Friends, I recently got my shop on at DSW, and I can’t wait to review everything for you guys. Not gonna lie, COVID’s been rough so I’ve been living as frugally as possible, but when my mom told me they were having a huge blowout sale online, I couldn’t resist.
Today’s post is entitled “Must Have Woven Raffia Sandals” because they were my favorite shoes from the haul, but all 3 were great purchases. Two of them were from Jessica Simpson’s collection (both priced at $14.99) and the third was from Kelly & Katie? I’ve actually never heard of their line before, but the platform sandals I got were SO cute, and they were only $9.99 at the time.
I ended up gifting my mom the last pair because they didn’t fit me quite right, but she absolutely loved them. More on that later though – let’s start with the raffia sandals I can’t get enough of. Although I was able to get them for $14.99, they’re now priced at $44. With that said, I’d STILL get them because they’re super cute and comfortable AF. Plus, their original price is $100+ so you’re still getting them for a fraction of the price.
These shoes ooze style with ease, and they honestly look great with any and everything. Whether you want to dress ’em up with a cute summer dress or go casual with jeans and a tee, these will elevate your look tenfold.
Although they’re sky high – 5″ with a 1.75″ platform – they’re really easy to walk in. I’m not great at walking in heels so I always go for wedges or shoes with adjustable ankle straps. I’m wearing 6.5, and these fit true to size.
Next up, the same platform style in a different color and material. These were originally $100+ as well, but you can get them for $19-$59 depending on the color. I already have a lot of beige shoes, and I wasn’t looking to add new black designs to my collection so I went with the red.
In terms of availability, they currently have ’em in all sizes, but I still recommend hustling because I doubt they’ll be in stock for long. Suffice it to say, I highly, HIGHLY recommend these platform sandals.
Andddd last up, the Nerani platform sandal from Kelly & Katie. These shoes had mixed reviews, but my mom and I personally loved them. I honestly would’ve got another pair for myself, but they were slightly too big for me, and the slingback strap wasn’t adjustable. Luckily, they fit my mom beautifully, but I definitely recommend sizing down if you decide to purchase.
These shoes are currently available in several different colors (black, red, beige, snakeskin, navy, white and denim), and the price ranges from $14.99-$44.99. The beige is currently the most affordable color available, and the design oozes chic. I was worried it’d look cheap due to the low price tag, but the faux patent leather looks way more expensive than it is. The heel’s about 3.25″ high, and it has a 3/4″ platform!
