We tried these puppies on yesterday and damn if we didn't near miss our appointment for the sake of waiting in the checkout line. Oh, Intermix, we will be back. Yes, Intermix looks like Lucky magazine exploded all over some harmless brick and mortar, but we have to give it to their buyers. Sometimes, the best things in life...are at Intermix. These Sergio Rossi Gladiator Elastic Strap Sandals are the perfect late summer-early fall stacked sandal. We nearly had to sit down and ask for a glass of water at the thought of them paired with a crisp, skinny pair of jeans. What we like about them is that the khaki and brown color combination, the somewhat conservative heel structure, and the usage of elastic make it all seem a bit Brooks Brothers but, you know, a gladiator is a gladiator and so it's a nice play between 'balthazaar frequenting chicster' and 'cape cod dwelling tennis player'. It's conservative and fashion forward, which is essentially what Sergio Rossi does best. Sigh, the fact that such things can be had for less than it costs to drink in New York for the weekend means that there is justice in the fashion world. Okay, we kid (but we do love the shoes).
