Sandals are definitely the "it-shoe" when it comes to summer; no doubt about that but it is the type, color or style of sandals that usually gets the attention of fashionistas everywhere. This year, the pom-pom, fringe and strap sandals are holding strong along with the floral sandal and the sneakers. Does anyone remember how the "Valentino studs" were all over the place last summer? Well, it seems to have disappeared totally from the fashion scene. This is the reason I try to shop for good quality trendy pieces/items at lower prices with more affordable designers rather than paying so much for a trend that would disappear in a minute. What are your thoughts?
