10th Commandment: October 15


Sixties T-Bar Heels (Boden, $149)

I spotted these berry-colored heels in Real Simple a couple of months ago and just fell in love with them.  They are the perfect mix of menswear-inspired chic and understated femininity.  And the color…Lord knows, I love berry-hued anything.  (Except Uggs.  Nothing can fix Uggs.)  They also come in black patent.

The menswear trend has popped up a few times over the life of this blog.  It creeps into blazer cuts and accessories.  But last time, the powers that be at Vogue were asking me to wear brogues and high-heel loafers, and I just refused.  So these t-strap, mid-heel pumps are a much more approachable way to inject a bit of Marlene Dietrich into my attire.

If you like the t-strap look but prefer something in a higher heel, these Sole Society pumps can get the job done for $50.  I also adore these metallic and black pumps from Rachel Zoe.  These Aldo Kveta pumps also come in pewter, black and patent.

    Hate to do this, but it’s except not accept. Accept uggs would mean you want us to embrace them, and I know you don’t mean that! 😉
