Patti did a great post yesterday on "Out with the drab. In with the fab!" in which she explores finding ways to build on great basics to start adding fun to her wardrobe....
"One definite spicy seasoning for me is The Shoe. And that's fairly recent in my life. For many decades I stuck with safe choices. In my corporate years, the nice stacked pump or sling-back. Simple flats or brown sandals made do for casual hours."
I think my friend is dead on! And, in my most humble opinion, where better to start than a black pointy toe pump! There are so many variations of this, with the upside being that you can choose your heel height for maximum comfort.
The black pointy toe is classic, reminiscent of Chanel, and just about goes with EVERYTHING! When I put on this outfit, I originally had a different shoe....a platform strappy heel that looked great but a bit too va va voom for church! So I grabbed my standby and POW! What could easily look a bit funky (and there ain't a THANG wrong with funky!!), went straight to classy.
The beauty of a black pointy toe is that it can be worn with jeans, slacks, skirts, bright prints, white, longer shorts (I'm not really a fan of heals with short shorts), cropped pants.....just about everything! And it just makes everything look GREAT!
If I had to go on a trip and take only ONE pair of shoes with me, I think it would be these. I really think it's one shoe that would be at home in any woman's wardrobe!
