Real vs. Steal – Aquazzura Wild Thing Fringed Suede Sandals

Real vs. Steal – Aquazzura Wild Thing Fringed Suede Sandals

I know I already mentioned that Aquazzura is having quite the fashion moment with bloggers right now, but WOW, I then went on to discover another one of their latest top sellers: Wild Thing, a delicate suede high heel sandal with intricate lace up tassels and a fringed vamp. Now I don’t know about you, but even though the shoe looks lovely on its own, I wasn’t too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style bloggers donning their Wild Things on Instagram and all of a sudden I found myself completely obsessed with this shoe! I love how many of the bloggers used it to either add a pop of colour or to compliment their already colourful outfit. I so wish I could lavishly spend $785 on a pair of shoes, but rent is not gonna pay by itself unfortunately.
