Stripes and floral? If you raised your eyebrow, know that I was right there with you at first. But after looking at how this design tastefully combines the two, I had to reconsider. On top of all that, the Giuseppe Zanotti Satin Stripe Floral Pumps add an edgy, totally glam, emerald-cut crystal heel.

The black and white stripe background makes a graphic canvas for the tropical petals, and the contrast only heightens the vivid colors of the floral print. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of satin pumps. I’m always willing to make an exception, though, and Mr. Zanotti may have an exception on his hands. The satin works well with this pattern, giving it a crisp and polished finished. This pumps, with an all-satin upper and leather trim, has a pointed toe with a one inch hidden platform and five inch heel.

Now, we must talk about that heel! And I don’t just mean the height, I mean we need to discuss those emerald-cut crystals. Between the finish of the heel itself and the inlaid crystals, these shoes give off the ultimate shine. In fact, it was the crystals that immediately attracted me to this pump, and I must say, this is one of my favorites by Guiseppe Zanotti. Buy yours through Bergdorf Goodman for $1150.
