perfect for vacuuming, maybe

I really love these Kate Spade heels, at least, I think I do. They're one of my favorite shapes (maybe it's all those years of private school but I find nothing quite so adorable as a round-toed, single-strap, high-heeled mary jane), and the color is a bit unexpected. The color even has its own cool name, "Thai oil patent", which sounds like it should be very pretty with nice sheen. I do wonder if these would be a little too shiny/iridescent though, perhaps evoking the dreaded stripper shoes, especially if worn with the wrong outfit. What do you think? Is the Kate Spade "katie" sexy or trampy?

At Nordstrom's.

I just can't imagine wearing these shoes without socks. I know the socks shouldn't be there, but they are. It's like a slutty Dorothy shoe.

Love this blog's theme, by the way.

Jessica,

It IS kind of a slutty Dorothy shoe, but I think the color is sort of a twist on that. I always want to try socks with mary janes but I chicken out and wear tights instead...

Thanks for the compliment--I'm having a lot of fun exploring the concept.
