There was a time where I thought that pointed-toe shoes were witch-like.
That was before the advent of Sex and the City and Carrie Bradshaw’s elevation of the item to fashion icon status.
Ever since, I’ve had at least a few pointy-toed lovelies in regular rotation, even when triple platforms were all the rage. (Remember?! Feels like a distant memory at this point but, yes, there was a time when we were sporting them around like it was nobody’s biznass. I even invested in a pair of YSL Tribute sandals similar to these except suede, gray, and without the t-strap, which may or may not prove to come back into fashion currency at some point in the future. Possibly a lost cause.) I think I’ve found my next wear-with-everything pair for work purposes (on sale for $99 — don’t mind if I do):
Love their slight edginess and their brilliant black-and-silver combo. I’m so into silver these days — it feels so fresh. I’m envisioning these puppies with my LRR (lather-rinse-repeat) work combo: black shades (Elizabeth + James, $185), big pearl necklace (KJL, $115), patterned blouse (Alice + Olivia, on sale for $126), full skirt ($110):
Finish with a great red mani (Essie’s Really Red, $8):
Pair it with a red iPad case (Gucci, $305) and you’re good to go:
