I'm happy to say that I now have my very own pair of mirrored silver kitten heels, and I love them. They are the Giggle Shimmer kitten heeled leather pumps by Chinese Laundry, and they were about $35 at the time. Leading up to this purchase, I had been seeing a lot of mirrored silver shoes in the Fall / Winter magazines, and all over the blogosphere. Thinking that this would be something that I would be looking into, I even took a few snaps from various publications with my iPhone and kept them for inspiration. I believe these are from Vogue USA and Elle UK.
I think that $30 is a pretty good price to pay for something rather trendy, although it could be argued that these are really actually more classic than one might think when considering a bright silver mirrored pump. I love that lower heels are chic again, and the resurgence of pointed toes also makes me happy. I can now dig out my bootcut and trouser jeans and they look relevant again; paired with a pointed toe, the leg is instantly elongated. It's a win-win. And a shockingly silver shoe is a great way to add interest to an everyday kind of look without looking like you're trying too hard.
