Pointy Toe

Shoe of the Day: Simply Sharp


A great pump always makes any outfit look sharp and sophisticated. I love these by Kurt Geiger for the slim profile, needle-thin heel, and low vamp. The Ellen reminds me of these gorgeous but elusive Sergio Rossi pumps at DSW. Although I already have a beautiful pair of classic black pumps from Vince Camuto, these are begging to join the others in my closet…I’ll be keeping an eye on the price!

Tuesday Shoesday: Simply Black


Finding the perfect black pumps that go with everything is probably the hardest thing to do. For a while, I thought I was being too specific with what I wanted: straight heel, black suede, pointy toe with a hint of toe cleavage, and a walkable heel height. Ideally, I’d love a pair of Manolo Blahnik BB pumps. But alas, they don’t fit in my budget, so I had to look for something else. It took me quite some time (probably about a year!) to find a pair that had everything I was looking for and wouldn’t break the bank. I finally found this pair online. I debated purchasing them for a couple weeks. When I got an email with a 25% off discount code, I took the plunge and bought them. I’m so glad I did, because they ended up being exactly what I was looking for!

The Kain pump from Vince Camuto has a beautiful shape with a perfectly straight 4″ heel and a pointed toe that doesn’t squeeze. I did have to insert ball-of-foot cushions because the single sole is pretty thin, but after I did that, they’re extremely comfortable for a day at the office. The quality is great, and if I could, I’d get the style in many other colors as well!
