Under Lock and Key

You don't always go looking for a new love. Sometimes they just find you. Last fall, I saw these cage boots on the YSL runway and thought they were interesting. But over time they have continued to grow on me and my love for them grew as well. I said I wanted more graphic edgy shoes...

well, I think these fit the bill.

They are even more structural and Eiffel Tower-like than the Jil Sanders heels I was denied.

I. Love. This. Heel.

When they were shown on the runway, they were paired some some amazing classic and artfully draped styles that contrast with the graphic nature of the boot.

I love this. A slouchy dress that you could almost mimic with a big sweatshirt and jersey fabric skirt.

And the simple knit top and pencil skirt in a very class taupe.

If I do get these boots (ohhhh... I'm so tempted!) they will be a great conterpoint to my simple styles.

I love them because, while they're still really bold, they don't take your entire focus down to your feet - they show enough skin to really be a neutral. The perfect "edgy" shoe!

Love these sooooo much!
Your post on the Marie Antoinette shoes inspired me to watch the movie again. Love the colors in that movie.

They're pretty awesome, but potentially blister-inducing. My entire foot would be covered in bandaids!

I adore that last outfit! The classic silhouette + the very new boots = awesome.
