The Goods: ASOS Raffia Sandals Worthy of a Roman Holiday

We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one stand-out steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: easy-on-the-wallet ASOS sandals that’ll make you go rah-rah for raffia.

Raffia isn’t just for rope and roofs anymore.

Martin Margiela, Creatures of the Wind and Madrid-based newcomer Delpozo have all made the palm fiber posh, and now you can get in on the action for less than $100. (Money doesn’t grow on trees, you know.)

A little bit retro and a lot summery, these $76 low-heeled sandals feature woven magenta and taupe stripes. Throw in an ankle strap and a more-than-walkable heel, and you’re free to skip securely down every sidewalk Keira Knightley-style. A poufy Chanel dress and post-nuptial glow wouldn’t hurt, either.

If you’re not getting married any time soon, try Audrey Hepburn circa Roman Holiday. These scooter-ride-proof shoes, a knotted kerchief and a jaunty full skirt are just right for running into Gregory Peck.
