I really wanted to go a little nuts mixing prints, but I had to go to a show at the St. Regis Hotel and didn’t want to look insane. I also needed to do a bit of walking so wearing high heels while carrying a small clutch that couldn’t hold a change of shoes was not an option. I saw these Stuart Weitzman suede pointy-toe flats at the Off-Fifth outlet near my parent’s house and fell in love. They remind me of a pair I had in the 80’s that I wore to death. I couldn’t decide between the black suede or the red suede, so I got both. I know I will wear both a great deal this fall and winter and for the price, I couldn’t not take both, could I?
I am also wearing the $20 ring Carol found for me at Macy’s for my Macy’s photo shoot last month! Now I am absolutely obsessed with my new Stuart Weitzman Cavalino calf hair and leather clutch and I think the print goes perfectly with the floral skirt and basically everything else I own so expect to see it a lot more in the future. Apparently Stuart Weitzman is my man this season!
Anyway, I am glad I opted for these shoes as it turned out I walked about 30 blocks that day!
