When I first saw these Raoul pumps, I was hesitant about all the different things going on: flaming red and pony hair? Surely not. But since I dress in a uniform of blacks, grays and navys, I figured it couldn’t hurt to amp things up in the accessories department. Plus, the shape is exquisite — very “chic Parisian running out for a baguette” (they do that all the time, right?).
And sure enough, they make even the most boring turtleneck and skinny jeans look like I was styled by Emmanuelle Alt (well, at least in my head — don’t ruin it). Plus the 3-inch height is totally doable for fancy events and parties where there’s a lot of standing around.
