Double-Take: Jimmy Choo Ivette

You can always count on gorgeous, delicate evening shoes from Jimmy Choo. The Ivette sandal (Nordstrom, Saks) particularly stands out because the straps are thoughtfully placed in a way that accentuates the curves of the foot and ankle; the shoe looks very elegant when worn! It’s available in both gold and silver leather with a 3.5″ heel. If you’re looking for something higher, the Lang sandal has the exact same strap construction except with a higher heel. You can find Lang in silver, pink, nude, and neon yellow.


I don’t have much use for evening sandals these days, so I wouldn’t even consider paying the price for a pair of Jimmy Choos. However, if I desperately needed a similar pair, I’d go straight for the Patty sandal. Can you spot the differences? Apart from the coloring and strap thickness, Patty is almost indistinguishable from Ivette. But hurry! She’s selling out fast over at DSW. Check your local store if you can’t find it online; DSW shoephoria customer service is stellar in helping you get what you need.
