So despite the fact that gladiator sandals are as omnipresent as the Jonas Brothers, they still hold the unmatched power to give any thrifted sundress that “I care, but I DON’T care” je ne sais quois. At the same time? I’m TOTALLY over them. What is the next incarnation? GLADIATOR BOOTIES. Are they a boot or a sandal? We may never know, but I am officially obsessed.
Oh so expensive! What to do??? Surprisingly, Lacadia at Cuffs managed to find a vintage pair that’s almost there (50% fashion-forward / 50% podiatrist-prescribed), which of course sold out instantaneously:
Well, at least I know they once existed. I am on a mission now. If our Painfully Hip Roadtrip doesn’t turn up a pair, then I will be forced to give up and start saving.
