why I love it: Madewell typically causes problems for me because every time I walk into the store, I want to buy everything in sight. These sandals have been around for almost two years, and I've been lusting after them ever since I first saw them during the summer of 2010. It seemed like every woman in New York made these sandals part of her summer uniform that year, and with good reason. They're completely versatile, transition easily from day to night and look just as chic with a pair of jeans as they do with a summer sundress. They're also super comfortable because they're a fairly low heel (3.5 inches is about as low as I'm willing to go!) and have a built-in platform. Two years later, they're still just as current as they were during the summer of their debut. Maybe the summer of 2012 will be when these sandals finally make the leap from my wish list to my closet?
