Miu Miu Sequined Leather Pumps, $890 via Net-a-Porter
I’m a huge Miu Miu fangirl, as you all know, and I’m always prepared to slobber all over whatever new Miu Miu might land on the Net-a-Porter new arrivals page. And don’t get me wrong, I do really, really like the Miu Miu Sequined Leather Pumps. I like that they’re a little bit like the disco version of Dorothy’s ruby slippers. I like that the sequins are a departure from Miu Miu’s normal glitter shenanigans. But…this heel height. THIS HEEL HEIGHT. It’s giving me anxiety.
It’s too high to be one of those demi-heels that doubles as a flat, but it’s too low to be an honest-to-god chunky statement heel. It looks kind of like a kid’s shoe, which I’m sure is part of the point of choosing that heel height, but I feel like it’s exceptionally difficult to pull off that kind of look in real life. Unless, ya know, you’re Zoey Deschanel and you also have a closet full of impeccably tailored, perfect vintage dresses with which to pair it. This shoe also requires you to have blunt-cut bangs. Don’t ask me why, those are just the rules. If you can abide by them, these pumps are $890 via Net-a-Porter.
