Shiny Shoes

This summer I’m seeing lots and lots of metallic sandals.

I decided to get me a pair.IMG_7621IMG_7623Yep, they are from Chie Mihara.  I strayed a bit from my proclivity for her mary janes, kitten heels and oxfords. A daring move for me.  So far, so good. I ordered them from Farfetch at $100.00 off the list price.  Shipping was reasonable and delivery was fast.

If it’s good enough for Michelle Obama…Michelle-Obama-London-LMilan-Christopher-Kane-Duro-Olowu-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-1It’s good enough for me. Can you see her yellow pedicure in this photo?  I just love her so much for things like that.  Does that make me shallow?

Here are some more styles found on the internet:

Lastly, I discovered these colorful metallics in my search.  Anybody out there know this brand?  I’m tempted to give the aqua or green ones a try.

One of my closest and dearest friends was inspired to send me some photos of her favorite GNO (girls night out) black kitten heels.  She admits to having paid more for these than is her custom but also says they get a lot of wear.  I’m very impressed.  Quite chic and flattering on her.  I’ve never heard of the brand; BeautiFeel.  They’re made in Israel.  She agreed to let me share them here on SS.IMG_6069IMG_6070IMG_6071IMG_6072IMG_6073

So, let’s hear it for the cute little black kitten heel.  Move over LBD, here comes the CLBKH! Here are some I’ve collected on my Pinterest board.black cutout pumpsRepettoRoseMaryJane_832911etsy pumpscoclico on amanocydwoqchie black bow pumpFrom left to right, top to bottom they are: Image found on Pinterest from the website Refinery29 (brand?); Repetto (Rose Mary Jane); Keymandesign on Etsy (Clementine); Coclico (Sarah); Cydwoq (Calamity) and Chie Mihara (Retama).

Thinking of starting a CLBKH Friday…. or maybe Tuesday.  Still thinking about the day, but send me your photos.
