If you watched last night's People's Choice Awards, you probably noticed the killer - pointy-toe - heels. Squeal!!! This trend is really happening for 2013 and I can't tell you how much it excites me. I've long been a fan of the ol' pointy toe, and happen to notice they always get the most "I like your shoes" compliments. Why? Because they're way flattering. Much more so than a rounded toe, which can just make your legs appear slightly thicker and shorter (although I don't shun the rounded toe, by any means).
When I saw these pointy ankle strap d'Orsay versions from Monika Chiang, I cried tears of joy. These may not be life-changing (um, or yes?), but they're closet-changing, for sure. I already have a spot waiting for them. They're $395 and every freaking celeb owns a pair, duh. Think Mena Suvari, Karolina Kurkova, Ashley Benson, Selita Ebanks and Kourtney Kardashian, to name a few.
Pair these beauties with skinny jeans if you must, but to reallllly show off that ankle strap, I highly rec a skirt or dress. Black, blue (my fav), silver or gold, these are the hottest heels around. Girls, rejoice. This shoe trend is gonna transform every plain Jane outfit you own. Trust. Me.
P.S. A couple of years ago, I had the amazing opp to meet Monika at Lincoln Center while I was in New York. The designer gave me a personal tour of her current collection at the time, including shoes (!), and I've been obsessed ever since (she's sweet as pie, too).
