There’s no denying it—summer is coming to an end. Luckily, fall’s cooler temps mark the beginning of the best fashion season, and the welcome reintroduction of closed toe shoes. When I first laid eyes on these Giuseppe Zanotti spiked ballet flats, it was love at first sight. The luxe creamy leather is juxtaposed with an edgy captoe – an unexpected twist on a classically
ladylike shoe. I dream of pairing mine with jet-black cigarette pants and an ultra-fem silk-crepe cream blouse- the perfect harmony between lady and vamp.
