One of the Privilege[d] readers alerted me to this shoe. She says she stood in it, for THREE HOURS, at a Colonial Dames event. I especially appreciate a touch of Roger Vivier squared-toe, to scare off the dowdy spirits.
It’s an absolute classic. Can go conservative, with a long taffeta skirt, or black silk trousers.
Ferragamo, via Arthur Berens. This store is one of my favorite resources for high-end classic shoes. Or just browsing when I’m too skint to buy.
