bart - you picked the best pair! I love the color and perforations.

brigaderio - congrats on finding a truly covetable pair!
And no... those are not my shoes. It's a stockroom photo from Mona Moore. I wish, though.....so many great styles these season.

Thanks luckyme & mona!

Mona! So you're Mona of Mona Moore? I LOVE that store! And recently wrote about how gutted I was about missing out on the DVN multicoloured clutch

^^ Oh, no! No association....
The name is just a coincidence

Mona Moore is a great store, though. The customer service is excellent!

Ah! :p

Yeah, their customer service is great, if only I hadn't overspent this month, and gotten the clutch earlier!

^ Does anyone know if Barney's has the heeled version of this flat beaded sandal? It wasn't the Dries pick in the shoe catalog this week ... (I prefer the design of the flat, but somehow statement shoes seem so much more of a statement with a heel :p)

Also I am wondering if any of the smaller places that sell Dries shoes have a generous return policy (i.e., I return the shoes immediately and in immaculate condition if they don't fit, and I get my money back ... I do not want store credit).

Not Barneys, but Joan Shepp has them (hope I'm referring to right shoes):

Just stopped in to say that I went to try on the heeled sandals with the beaded cuff, and came home with the black version of the shoes luckyme returned instead (which I'm sure are more useful anyway). I couldn't get past how the first pair fastened--I really hated the way they looked from the back, and felt that a cord or ribbon tie would have been so much better. I probably could have done a DIY substitution, but I was not in the mood to screw around The closure works fine, but looks pretty awful IMO. (It's a very thin leather strap that goes through the cuff and doubles back & buckles.)

^ Unfortunately I am truly awful with pictures--I was hoping you guys would tell me where to find a picture of them online The side view is the best. The beads are sewn onto the grosgrain with red thread, giving a similar vibe to the other shoe, but much subtler. The silver beads also have a hint of red--there may be a red undercoat.

I liked the cuff, although the red plastic beads were not my favorite. I am very pale & I noticed the red of the cuff had a tendency to highlight imperfections in my skin ... this wouldn't be a problem with darker skin of course.

I feel the shoes I got are very versatile & can be dressed up or down ...
