Tory Burch - Abitha - Gold Metallic Puffy Leather Thong Sandal at Footnotesonline Women's Designer Shoes
So you've had a lot on your plate this past week (ha), but that doesn't mean you need to wear it on your waist (or hips, or thighs...) for the rest of the year! Since many of our favorite fitted winter sweaters and cocktail dresses can be very unforgiving when it comes to revealing every bump or bulge, the latest in shaping lingerie does things for our body that we can really be thankful for! Looking to appear sleeker in that bandage minidress? Look no further than this strapless dress shaper by Julie France that will keep things looking toned without strapping down your chest in the meantime! And if you want to be seamless in that high-waisted pencil skirt and definitely don't have room for panty lines, this shaping thong will give you all the tummy firming you need without the extra fabric. Take a look at the slideshow for the full selection of our favorite miracle-working lingerie for all kinds of trouble spots!

Flip-flops, thongs, rubber slippers ... whatever you call them, you can't deny that they're awesome. I'm usually a dresses and heels type of girl. No sneakers for me! But I can't always run around town and complete errands in a timely and comfortable manner if I'm teetering around in heels. I love flip-flops. They're comfortable and you can barely tell you have anything on your feet! I've even gone hiking in flip-flops and felt as at ease as if I had a pair of Nike sneakers on! Another great thing? They're so cheap, with retailers like Old Navy and Wal-Mart offering multiple pairs in every color imaginable for less than it would cost to hop the subway. I personally own quite a few pairs of these rubber slippers in a multitude of colors and I love matching them to a casual jeans and a t-shirt type outfits I usually wear for a relaxed weekend. However, as great and easy as these simple pieces of footwear are, I still run into a dilemma. Sure, flip-flops are comfortable and totally appropriate for just hanging out with family and friends, but what if you have something to go to that requires actual footwear? Most of the time, my feet are too sore from the night before to imagine stuffing them into another pair of stilettos, but I can't roll into a nice luncheon with a pretty sundress and some ratty flip-flops! Luckily, it's summer and designers are offering a great selection of fancy flip-flops featuring jewels, metallics, leather, and other fun and pretty details at more-than-affordable prices. Check out the slideshow for flip-flops that will enhance the outfit without hurting the feet!
