I can't even tell you how long I've been a fan of Nine West. The brand just radiates adorable. And it knows how to make affordable, yet still on-trend shoes us fashionistas crave over and over. Sure, I'll splurge every now and then on a juicy pair of Kate Spades or MJs (that's Marc Jacobs, of course). But, let's face it. I haven't filled my closet to the brim with $700 pairs of shoes - it's mostly affordable versions (and sale items, natch) of trends like metallics or gladiators - shown here. In fact, my gladiators are Nine West!
The Joely ($170) is sizzling this summer - it was even featured in the February issue of Vogue (hello, fashion bible!). Snakeskin and 4-inch heel? Just make sure you wear something cropped. The better to show them off, my dear.
And when your feet start to hurt from wearing your 4-inch heels, slip on the Noadiah ($79) skimmers in Pewter. The bow detail is adorable - and while I'm a heel fan, who said flats had to be boring? Slip these on with your LBD. In my mind, metallics will never be dead. Pure chic forever.
