Fashion Week is coming up, and while searching for a pair of nice-ish new shoes that I could conceivably wear in February (seriously, why is everyone selling sandals right now?), I found these beauties that are perfect for me in so many ways. They fulfill my apparent criteria that shoes be black and have a d'orsay silhouette and an ankle strap; they're easy to walk in; they cost under $100 and they're the perfect replacement for the similar croc-effect Topshop slingbacks I bought last year and have worn to death.
So yes, they may look a lot like shoes I already have, but I already have a number of outfits I plan to wear them with, so long as the weather holds out.
Jive Metallic Mid-Heel Shoes, $75, available at Topshop.
