As much as I love gold on shoes, I have to acknowledge that it can be hard to get right. If it’s too shiny, it can very easily start to look cheap, and without seeing them in person, it’s hard to know whether or not that’s the case with these Forever 21 sandals. Of course, these shoes ARE cheap: they’re only $25.80, so it would be unfair of us to expect too much of them, and I love the shape of them. That rise embellishment on the toe is particularly pretty, and these look like the perfect shoes to wear with a party dress. If you’re not convinced by the gold, they’re also available in black, which is a little more restrained. What do you think?
