10th Commandment: February 12


Zara Kitten Heel Shoes with Bow ($70)

I don’t like bows.  More to the point, I don’t like the flimsy bows they sometimes put on ballet flats or the ostentatious Christmas-package bows that they put on high heels.  But I do like sleek bows with clean lines, like the bow on the shoe above.

I also like the look of kitten heels.  They can be worn under trousers as an alternative to heels or flat, and I like the vintage look of kitten heels with a pencil skirt.  I like the chic embellishments on these DKNY heels (good for daytime or evening), and these black and white snakeskin-like heels from Topshop.

Need something under-$50?  I found these black patent kitten heels from Target and these D’orsay-style kitten heels.

    I don’t like the flimsy string bows on ballet flats either- I think they look silly and cheap. I found these https://www.6pm.com/ivanka-trump-walker-new-nocciola-mc-beige-soho that are similar to the Zara pair too!

    is the fabric on the zara shoes too satin-y for work? I can’t tell if they’re shiny or not. Love the structure though.

    Kate Spade does some nice, simple bows sometimes. I love their Lilia Heels, although I can’t afford them!
