The biggest problem I have with bags is that they cost the equivalent of about two and a half pairs of shoes (or at least the shoes I tend to buy). I am in L.O.V.E. with the Givenchy Pandora, but the thought of saving up 2 Gs is a little overwhelming. However, splurging for a pair of $600 pumps? Done and done. Ever since I bought my first pair of Givenchy heels, I’ve been fiending for another fix. I’m having a Givenchy moment, you guys. Enter the Givenchy Patent Zip Pump, ladylike, classic, edgy and timeless.

A reasonable 3 inch heel means I won’t be hobbling by the end of the evening and take a closer look at that fabulous zipper edging. I look at shoe buying as curating a collection and when a shoe fills an empty ‘slot’ in the collection, I’m more likely to splurge. My current black pump collection includes a pair of very prim Kate Spade kitten heels that date back to my days living in conservative Washington D.C. and a pair of sky high black patent platforms that really aren’t suitable for daytime. These shoes provide the perfect in-between solution. Classy enough to wear before the sun goes down and fun enough to party until it comes up the next day. Buy through Kirna Zabete for $595.
