Jimmy Choo ‘Fitch’, £650
These shoes sold out very quickly at Net-a-Porter last week, and price-tag aside, it’s not hard to see why: they’re the perfect mixture of “barely there” (i.e. they’ll work with everything) and “look at me”, which is exactly how an evening sandal should be, if you ask me.
If you love these, though, worry not: they’re still available at the Jimmy Choo website, and they’re also available in black. I really love the glittered leather, which is a wonderful effect on an evening shoe: it’s more subtle than ACTUAL glitter, but more special than matte (or even patent) leather. These have a diaphanous feel to them, which would look wonderful with some kind of tulle or lace concoction, and although they’re heart-breakingly expensive, they’re the kind of shoe that will never go out of fashion, so perhaps you can justify them with the fact that you’d be wearing them for years. Perhaps.
I was in shock when I saw this picture – you hardly ever have Jimmy Choos to show us! I love these, they’re just so pretty without being twee. Perhaps glamorous is a better word.
