YSL Tribute Platform T-Strap Sandal

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a fantastic charity event at the Neiman Marcus in Newport Beach. There, I won a raffle… And my prize? Money towards designer shoes from their Ladies’ Shoe Salon!!! I couldn’t believe it! I never win anything! What an incredible day!

So, what did I choose? A pair of the cult-classic YSL Tribute Platform T-Strap Sandals* in Cuoio (a rich burnt sienna brown color).

I know what you are thinking… With so many amazing new shoe styles available, why did I go with these? Well, I have lusted after these beauties since their release a few years ago. To me, they are the perfect dress-up brown leather sandal as the classic design transcends seasonal trends. Also, the comfortable toe box and platform make them the ideal 24-hour pair. Sticking with my usual stylist mantra, I wanted something that would fill a void in my shoe closet as well as an investment piece that can be worn again and again. I am so happy with my new shoes! Yay!!!

*I should note that there has been a name change. The new designer, Hedi Slimane, has renamed the French superbrand “Saint Laurent.” The “Yves” has been dropped. I only referred to the brand of these shoes as “YSL” because the insole is still printed with the YSL gold logo.
