Aldo is one of those places that we inevitably pop into whether we meant to be shopping or not. You know the drill: You're walking aimlessly and — hiya! — Aldo on the corner. Or, you stopped by the mall to buy a gift — you're incredibly thoughtful — and then it turns out you're also under the Aldo spell (it's cast by adorable, affordable shoes ). It's not a bad hypnosis to fall under; What other brand lets you test every trend without going broke, while filling all the staple-shoe holes in your wardrobe?
For summer '14, the brand's offerings come packed with character. Spy slip-on sneakers and metallic sandals displaying the line's cool and occasionally cheeky personality. Plus, a perfume bottle minaudière which we're considering an unexpected gem in the otherwise straightforward collection of seasonal heels and statement accessories.
