Miu Miu Gingham Taffeta Sandals for the First Day of Summer!

Miu Miu Blue Gingham Taffeta SandalMiu Miu Red Tafetta Gingham Sandals

Manolo says, today the summer officially arrives, and what could be more summery than these ridiculously cheerful and cheerfully ridiculous taffeta gingham platform sandals from the Miu Miu?

Too often are we required to wear serious clothing that conveys importance and sobriety. Too infrequently are we free to dress in ways that are expressive of joy.

It is summer, and we need the sort of happy-silly shoe that makes both the those who wear it and those who see it worn giddy with joy. Be joyful, wear happy shoes!

    Such happy-making shoes, indeed! I’ve noticed that Miu Miu has been turning out a lot of whimsical designs lately; it’s a good thing they’re right up my alley. :)

    Love the gingham, wish the heel were just a bit more moderate…

    I adore gingham, so it’s fortunate that navy and red aren’t my colors, or there would go another $471.
