Wanted: Strappy Sandals

Strappy sandals have been on my mind for some time now and I think I finally figured out what makes them so attractive... their charm, let's say. Their beauty lies in the subtlety of their sexiness. Subtlety of their sexiness? Hard to grasp? Let's examine Taylor Tomasi Hill pictured above. Graphic sweater, trousers with cool exposed pockets, and then, Alaïa strappy heels. If we were to replace her shoes with some oxfords or just a classic pump, one might say her outfit is a little on the conservative grandma side, however, with those shoes, her outfit has just the right amount of pizzazz. Did you guys know pizzazz was a real word by the way? Like in the dictionary and everything? Interesting I know, but getting back to the point, strappy heels can give even the simplest of outfits a litto special extra something. Plus, they are très très flattering on your feetsies. And because the internet knows no limits and I love to procrastinate from doing any sort of academic work, here are a few I fancy:
