Comparison: Color Block Heels

It may only be February, but I’m ready for warm weather. Since I have no power over the forecast, I will instead take this time to plan all the pretty things I want to wear once it heats back up.

Nothing says palm trees and Mai Tais quite like these color block sandals from BCBG:

Runway Hex Color-Blocked Sandal from BCBG Maxazria

These sandals are bold and have a futuristic edge about them, which I love. Plus, look at that heel! I love a metallic heel and don’t even get me started on that cutout! Sadly, they’re $325, which is just a bit out of my price range.
Okay, it’s a lot out of my price range.

Since when has that stopped me?

Below, I have compiled a few options for us girls on a budget:

Samaria Ivory Sandals from Jessica Simpson

$88 (was $98)

These are definitely more retro/disco and not so futuristic, but they have the light base color with bright accent colors, which is what you want in a great warm weather shoe. If a metallic heel is not your thing, then this faux-wood heel is a perfect match. Not only that, but it has a T-strap, which I think can be so sexy AND comfortable!

3-Strap Sueded Heel Bootie from Charlotte Russe

$20 (was $38.50) 
These are selling fast!

This is a two-tone sueded bootie with a peep toe, side zipper, and a few metallic stud accents. When you want a little more coverage but still want some color in your life, these babies are for you.

 

V357997

Mary Jane Platform Pump from Victoria’s Secret

$98 (Additional discounts given for online orders)

These sexy Mary Jane’s have a super high heel and beautiful vibrant colors, as well as an ankle strap and peep toe. The price is a bit on the high side, but Victoria’s Secret always has deals on online orders to bring that number down.

 

V360738

Peep-toe Sling-back Sandal from Victoria’s Secret

$68 (Additional discounts given for online orders)

These sling-backs combine vintage and modern into on great shoe. If the neon yellow scares you a bit, not to worry! They have plenty of other color combinations to choose from.

Eclectic Company Heel from ModCloth

$67.99

This is definitely a quirky shoe, but I love it all the same. ModCloth has some of the greatest and most unusual shoes that almost always have a vintage flair. This has a great criss-cross strap, and the heel detail is fabulous.

Aquarium Fantasy Wedge from ModCloth

$47.99

This last pair is my absolute FAVORITE. It’s to die for. First off, they couldn’t have chosen a better name for this beautifully designed wedge. These shoes are living in a dream world, and I’m on the next flight. These would look so great with super skinny jeans or a cute mini skirt. I know I say that I need to buy shoes a lot, but I really REALLY need this pair. It completely steals the show in this line-up.
