Embellished Summer Thongs

Embellished thongs are classic summer shoeswear. You can basically buy one pair and wear it until it breaks since their designs don't change much each year. I used to dislike such fancy sandals because they looked so overcrowded with shiny stones and seemed like the type of shoes that only slutty rich girls type would wear. But when I was shopping with my mum, she kept trying on embellished thongs, and I realised that as long as these thongs were matched well with clothing, then they are excellent summer shoes.

Embellished thongs, which are basically fancy flip flops aren't exactly this year's most fashionable shoes (platforms.) But they are comfortable and great to wear for doing casual stuff, like shopping in the local mall and the beach.

Cole Hann Gala Thongs -My mum bought these in gold. I love how the crystals are so simple. This pair would match practically all daytime outfits.

Guess flip flops -This pair is really similar except instead of crystals, the embellishment are rhinestones. I think the crystals on the Cole Hann pair looks classier, but this pair would look great with jeans.

Manolo Blahnik embellished thong sandal -This pair has a lot of crystals, so be careful when matching outfits. It would look great with wrap dresses and evening wear.

Jimmy Choos jeweled ankle wrap thong -Sooo gorgeous! Perfect to wear with white shorts and pretty, neautral coloured tops.

A. Marinelli 'Idal' thong -Since we can't all afford Choos and Manolos, this is a cheaper choice at only $84.95 (Nordstrom.) The great thing is that it doesn't look cheap. I really like the colors of the little beads.

Michael Kors metallic flat thongs -OK, this thong isn't exactly embellished, but it's such a great investment because of its simplicity and would go with all outfits.

Miu Miu gold gemometic sandals -If you prefer not-so-simple looking sandals, then you would love this one. Another great pair to wear with this season's neatural colored clothes.

Stuart Weitzman Starfish sandals -I LOVE this pair. It's soo pretty with all those starfish...

Kate Spade Kimora embellished thong sandals -This is another one of my favourites. I have no idea what those white blobs are but they're so cute! (And the color is totally this season!)

J. Crew nautical sandals -These would go perfectly with this season's nautical-themed clothes. Most of them are about $98 per pair so you're looking for something to wear everyday this summer, or if you're the beachy/ yacht club type of girl, then go check out J. Crew!

I love embellished thongs! Especially Miu Miu and Marni ones. I think D&G had some great ones a summer ago maybe? I love this blog, by the way, keep up the awesome work!

I love Miu Miu and Jimmy Choo thongs, I think they would be perfect even with an evening outfit. The pair by Blahnik is gorgeous too, but I don't really like thongs with kitten heels (and not even with high heels): thongs should be flat!

Sandals are always great... I particularly hate flip flops (both the design and the sound they make) so strappy sandals are the ultimate substitute.

I love the look but hate the chafing.

I love those, especially the Kors-- just lovely. I can't wear sandals, though. My toes are so disgusting & must be covered at all times. My mission this summer is to find fancy espedrilles to cover up my feets & still look beachy. Any suggestions, Ms. Fashion?

hi, i fell in love with the gold kors sandals, so i searched everwhere for them-- but they are sold out of my size. however, i did find an alternative (cheaper though) the Bernardo 'Medieval' sandal in gold is 89. also found a high heeled cork wedge bottom alternative by Athena Alexander 'Leta' Sandal in gold $79 however, the cork makes it more of a casual look. =)

Ooh la love.

Adorable thongs, but no amount of adorableness will get me into a shoe with less than a 4" heel.

I was almost, almost tempted though.

I'm a very short woman (just made 5'o ft. )very close to turning 30 yrs old & very confident! I never liked flats & I especially hated my toes. So, I always wore high heel shoes that covered my feet. As I got older I learned to love myself & accept my body. Now, all I wear is open toe (I prefer thong) sandals...and I attract men that are 6'0 ft and over! Ladies don't be afraid of what you are & what you like..wear them flats with pride!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
