Ohhh, hello! Are we talking fall already? I’m not even in full summer-mode yet. Even though I’m still piecing together my new season’s worth of wedge sandals and woven totes, so far, I am liking what I’m seeing for post-Labor Day wear. However, I don’t want to skip ahead. I know it’s the nature of the ever-early beast (forget “fashionably late”), but come on. Summer is, of course, the best season, and besides, didn’t we just start the year? Why is time going by faster and faster?!
Putting emotions aside for the moment, I’ll admire these luxe, confetti-like pumps. Giuseppe Zanotti keeps on delivering, even into fall. Sometimes sequins on a shoe can look to rough or severe in all their coarse sparkle, but arranging them on a bed of velvet is delicious idea. Think New Year’s Eve and far beyond: lush and luscious burnt-out velvet topped with cluster-placed sequins and a golden platform is glamour and party in one neatly polished package. At Bergdorf Goodman for $795.
Pair with: If the name Hervé Léger makes you cringe with how played out it’s become, think again. Putting the bandage in a tri-tone, A-line cut makes for a party dress you can wear any time of year. On Net-a-Porter for $1,690.
