I’ve been obsessively wearing these slingbacks ever since I snagged them at Barneys last month. I had ducked into the store trying to avoid a downpour and ended up wandering one floor too far, then leaving with said footwear. But, I do love when an impulse purchase becomes the best purchase of the season. These shoes have a tendency to make just about any outfit a bit more ladylike, which is a perfect considering I can tend to gravitate toward more masculine separates.
Most recently, they made their way into this outfit with a layered skirt and turtle-tank combination for happy hour at Goodnight Sonnys in the East Village. An elevated look for this casual afternoon perched on the corner of St. Marks and First, and even better paired with dollar oysters, half-price margaritas, and some of my favorite company.
