Once upon a time someone (I don’t remember who) sent me a link to a Kate Spade sample sale. I’m pretty sure this was back in the days of the infamous black nylon bag. That link lead to my first Kate Spade handbag purchase. Unfortunately for my (Kate Spade) wallet, the sample sale was just a gateway drug when it came to Ms. Spade. I have since moved on to normal sales. And, occasionally, full-priced purchases. These little zebra beauties were one such purchase (in the interest of full disclosure, TD actually bought these. For me. Not him. Seriously come on…we don’t even wear the same size). At about two inches, the heel is a perfect height for trousers or shorter shirts with tights. I also love the mid-century toe paired with the chunkier heel. I think they kind of send the message that,’ yes, I’m ladylike but could run a 440 if needed.’ Nice.
