Regardless, haven't been a fan. But in this new crop I'm seeing a few styles, admittedly still a bit flashy, that I wouldn't mind wearing.
Sexy and not over the top sparkly - Ankle Wrap Shimmer Sandal - $1095
I love a classic pump that has a bit of interesting detail. The glittery edging with cut-outs amps this up from boring black. Glitter Trim Pump - $595
The sandal part of this is pretty simple but that ankle cuff... holy moly! This is not a subtle shoe but what you are investing in for it, you'll save by not having to get other jewelry. Crystal Cuff d'Orsay - $1995
The shoes I'm seeing are swinging back to the conservative side. Are the folks at Choo a bit gun shy from all the craziness we've seen and they they gone through lately (mass-merchandising partnership, sale, etc.). Did they tone it down as they regroup are are they trying to get back to basics before going a new direction?
Time will tell. In the meantime, I'm still not dying for any of them but they're much better than before.
