The Look for Less: Dolce Vita "Olive" Sandal

The tear-drop detail and adjustable slingback strap on these Dolce Vita Olive Patent Leather T-Straps make this sandal a chic flip-flop alternative. Available in Coral, White Patent, Gold Patent, Pewter Patent, Lime Patent, they're now $49.99 at Lord & Taylor.


And since I'm all about options... Target is carrying a very similar style this season, the Merona Eleora Flat Sandals, which sell for $17.99 and come in 9 different colors: Green patent (shown here), pink, blue, gold, white, pewter, black, brown and tortoise.

Lulu's has a similar look for less, too: It's the Go Max Icon-01 Black Key Hole Thong Sandal, $22, available in black, ivory or silver.

Any takers?

this style is all over the place..i tried these at Steve Madden's store the other day

price was steep $59.95 and they looked too big on my feet :-(

Ooohhh ... Cupcakes and Cashmere featured the DV version on her page a day or two ago. I was wondering when someone would find a less expensive version. Thanks for the tip! As usual, I'm a sucker for the original, but I think I'll be checking the Target version out during my weekly trip tomorrow!
