I really love Jessica Simpson when she's casual and wears a high platform clog. These shoes are a replica of the satin and leather Miu Miu clog shoes which retail for $490. These Steve Madden clogs are pretty similar and come in at $150. I like the height -- and for a short girl, I need it. I love the comfort factor too, the foot bed is nice and wide and comfy and you won't know you're traisping around in a 5 incher.

I love the way Jessica mixes the neutral suede color of the shoe with a blue toenail polish for those of you who always try different colors of blue like the Essie Lapis of Luxury blue or the Turquoise & caicos green. It looks really fresh.

I know some of you are going to go medieval on me for this price of a shoe at $150 but you know, some shoes which are seasonless and timeless (this looks like a hippie shoe from the 1970s -- hello, 30 plus years ago) are worth the extra $$$. This is a groovy shoe and Steve Madden can be your one big purchase as clog-like shoes are the rage right now.

Buy your flat sandals for $10-15. You can wear them now with rompers and summer dresses and later for pre-fall with jeans and then add a pair of grey tights and you're still going to look current. Clogs will be with us for a while because they work really well with denim -- which doesn't seem to be going out of style. And if you're not nuts for denim with eveyrthing, a maxi dress could work here as well as a cute floral sundress.
