Come to mama, Prada.
Prada T-Strap Metallic Sandals, $720 via Neiman Marcus.
Yes, this will do just fine. I’ll take a pair of the Prada T-Strap Metallic Sandals in a size 39, please.
Sometimes you see a shoe and you just know. That’s the feeling that I got with this pair. I generally shy away from buying solid black because I don’t work in an environment that necessitates it and my personal style leans heavily on left-of-center accessories, and this combination of soft black suede and mirrored silver patent is just the kind of take on a basic black shoe that makes me swoon.
In my mind, this can be worn almost any time a dark neutral heel would be required, unless you’re going to court or something. If you’re going to court, maybe try a pair of black flats! But other than that, choosing a shoe like this one instead of something more obvious is a great way to tweak your outfit ever-so-slightly but add all kinds of personality. When you see a woman who seems to be dressed really well but you can’t put your finger on why exactly she looks so much more special compared to everyone else, it’s probably because she’s learned how to use these sort of subtle differences to her advantage. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $720.
