Even though Lola still would not approve, I am in love with a certain pair of gladiator sandals from Bottega Veneta.
Maybe it's because, having spent most of the last month surrounded by snow, I'm desperate for spring and shoes that don't entirely encase my feet. Or maybe it's because these particular gladiators are delicately beautiful and very feminine, in contrast to some of the thick-strapped designs that were so popular last year. Either way, I'd be happy to wear these around town, to the beach, or on a boat (although that may be because I have an enormous crush on Andy Samberg).
Buy through Barney's New York for $490.00.
