At the beginning of every season, there’s always one shoe that captures my heart and instantly becomes an obsession until I successfully acquire them. The last few seasons, they’ve been the Alexander McQueen winged booties and Charlotte Olympia “Banana Is My Business” pumps; each of these pairs of shoes still make my heart go pitter-patter every time I take them out for a spin, so I know I done did good with those purchases.
This Fall, a shoe had yet to take that top spot on my accessories wish list, though there had been some serious contenders. I’ve been coveting the Nicholas Kirkwood for Erdem velvet platform pumps and the YSL python Tribute sandals with snake ornaments for sure, but neither of these has had the effect of turning me into an online shoe stalker.
This weekend, however, I finally stumbled upon the shoes of my dreams (for right now), and they are fierce, ladies and gents. Everyone, meet Balenciaga‘s to-die-for, straight off the Fall 2011 runway pumps. The ultra-pointy toe, the skinny stiletto heel, the contrast ankle cuff…these babies couldn’t be more up my alley. They also couldn’t be further from my closet right now, but I’m already styling outfits in my head.
What’s your dream shoe for Fall?
