Current Obsession: Simply Vera by Vera Wang Metallic Platform Sandals

I was 10, and I think somehow wearing those shoes brought me one step closer to becoming the sixth member of the Spice Girls. So this summer when chunky, borderline-ugly platforms became cute again, I was on board. I still really want to join the Spice Girls, okay? 

The best way I've found to delve into the shoe trend has been through a pair of metallic silver sandals that I'm quite positive my pre-teen self would have also adored. These Simply Vera by Vera Wang metallic sling backs ($60 $30) are my go-to shoe for summer. The metallic finish is my way of faking being fancy, while the platform gives the appearance that I'm a heels girl when we all know I'm not.

But my absolute favorite part about these sandals isn't how comfortable they are or how when I wear them I get at least three compliments (one time from a trendy fashion girl and a 70-year-old, classic New Yorker in the same day), it's that I can wear them with anything. In fact, I've yet to find an outfit they didn't pair well with. From my tattered boyfriend jeans to my classic LBD, these platforms might not ensure I'm the next member of the Spice Girls (or that they're reuniting, for that matter), but they do ensure I'm always comfortable and stylish.
