Versatile Style: Rock & Republic Clove Sandal


I decided to kick off the inclusion of shoes in Versatile Style with a bang! Rock & Republic are a sought-after brand, constantly worn by our favorite celebs. I’ve pined over their designs (especially their shoes) for years, but could never afford the price tag. However, I’ve stumbled upon Shoe Thief.
The fine people at Shoe Thief “poach, pillage and plunder the best brands and conspire with top designers to bring you the very best deals”. But seriously, these R&R shoes retail at $325 and are available for $95! I’m talking to you, all of my budget-hunting babes!
The Clove by Rock & Republic are made of gorgeous leather, interior and all! The criss-cross design of the straps is unique and the studs add a touch of rock-n-roll glam. The attention to detail on these shoes is superb; right down to the braids that run along the back and the stud zipper pull. Nothing was overlooked in the design of the Clove! These shoes are so overtly evening, but I wanted to show you how to tone down a pair of tough heels with girly elements.
Let’s begin with daytime.

Start by finding a uber-feminine dress; bonus points if you go for virginal white! This will serve as a solid foundation for your girly outfit. The waterfall-style cardigan is ladylike and the coral is unmistakably a “girl” color. The crossbody bag leaves your hands free to dig through goodies in shops or take pictures and the salmon tone matches the cardi. The chain strap is subtle, but gives an air of class. Top it with super girly jewels (think dainty pendants and floral pieces) and a flower-filled headband! Voila!
And now evening.

Like I said, these sandals are all rock-n-roll and I totally ran with that theme. Get a pair of liquid leggings – they are beyond sexy. The tee I chose will hit at your waist, but if you’re uncomfortable flaunting your bum in the leggings, choose a longer tee and you’re problem is solved! Just make sure that it’s flowy and has some cool rock elements. I’m a fan of color, but chose a vampy magenta wristlet to still give the impression that I’m a tough chick. Finish with an industrial-inspired ring and, a must-have in my opinion, the cross-forehead chain!
And if I haven’t convinced you yet, take a look at the shoes in some real-life pics courtesy of yours truly!

I hope you are now inspired to pick yourself up a pair of hardcore heels and dress them up to girly perfection! Remember, the Clove sandals can be found on Shoe Thief, along with a huge selection of great designer brands at discount. Happy shopping!
