It was lust at first sight when I saw these Marni platform sandals walking down the runway. I love how the chunky platform and patent straps give off an artsy, architectural aura. I can already see myself wearing these with dark tights now and with a floral skirt in the Spring. Alas, marvelous Marni comes at a hefty price tag, so I'm searching for a cheaper version!
To see the look for less,
This BCBGirls Edmund Sandal ($110) is just as nice. I do a lot of city walking so the (slightly) lower heel is a lifesaver. The black heel is also a chic alternative to Marni's wedge heel. Done and done.
