Style: Summer Sandals

Ivanka Trump Kalia sandals                          Rene Caovilla sandals

On a recent California visit, I spent time with my quintessential California blonde friend Gretchen, and she was wearing the cutest sandals.  When I complimented her on them, she said they were by Ivanka Trump and mentioned how comfortable they are.  And though I don’t normally buy the exact same things my friends already own, Gretchen was completely okay with me having them.  Also, I figured that since we live 3000 miles apart, it’s unlikely we would wear them to the same event.  I immediately ordered a pair online.  Since they were last year’s style, they were a deal at less than $50.

While shopping on that trip, I found a very similar pair at Neiman Marcus that cost $1,265.  Yes, the price difference is more than $1,200!  I’m sure there are differences in quality, but...  

I guess my point is that great style can be found at all price points!
