Women's Irina Halo Strap Sandal
Seriously...GET THESE SHOES!
I first tried these on in a store just for fun because they seemed so over-the-top with the glitter and lace. What I didn't expect was that they would be AWESOME! The fit is amazing and the style just different enough to elevate them into the realm of need-to-have. Once they are on, the lace/glitter somehow works, and they do not look gaudy or overdone. These may not be everyday office wear, but I will not shy away from wearing these with jeans and a nice top. That said, I will keep the rest simple because they will be the "star" of my outfit. And seriously...at this price it's really a no-brainer.

2 in 1 d'Orsay Pumps!
These took me by surprise when I found out the ankle straps can be removed! So you can wear them without the straps for miles-long legs or with the straps for a very sexy look! The construction is very sturdy and the glitter is glued on very firmly. The quality is definitely department store worthy. I love the d'Orsay design as well, the extra exposure on the sides look very sexy and high-end!
In terms of size, I usually wear a 7 Regular in Montego Bay Club sandals and a 6.5W in Fioni high heels for a very snug fit. I bought these in 7 and they are a little too big for me, so I put a couple sponge wedges in the toebox to make them fit perfectly. The width of the size 7 is the same as the Fioni 6.5W.
I also bought similar CS high heels and found these to be more comfortable despite the same heel height. I can distribute more of my weight to the heels and less to the balls of the foot, consequently, they feel more comfortable. Also, I have narrow heels and pumps tend to slip off, but the ankle straps keep my feet securely in these.
