Shoes of November 2003


Spiegel calls these mules, but they defy that definition. If these were mules in the true sense, they wouldn't have that ankle strap, and I suspect I wouldn't be able to walk in them. And without that strap, they wouldn't be nearly as delicious. I would never wear a blue shoe...except these. Such a rich color I mistook them for black at first. I like the little vneck on top. I love the teeny thin little heels. But the prize is the strap--something wonderfully, casually precarious about that strap, looking like it might slip at any moment. And the very smallest of buckles keeping it there. I'd wear these with a sheer just above the knee skirt, almost thin enough to see something one shouldn't, but not quite. And a blouse of the same design.

Kate Spade

These pumps would be non-descript at best if it wasn't for that unmistakeable accent. The lizard strap makes these shoes. They have a nice square toe and a good columnar heel. But it's all about the strap. It makes them a little bit witchy and a lot more stylish. I'd wear these with a knee length skirt and a soft red sweater.
