Prada – Pointed Toe Slingback Pump

If you know me, you know I have an admittedly unhealthy obsession with Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the fashion and couture associated with the Audrey Hepburn classic. If you knew that about me, then you probably also know that I spend an obscene percentage of my day looking at shoes in some form or another, whether online, in a store, or on people’s feet. So when I saw this Prada looker online, I was drooling (it was actually gross, ask my sister).

No such thing as the perfect shoe, of this I am aware (sadly), cause there’s no such thing as perfect. But shit, Prada! This is pretty close. And just pretty. So so pretty.  The color of peaches and creme, patent-leather, a delicate bow, my fingers are getting tingly with excitement as I type! The low heel gives them an antique feel, but they’re no so antique that one might assume you stole them from your grandmother’s closet (though that does depend on what your grandmother usually keeps in her closet, I suspect).  And to top it off, pointed toes, which make everyone feel feminine and girly!

Thank you thank you thank you Prada! A job well done as always, and I cannot wait to sink my feet into a pair, bank balance providing, that is.

Fun fact: Tonight J and I return to our regular stomping ground and I could not be more excited to see her and the sushi (but mostly her).


Prada – Buckle Slingback Sandal

I know, I know, I said I hated sling-backs and you should do anything and everything to avoid them, but there’s an exception to every fashion rule. These stunning Pradas have a buckle on their sling; you can adjust the tension on your ankle to perfection.

And how can you say no to these bad boys? Five-inch heel, one-inch platform, a nice natural color, great for the summer or a day in sunny California. Normally I’d include Florida in the list of places you could wear this dashing pair of heels but my recent 8 day jaunt in the Sunshine State was privy to 30-degree weather. Fahrenheit.

But about these shoes, to me they seem like a natural boost; their natural tone makes them comfortable and easy and a pleasant enhancement that doesn’t take the attention away from your natural beauty. Prada is great at that being a brand, a beacon, that has been so popular for almost a century (just three years shy). They’re able to stand strong on their own as great shoes but they don’t take anything away from the woman who wears them.
