Obsession of the Day: Jimmy Choo Lace Glitter Mary Jane Pumps

After watching a ton of gowns come cascading down the red carpet, I’m still reeling from all things glittery and sparkling…

Actually, scratch that. I’m kind of like a hamster: I’m attracted to almost ALL things glittery and sparkling. I even drink seltzer water because tap water isn’t pretty enough for me. Who am I kidding? I’m addicted to glamour.

Hence, I adore this lovely shoe from one of my favorite luxury lines, Jimmy Choo. I actually have the clutch that compliments these shoes and I’m considering making it a match set. The lace glitter comes off almost like shimmering snakeskin until you view it very closely, which is impossibly gorgeous and edgy at the same time. The Mary Jane shape is a classic shoe that has a ton of stability (racing for a cab has its dangers) without looking dated or old. Love the small platform as well.

Where would you wear it? This shoe is crying for a pedestal, meaning that you’ll want to be perched somewhere people will see it. Any nightspot with a tall stool at the bar will do for maximum viewing. Perhaps paired with a slinky black dress or maybe a chic skirt and leather jacket combination. I might also suggest gallery openings, rooftop cocktail functions (the weather is warming up) or – dare I say it? – an upcoming wedding.

Classic style with a modern glamorous dash of boom-boom-pow. Yep, I’m in love and definitely obsessed.
