Okay, being totally honest, the first sight of the strap-happy, snakeskin-printed Suzanne sandals from Sole Society had us feeling both anticipation and dread.
Especially during the bank-depleting holiday season, our Spending Anxiety Syndrome was on high alert. But much like a bandage to a boo-boo, behold: The beauty of the under-$60 price tag swung in to save us from potential buyer's remorse.
Prepare to rock these metallic sex-pots on the holiday-party circuit (opaque tights required), or save them to sass up your warmer climate ensembles — no matter what, we've deemed this buy a safer-than-sorry bet. Your wallet will agree.
Suzanne Open-toe heel, $59.95, available at Sole Society.
