Nine West 'Today' Shoe

Longtime readers of my blog have probably figured out by now that I'm a huge sucker for bows, buttons, and buckles as adornments on shoes. And in case you haven't, well, I'm telling you now. This 'Today' shoe by Nine West caught my eye for three reasons:

  1. The pretty black bow on the toe is ornate and girly, and is adorned by the sweetest little jewel.
  2. The shoe is pointy-toed. I have a bit of an obsession with pointy-toed flats that stretches back to the Ralph Lauren tweed flats I found at the A&N shoe sale and the black quilted patent Steve Maddens I found at Sterling. My most current pointy-toed flat obsession is a pair from Burberry's fall collection. Apparently, though, I'm not the only one obsessed: the August issue of Lucky magazine devoted three pages to this type of shoe.
  3. It's on sale for $50 on the Canadian Nine West website!
Unfortunately, my shopping sabbatical forbids me from buying clothes and accessories until the end of September at least. Please, one of you, give these shoes a good home so I can live through you vicariously.


  1. Ooh these shoes are gorgeous! I love that soft ivory colour, and the bow makes it look like it's a wrapped present!

  2. I love love details up the shoes and i remind when i went with my grandmother in some artisanal shops when ladies were used to buy ornaments and details for shoes.

  3. Alice: Vintage shoe clips are such a treasure. I've seen pics of the ones other bloggers snag off of eBay and wish people would start making them again. I suppose shoe clips made more sense back in the days when people spent a lot on one simple, well-fitting pair of quality shoes and wanted to change up the look of the shoe.
