Occasionally I pop over to TalkShoes and wax poetic about how much I love shoes. Once in a while, that love borders on obsessive. Like, can’t-breathe, can’t-think, can’t-sleep must not stop until I own them obsessive. When I’m huddled in a corner, Google-ing a pair at 4 AM instead of sleeping, I know I’ve found a winner. Right now, the winner is the Givenchy Lace-Up Kitten Heel.
With every obsession, you’ll find me ‘pinning’ on Pinterest and ogling looks with the shoes on style blogs, all while figuring out what kind of gymnastics I can do with my bank account to contort it into a convincing argument that I can afford them. And every time, I think to myself “You will never fall in love this hard again. There can never be another shoe that incites THIS level of lust.”
This year, the first shoe was the Chloe Susan. I procured them in Paris, justifying the purchase due to the VAT refund. And then…the Givenchy Kitten Heel Lace Up Sandal. I found them at Kirna Zabete in SoHo when I was supposed to be working. Without warning, there was the familiar lump in my throat, the urgent, slightly panicked feeling…I had to have them. The heel is the perfect height, low enough to trek the streets of NYC. The open-toe makes them useful for all but the coldest of the winter months and they are just so damn edgy. These shoes = insta cool. What do you think? Buy through Kirna Zabete for $795
