The Look for Less: Dolce Vita 'Garren' Sandals

Dolce Vita's "Garren" wedge sandals with cut-out heel are $189 at and come in seven delectable colors.

If you've been to Target lately, you've probably spotted these bright blue platforms in the shoe aisle. While they lack the comfy wedge, I figured they're similar enough to make them a good look for less. The "Petene" comes in cobalt or turquoise for $29.99. Click either image to view and/or purchase.
