Like we said, plain old metallics aren’t enough for 2012.
They have to be mirrored, high shine, liquid metallic, like on this ‘Parissa’ platform sandal from Jessica Simpson that we found at Amazon:
Jessica Simpson Parissa platform sandals in graphite liquid metal
Jessica Simpson Parissa platform sandals in bronze liquid metal
You’re probably wishing that we introduced you to these sandals before the holidays and well, we are too. These would’ve been the perfect New Year’s Eve shoes, wouldn’t they? A little too late for that but it’s never too late for these to be your next shoes!
There’s always room in our shoe closets for another style variation of the gladiator sandal. Aside from the liquid metallic color, we’re also loving the varied straps, the thick platform and the proportion-balancing 5 1/2″ column heel on the ‘Parissa’. These would be THE sandals to bring out for those girls’ night outs, evening dates and parties. If you’re looking for something that can also be worn in the daytime, these black and nude colors of the ‘Parissa’ would be the perfect in-between:
Jessica Simpson Parissa platform sandals in black patent
Jessica Simpson Parissa platform sandals in nude patent
The black and nude are still in patent leather of course because these babies need to shine!
