Lust List: Practically Impractical

DSC_0084

Sometimes a pair of shoes will come into your life that are so wonderfully impractical that they come full circle to become practical again.  These Kate Spade Go Taxi Flats from its Monaco collection are exactly that.  They’re decked out to look like your typical cab: yellow as the sun with checkered trim.  There are even little wheels on the side!

Now as fantastically darling as these babies are, I obviously wanted to actually be able to wear them with my current wardrobe before pulling the trigger.  Truthfully, I’m not a yellow person and don’t own much in the way of yellow, so no matchy matchy outfits were in order.  That’s fine with me.  Color, though, I have plenty of hanging in the closet.  With funky flats like these, I think you should just go all out and wear more color!

They’re surprisingly easy to wear but just make sure you’re not in a hurry because you will be stopped by people for complements and photos.  Seriously!  People just can’t help themselves around these adorable flats!  Oh, and a crucial side note, they’re actually comfortable!  I can wear them all day and not feel the need to kick them off immediately when I get home!  I’m in love…

Brand Alert: United Nude

Sandra Shoes

United Nude is by no means new but it was recently brought to my attention by my fashion loving doppelganger (really, I’m her doppelganger), Sandra Espinet.  I’ve mentioned her before because of her fantastic taste in shoes (and let’s be honest here… her taste in everything style!) but I’m so excited about United Nude.  These shoes are art people.  I mean, look at these babies!  And get this… Sandra says she wore these all over a furniture show in North Carolina, did a speech, then continued on to an Architectural Digest party and was COMFORTABLE!  Just add in how amazingly unique this line of shoes is and I’m now officially swooning.  Anything from this brand is on my Christmas wish list for sure.  *hint hint*
