A Summer Staple - The Black Espadrille

Looking for a multi-functional summer shoe that can take you from a casual lunch straight out to a beachy club at night?  A picnic rendez-vous or a Friday night movie date?  Look no further than a classic pair of black woven espadrilles!

Slightly different than the above due to the 'slide on' nature of these next wedges versus the around-the-ankle look but keeps with the same black criss-cross wedge theme...

And I think the unique chain trim on these almost gives them a bit of a 'Rocker' vibe!

I have been known to splurge on what I call "to-die-for" items, especially when I cannot find anything similar, but when it comes to great finds I never turn my nose up at a brand before I try it - to me fashion is all about the resulting 'look', not the label! 

Question for the Day:

When you need a basic staple for your wardrobe, do you typically splurge or keep searching for that perfect deal?
