Snob Essentials

Rachel Zoe Collection Giveaway: The Parton


The Parton sandal may have a lot of elements going on – snakeskin-texture, a variety of straps, a stacked-wood platform – but it’s as smooth as can be. So smooth, I can see this sandal going anywhere you want it to and blending right in. Think of the Parton as the laidback version of the Bonnie – a chunkier heel means more opportunity for wear, especially in the daytime.
It also means a higher level of comfort. I love a heel you can actually wear without your soles aching after ten minutes, and even though this heel will give you nearly 6” of added height, the layered platform means you certainly won’t feel it. And in graduated shades of brown, it’s as neutral as they come. Brown is the black of summer shoes, and this could easily be your ultimate summer sandal.

To Enter to win, all you have to do is:

1. LIKE the Rachel Zoe Collection on Facebook.

2. Tell us in the comment section (of this post) where you would wear these summer-tastic sandals.

The versatile Parton makes a great day-to-night shoe. I would wear them out to a festive lunch with friends, with a brightly print sundress and chain-strapped clutch. Then I’d segue them into evening cocktail hour, ideally at a casual-cool outdoor patio on a hot summer night. The winning snob will be selected at random. Good luck!

The Parton is available at Neiman Marcus for $325.

  1. I would wear these with a pretty wrap dress or a smart pair of slacks and crisp white button down shirt for work…Then I would throw on a flirty skirt or maybe a pair of jeans with a sexy top for a night on the town with the girls or a casual dinner with my boyfriend. You can do so much with these! Love them!!!!

  2. I would wear these fab skyscraper heels to a place where I don’t have to walk on them for very long: a musical or play!

  3. I would wear these summer-tastic sandals on my amazing vacation adventure to Southeast Asia! I’d pair them with a khaki mini, and nude top and a bright crossbodybag. My husband is 6’6 and I’m 5’2, so I need all the height help I can get.

    I like the Rachel Zoe Collection on Facebook (of course!)

  4. I would wear these for dinner along the boardwalk and I would pair them with a beautiful print maxi dress!

    WOW! The question for me would be..where wouldn’t I wear these amazing sandals?!! I have so many things I’d pair them with but I’d really love them to see these with anything white. I can visualize these w/ white slacks & tank and an awesome standout necklace in these colors or an off the shoulder sun dress, long tank maxi dress, great pair of jeans or even a suit. I’d wear them to my office, out for a night w/friends or on a dinner date.

    I’d wear this with a bright maxi dress. I can finally wear something long with this pair!

  12. I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE SANDALS!! I would wear these with a few different outfits as they are so very versatile.

    My go-to outfit for these would be White SKkinny Jeans, a Chambray Buttondown Shirt, and a Rachel Zoe “Zoe tote”.. topped off with a fab pair of round-eyed sunnies and orange nail polish.

    Though I could also definitely see myself wearing these babies with a longer chiffon maxi skirt, a white tee (ala T by A. Wang) a wide-brim floppy hat and some aviators.

These are the perfect summer heels, and I’d wear them everywhere I go: to the store in a fun floral romper, at the movies in casual jeans and a burnout top, with a slinky outfit at karaoke, in a maxi dress malling, with tee and tank at the lake or pool, or a breezy sundress at summer festivals…the possibilities are endless!

  16. I envision myself with Bonnie at the airport en route to Playa del Carmen and on location w/ Parton at the beach party!

  17. Oh my gosh, for me these beautiful sandals have indefinite possibilities to be worn with.

The next few days at the beach, I’d wear them with a big sun hat, a yellow chiffon top and white crochet shorts to enjoy a cold drink at the patio or club!

    Too many outfit ideas with this perfect darling, and the bonus, would be to create a false illusion of lengthening my legs! One word, perfect 🙂

  51. I would wear the Parton to Dallas Museum of Arts’ night events. Good food, good music, good friends, and a little champagne would be most complimentary to these gorgeous shoes.

  52. I love love love the chunky heel and the stacked platform. I think these would be fabulous with a pair of turquoise jeans, a great print top from DVF’s spring collection, big sunglasses, and a bright coral pedicure. Amazing for an outdoor brunch on a sunny Sunday morning.

    It would be perfect for a Shopping after-noon with girls, or a nightlife party by the beach, or on a date :$
    I mean, i can wear that anywhere i go in summer 🙂
