I have been posting my Shoe of the Day over on the Shoe Daydreams Facebook page for a while now but I'm adding it here too.
Today's Shoe is the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute peep-toe slingback.
This shoe came out at the same time as the platform Tribute mary jane that everyone seemed to have and still continues to be evolved in sandal and other pump iterations.
I loved the contrast heel but didn't want the platform. I thought the non-platform slingback was more elegant.
Contrast heels are pretty common now but this shoe had one other unique element - the petal peep-toe. While most peep-toes are a round cut-out this shoe began with two petals forming the less-conspicuous window. The shape has been utilized by McQueen (and copied by numerous others!)
I'm wearing these with a black v-neck cardigan and a Michael Kors leopard print skirt.
