Call me old-fashioned, but the nostalgic charm of shoe clips really appeals to me. In this world of fast fashion and mass-produced masses of everything, there's something deeply romantic about the notion of investing in one pair of basic leather shoes and buying inexpensive shoe clips to add glamour and achieve different looks. If I were to do the same thing today, I'd splurge on these Chie Mihara 'Delicia' open-toed pumps ($360)--classic yet funky with that thick platform sole, feminine, and well-made. Then I'd buy the jeweled mesh shoe clips ($6.80) and zipper swirl shoe clips ($6.80) from Forever 21 for those times when I want fancier feet.
Would you ever wear shoe clips?
