The Look for Less: Eric Michael Elena Espadrille Sandal


Eric Michael's "Elena" espadrille sandals are available in black, steel or gold for $99.50 at Youlookfab featured these chic shoes as a stylish yet comfortable shoe option for summer that will give you a little height, without the pain!


These Chaps "Dawna" espadrilles are a great look for less, on sale for just $23.99 at I bought these in red and they are really comfortable! Wore them for over 8 hours during a recent trip to NYC. The elastic straps keep your feet securely in place while the low wedge is just high enough to give you some height without making them tough to walk in. Certainly not the sexiest wedge in my closet but I think they look cute in a preppy sort of way paired with shorts or cargos and a simple tank or tee.

I just bought these yesterday! I looove them, SO comfortable and go with so so many outfits. Definitely worth the 23.99.

Those are great! I bought a pair of similar shoes two summers ago and still find myself wearing them more than any of my other casual summer sandals.
BB--I've been a huge fan forever, you've inspired me to start my own fashion blog: check it out!

Hah! Great minds think alike! Look at what I posted yesterday and its in our store too:

A fab substitute, BB! The Eric Michaels espadrille is stunning though. And very comfortable sandal even for my fussy feet.

I was at TJ Maxx on Sunday and they had a vary similar pair on sale for $20. Don't remember the brand name though. I really liked them but didn't get them and now, after seeing this post, I'm really kicking myself.

There are also Chinese Laundry look-a-likes for this shoe on sale at DSW for $29.95. It only comes in blue, brown and pink, but it comes with a cork wedge for those who might not like the weaved look.
