Since I can’t be in the city that never sleeps on the regular, I try to take it with me wherever I go! Enter the “Times Square” from Oscar de la Renta, my obsession of the season. Mixed metals, printed lame leather, and rhinestones to spare sounds like a smorgasboard of a shoe, but not when you have an appetite like mine. I say, bring it on! And while I understand how all this sparkle could be too much of a good thing to some, when it’s done with de la Renta’s precision-perfect eye, it’s just right. The result? A feast for my eyes!
The neutrality of gold, silver, bronze, and white sparkle blend seamlessly, into a concoction of shimmering glitz that’s warrants a special evening. This 4.75″ platform heel is all about flash, not about crass. Sure, it shines like Times Square at night, but I think this number is more suited for Madison Avenue. At Oscar de la Renta for $1,595.
Pair with: A dress that is neutral, fitted, and cocktail-eager. Take Red Valentino‘s ruffled black stretch-jersey dress for a twirl around town – it’s calm enough to let your decadent shoes do all the shining. On Net-a-Porter for $495.
