Redemption!

In spite of recent setbacks, I'm going to say that Stella McCartney has redeemed herself a bit with this lovely platform sandal. Not only is it very very pretty and worth showing, but I will give her a little love in celebration of her new website launch (plus, I love her perfume).



Yes, she's incorporating wood into this design as well, but the effect here is much lighter, girlier and summery. I would wear these in an instant.



I also like how the mix of materials all work so well together. The blond wood, slight lug sole, and mesh heel - they all are casual and combine to make the diamante-encrusted strap look even more sparkly and delicate.




You can get a close up view to see all the details at the site. Can't you imagine these shining in the sun with every step?




They are pricey ($1200), like the others in this collection, but I love them. Luckily they start at 36 and not in my size! I would be seriously tempted by them.

Very pretty. I'm just not psyched to pay big bucks for something that doesn't use leather!

I'm with ya! I think the $1000+ prices are getting crazy, especially her pieces.
