I've been in love with the Diane von Furstenberg Zia heel, but not the $280 price tag.
AND an almost exact dupe of the Michael Kors Dillon Raffia Sandal.
on sale for $157
So when I accidentally came across this dupe at DSW I freaked! They're the MRKT Trey Sandal in Taupe (not pictured, the ones below are Nude) and they were marked down to $80 which was still too much for my liking. HOWEVER, I came across a pair of these marked down by 30% while browsing in the Clearance section! $50 sounded more reasonable to me so I scooped these right up! Plus I got $5 off b/c next week is my birthday!
$UPDATE 6/16/11: I received a comment below about what kinds of options to wear with the MRKT Trey sandal. My answer...JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING! They're sooo versatile & super comfortable! Based on my own personal style/pref, I prob wouldn't pair these with:
80 got it for $50!
- a Maxi dress/skirt (too bulky for me)
- a Delicate summer dress (unless you are gonna add some proportion on top with a blazer/jacket)
- Flared jeans (too bulky/hippie looking for me)
With a skirt
Top: Ann Taylor $12 on sale
Skirt: New York & co. $5 clearance
Belt: New York & co. $12 clearance
With Cropped Pants
Top: Threads for Thought via Hautelook.com
Cropped pants: Joe's Jeans via TJ Maxx $60
(Yea..I don't have the back straps of the shoes on in this pic haha, sorry!)
With a Dress & Blazer(I'm not wearing the shoes in this pic, but this is an OOTD I would pair them up with)
Dress: Urban Outfitters
These would also look cute with skinny jeans and of course shorts. More OOTD's with these shoes coming soon! :)
