Summer sandals

sol sana drake embellished bejewelled sandals

Sol Sana ‘drake’ embellished sandals (also available in black)

My shoe collection has recently had a little update of sorts, with the addition of these Sol Sana jewel embellished sandals. I’m still on the fence when it comes to slides, so rather than grin and bear it, I had my local cobbler attach a thin leather strap around the ankle. Truth be told, I’ve had my eye on a pair of embellished sandals from Marni for the last couple of years, but spending around the $650 mark for a pair of sandals (which in Wellington would have seen little wear) never quite made sense, nor would it have been good for my bank balance!

Mine have suffered the loss of one of the larger gemstones, so these are sitting on the backbenches for the moment while I wait for the Sol Sana team to receive some replacement gems (they’re very obliging should anything go wrong with your shoes!). But once I do, it’s pretty safe to say that I’ll be dashing about in these all summer long; not to mention keeping my eye on the black – slightly less embellished – version. Because two is always better than one…
