Champagne Dreams, Box Wine Budget (2)

Hey kiddos! It's time for our weekly Champagne Dream Items mixed with Box Wine Budget Realities.

Spring is here, sort of, so I am thinking of fun flat sandals to pair with jeans and simple tee shirt dresses. Tribal influence is on trend and headed our way for both Spring 08 and Fall 09.

Below my picks for high and low end flat tribal sandals.


This mid-priced DVF beaded flats fall in the bottle of wine for the table category, neither high enough for champagne, but not low enough to be box wine at home. . .either way I love them.
Diane Van Furstenburg, Diana Thong, $210
These low priced, trend right tribal flats by Sam Edelman are fantastic. I wear a lot of black, cream, and beige these would be great with my wardrobe.
Sam Edelman, Gisela Thong, $93

Beaded, tribal, cute. Perfect and priced just right for ANYONE'S budget.
Sam Edelman, Gerry Thong, $99

I don't think I have ever worn Report shoes, but these would be the perfect way to start. I like the multi colors in the beads, that way they can be worn with ANYTHING.
Report, Redding Thong, $68

Ahhhhh. . .yum. The perfect ethnic inspired flat sandal, by the designer of my dreams. High price point, but you can wear these long after the tribal trend expires.
Giuseppe Zanotti, Ethinic Flat, $650

Sometimes true flats make me feel short so the slight wedge gives these Jimmy Choo's a leg up on the competition.
Jimmy Choo, Wedge Sandal, $895

Yet another designer I haven't worn called Dolce Vita, the price is low and the studs make it almost more rocker then tribal. . .either way they are cute.
DV by Dolce Vita, Oliver Thong, $62

Let's end on a high note. Zanotti beaded flat thongs. AH-MAY-ZING. . .
