I was cruising the Target site and came across a cute pair of sandals. I had to look at them twice because the price said ... $8.04!

What was even more shocking is that they looked just like the Yves Saint Laurent sandals Reese Witherspoon has been wearing the past few summers. (Cat Deely and Sienna Miller have also sported them.) And those gold flats cost $540!

I happen to really love the Target's more, but you choose.

I love a gladiator, but I also like a take on a classic thong sandal every spring. Instead of clomping around in a faux Haviana, this would be a first choice.
