I’m obsessed with two of the tackiest things in the history of style: leopard print and gold.
But wait! Before you fire up your poison-tipped fashion darts, I’ve made it my personal mission to find ways to incorporate these things into my outfits in ways that I hope scream “class” and not “Boca Raton mah-jong tournament.” One of my favorite metallic scores is my beloved Stuart Weitzman gold flats that I nabbed for $50 at a Saks 5th Avenue outlet store in Connecticut. They have a blue lining that has dalmatians on it! I was in love from day one.
Since moving to New York, I’ve become one of those toting-your-heels-in-a-reusable-bag commuters, so rather than break my ankles tottering through the subway station in spiky stilettos, I wear flats — like these — everyday. I wear my gold Weitzmans with black skinnies, I wear them with jeans, I wear them with tights. Recently I’ve been wearing them Urkel-style with socks.
Pointy-toed flats are supposed to be a flagrant man-repeller, right? Well, I wear these things a bunch and I have yet to see dudes ricochet away from them as if propelled by a mysterious anti-flats force. Although, two guys on 14th Street recently skipped a catcall to tell me instead, “Wow, your shoes are really shiny.” Yes. Yes, they are.
