Recessionista: Sparkle

I love, love, love this shiny open-toe platformed pump from Piperlime and Chinese Laundry.

Sometimes it's just great to have the sparkle on my feet and leave the rest solid and simple. I love this with jeans, with a pencil skirt or with a nice slimming dress.

This $80 LadyBug shoe has black and silver -- mixed! -- sequins. The heel height is not unwalkable, so no fear that you're going to have to slip into another pair of shoes after a few steps in these! Plus, I also like the fact that a sparkled, sequined pump can live on forever. After all, when have you heard of sequins going out of style?
