Ahhh--diabolical J Crew: there's a reason why you do not show models wearing these sandals. The first strap crosses only the first four digits of one's foot. Bad, bad design!! The silver sandal below isn;t much better. Going back!
There’s a minor two-part gap in my summer footwear.
Last year I bought this pair of Chie Mihara sandals (in a softer gray than this image, immediately below), and I love them—with shorts. Try them with a dress, and the effect is almost Birkenstock-y, which is not my aesthetic.
So I’m looking for a particularly thin pair of strappy flats that will complement floaty summer dresses. That’s the first gap.
Above, at the top of the page, is a contender, from J Crew.
And the second gap is a pair of silver sandals that aren’t too pretty or too clunky. I don’t want garden-party sweetness or Frankenfoot clompers.
Well, then, J Crew just happens to have these on sale.
Perhaps . . .
