There are fashion items that make you swoon with delight, giggle with pleasure or squeal like a schoolgirl. Then, there are items that can actually cause you to fall into prayer.
This whipstitch bootie from my beloved Alexander Wang is one such item…as in, I felt the urge to drop to my knees in reverence for such a shoe. Wang always puts some of the most unexpected items out there when it comes to accessories that fulfill a need you didn’t know you had but you desperately want to fill it with his items once you know about it.
The rich burnt brick color, the wrinkled patent-leather, lace-up tie that wraps around the ankle. Can we just talk about the whipstitching, the cuffed suede overlay….the OPEN TOE?!? These impossibly chic shoes would look amazing under tights and a great layered look for the rest of winter, then transition into the warmth of spring with a pretty printed dress or 70’s light denim with a long sweater.
Yep, I need ’em and so do you.
