StyleBistro STUFF: Zara's Vaguely-Familiar-But-Not-Really Bejeweled Sandals


Sandals with rhinestones — especially metallic sandals with rhinestones — can quickly veer into Palm Beach retirement community territory, but this pair, from Zara, manages to be cool despite its in-your-faceness.
Maybe it's because the shoes look vaguely Marni-ish, without actually copying a Marni design. Or, it could be that the jewels are just oversized enough, coupled with the fact that they sit atop a vaguely orthopedic, Birkenstock-y base, which is sort of fashionable again, thanks to Celine and Phillip Lim.

Anyway, they look comfortable and they're sparkly. Win-win, right?
