For Dean and Dan these prim n’ proper show-stompers were the perfect finishing touches for their “samurai x Victorian x combat Fall 2016 collection“. They feature layers upon layers of fine floral lace, tassel fringe trim, black silk, high embellished backing, lace printed insole and double ankle strap. Plus, burrowed in the nest of lace there’s a triple pearl drop charm. Half sizes are available.
Rene Caovilla embellished sandals | 115mm/4.3″ heel | shop at Neiman Marcus
Anyone else’s jaw just drop? Rene’s son Edoardo has carried over the rich heritage of the family brand continuing to create truly beautiful shoes marrying Italian craftsmanship with couture. If you think of Caovilla shoes you immediately think of elegant crystal statement pieces! They continue to create the ultimate princess designs which have proved a perfect match for red carpet regulars including Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Garner.
This standout style features a gladiator-inspired cage design in black suede with silver Swarovski crystal covered side panels, corset lace-up front and long wrap-around suede laces. Half sizes are available.
In addition to the blooming flowers, welcoming sunshine and green grass, strappy open-toe sandals are another sign that spring has sprung. Before you know it, it will be time to pack the boots away, treat yourself to a pedi (we suggest trying Dior’s new lilac polish) and slip into some strappy sandals – strappier the better.

My heart swoons for these new lace-up sandals from the signature Rockstud collection by Valentino. This spring designers debut an extreme gladiator trend seen more extravagantly done by Gianvito Rossi and continued by with the beloved Amazon sandal. I so love this nude sandal featuring corset-style lace-up front, gold-tone pyramid studs, long wrap-around laces and back-zip. You can also find them in a beautiful pale gold at MyTheresa and black at Montaigne Market. Half sizes are available and it’s designed in a flat variation at Net-A-Porter.
