Pretty in Prabal Gurung for Target

Before we get into the details of this outfit (oh hey, it’s that pencil skirt again), let’s talk about these Prabal Gurung for Target shoes.

About few weeks back, Bianca texted me asking how the hell I got these cute kicks to stay on my feet. My answer was a succinct, “I didn’t.”

They’re pretty, yes, but unfortunately, are also poorly constructed.

Despite the four-inch heel, they’re surprisingly comfortable — once you can figure out how to keep them on.*

Jessica can vouch — following these photos, I changed all but my shoes and headed to MSG (that’s Madison Square Garden; NYC acronym lesson is here) for the Knicks game. Yes, we wore heels. After many rounds of bending down to re-strap my sandals, I finally figured out a semi-workable solution.

If you own these pretty Prabals, LISTEN UP: After you fasten the sandal, flip (or twist) the strip so that the clasp is inside out/against your skin. That way, it won’t have such an easy time flipping open when you walk.

My advice? Unfortunately, I’d have to caution you not to buy these for $100 on eBay — which is one of the few places you’ll find them. But the Prabal Gurung for Target collection is gorgeous, and thankfully, there’s a few other pairs of the (walkable) shoes available online.

*Editor’s note: I should have thought better of this purchase, knowing the strap was a slip-on buckle. That said, I’m feeling inspired to craft a post on how to shop for high-quality shoes online. Interested? Let me know, if so, and I’ll draft up my shoe shopping secrets (the latest purchase being these BCBGMAXAZRIA heels).
