Hi everyone, I’m Hilary. We haven’t met yet, I’m new to the TalkShoes team, and I am SHOE OBSESSED. I can wax on and on about what makes a shoe good for paragraphs. I promise not to bore you like that, though.
Full disclosure: I have been a shoe-a-holic since I was just a kid. I even lied to my mom that my feet had grown and my sneakers were too small just to get a new pair. I’ve since evolved past Stride-Rite and my closet is now filled with Giuseppe Zanotti, Miu Miu, Prada and so many more fabulous shoes that I’ve bought instead of buying things I need…like food. Anyway, I thought I’d kick off my first post by talking about what I want right now.
I’ve been on a bit of a bootie kick lately and while I’m full-on obsessed with the Chloe Susan Studded Ankle Boot, the other shoe topping my lust list right now is this Loeffler Randall open toe bootie. Loeffler Randall shoes just ooze downtown, understated and sexy. I love the idea of a bootie that shows off a pedicure, which to my mind, means it’s summer friendly. Jeans, leggings or dresses, this workhorse pretty much would rock it with everything. I’m also obsessed with the substantial stacked heel because it won’t get shredded by NYC’s concrete sidewalks, which have eaten my stilettos alive. Buy through ShopBop for $395.
