Satin for day

Manolo Blahnik

Manolo Blahnik pumps in satin

A friend was over last weekend and I showed her these Manolo Blahnik pumps that I was about to return. I love the heel height and I want to wear pumps again after a long hiatus but we agreed that I would probably not wear them a lot since they are satin. But now I am not so sure.

Carine Roitfeld

I don’t like the shine on Carine’s leather pumps.

My beloved Prada satin shoes

I pulled out the satin shoes that I already own and realized that I wear them all the time and mostly for day.

So I think I am going to keep the Manolo pumps, but should I take back the suede boots?…

  • I love satin shoes, but wouldn’t think of wearing them during the day…as i associate them with evening, even my flat satins! A nice change i would say. I think Carines patent shoes are great with all the black and no texture…adds a bit of shine.

  • Why not? so much velvet for day – why not satin? and keep the suede boots, too.

  • When I fall in love with a pair of shoes, I will wear them until they’ve been worn into a state that’s shameful and they must be retired! The last pair this happened with is a pair of black satin ballet flats. Keep the satin. Fall in love with them. Wear them for day or night or whenever you want a touch of glam in your life.
