they will put a pretty big dent in your pocket. The BCBGeneration Manci sandal (available here) clocks in at just $110 and is just as sexy, if not more so. What do you think? Splurge or steal??
Leather in the summer just never really made sense to me. For obvious reasons, of course. It’s a hot, heavy material that keeps you warm in the winter and otherwise will cause you to sweat. I remember when I was in high school in the early 90’s and summer leather was making a comeback with a vengeance. You remember Cross Colours and the jeans with the leather accent down the front? What about the long leather shorts guys used to wear and the leather short rompers the girls used to rock? I distinctly remember going to our local amusement park in July and observing the cool teenage boys wearing the leather shorts and wiping their foreheads with handkerchiefs. Silly, right? Well, don’t laugh too hard because after viewing the new spin on leather with the laser cuts, you just might be caught in some summer leather yourself. Designers from Ferragamo to Jeffrey Campbell all have their take on this sexy trend. What do you think?
