Gladiator What?

Taking a cue from Erin's post on Friday...I decided to take a fashion risk myself. I bought a pair of strappy gladiator sandals! Now, normally I would not go for a look like this because I am all of 5'3 1/2 (that 1/2 is VERY important). Shoes that cut me off at the ankles usually are a guaranteed way to make me look even shorter and dumpier, like gladiator sandals. But, when I saw these cute Tahari sandals, and noticed that they wouldn't break the bank I figured I would give it a go :)

I wore them to work today with cropped pants, they don't look half bad...actually I like them alot and people keep looking at my feet (not sure if that is a good thing or not yet)





Thanks Erin for getting me to try something risky with my summer fashion!

I had the same struggle over a pair of gold glads I was coveting (I'd love to have the extra 1+ inch of height you have on me! ;)

I'm rather certain mine cut me off visually, but I still get a lot of compliments, and LOVE them! Glad you made the gutsy move - they are VERY cute!

I like them. I bought some flat, flat ones last year for a trip to Chicago (I'm also 5-3")I had shoe paranoia the whole week. This year every tells me they like them.
p.s. ya'll should share the office:)

Its funny you should mention your hesitation when it comes to wearing this type of sandal. Being only 5'2" I'm also always concerned about making my legs look shorter. I might have to try some sandals like yours:)
