The latest must-have staple in this
season’s wardrobe is the pom-pom gladiator sandal. Of course, it all starts
right at the top of the league, with the luxury brands being at least five
steps ahead of us all and setting the trend without even meaning to. Aquazzura
and Alameda Turquesa have brought out the first styles for us to enjoy (and
last over) at the sky-high prices, but fear not, as fashion moves fast and

It was so unusual and I was very sure that there would be no way in hell I will find something similar for a lower price. But, as always, persistence guarantees inevitability of the results! I have found a pair that looks basically the same (even cuter if you ask me!) for just a fraction of a price.
Out of all places (Ebay – I know right!), one place where I only shop for the most random stuff, like wall decorations and storage dividers, I have found the most incredible Alameda Turquesa dupes! Not to mention that the pair that I bought from Ebay actually looks like the photo, fits well and on top of that, every pair is hand made. Since the purchase I have been wearing them non-stop and I am so keen to get more, as there are so many to chose from on the market right now. They are comfortable, playful and very feminine – all the things I could ask for this summer. So whether you are looking to splash out on a pair or do it on a budget, this shoes is an absolute must!
