Last week I posted on a midi-length, black satin skirt that I paired with boots and strappy sandals. Neither shoe would work for a meeting tomorrow, however, both have a low (kittenish) heel and that got me thinking. I can’t believe that I’m writing this but, after 6 years, I need an alternative to block-heeled pumps — Lord knows I have a number of them.
My obsession with the block heel started with the Valentino Tango in 2012 — I bought 3 pairs. Then came the Gucci Marmont (2 pairs), the Chanel slingback and Chloé Perry followed. I still love and wear them all, especially with jeans while running around, but it’s time to shake up my shoe choices.
Not only does the kitten heel feel fresh, the classic pump, in any heel height, is back on my radar. Thankfully, there are many to choose from.
