Earlier this week, Dhani — our newly minted California gal — had a couple-day layover here in New York before she headed off to Paris for the last stop on this season's fashion week train. (On that note, I implore you to read her Saint Laurent review from Tuesday and try to tell me it wasn't one of the best runway reviews you've read in your life.) On Monday morning, all bleary eyed from the Oscars, we all met up with ample caffeine sources at hand to film our red carpet recap video. Dhani walked into our shooting location wearing these great black mules; I'd seen her wear them before, but had forgotten how cool and understated they could be with the right outfit.
In the last year, I've been doing my own due diligence to try and find a pair of Dhani-esque black leather slides that I could wear all spring and summer. I've wanted them to be black (easy enough), comfortable (and painless to break in) and as minimal (i.e., COOL!) as possible. These patent Everlane slides, made of 100 percent Italian leather and reasonably priced at $145, fit the bill — and are different enough from Dhani's that we won't have to oddly match whenever she's back in New York. I'd wear them with a swingy dress for a cocktail party or cropped jeans and tee for literally every other day of my life. Either way, these guys are real winners. They'll be mine soon enough.
Everlane The E2 Pointed Slide, $145, available at Everlane.
