I’m not really shoe crazy, but every once in a while, there is a shoe that captures my eye because it is so beautiful, it’s like a work of art.  Last summer, it was Yves Saint Laurent’s sculptural wedge. This season, Gucci has given us two gorgeous shoes to drool over.  This exquisite gold and black suede heel would be perfect for all your formal occasions (and who cares what you wear on top – everyone will be staring at your shoes):

The shiny, spiked heel, the peep-toe and the delicate gold ankle strap – all so elegant and feminine.

Even the name of the shoe is pretty – the Delphine.

Or this sporty flat sandal.

It wouldn’t matter where I wore them (most likely to a parent/teacher conference or a swim meet), I know that, in my mind, those shoes and I would be lounging on the island of Corfu, in the shade of the Bougainvillea, gin and tonic firmly in hand.

And that’s the power of a good pair of shoes.

    Ann- if you’re able to survive more than 30 minutes in the Delphine, then you obviously didn’t inherit the family bunions that I’ve got 🙂 I’ll be reduced to admiring them from afar….so lovely!

    Don’t you think you could bear the pain, by looking down at these pretty shoes on your feet? And, by keeping a pair of flats in your purse, to put on as soon as you leave whatever event you wear them to?
