1) I were to choose ONE pair of shoes for the fall; and
2) I could actually wear 3-inch heels; and
3) I had $570 burning a hole in my pocket,
THEN I would definitely go for these exquisite pumps from Robert Clergerie. Sure, Clergerie can produce a lot of clunkers (see these blah creations for yourself), but when he gets it right, oh boy, does he make my heart flutter! As in the presence of these chunky heels, which I actually saw in all their glory in a store downtown: smooth, beautiful suede upper, braided leather overlay (available in two colors, amber, shown, and cafe), peep-toe, and overall awesomeness.
And now excuse me as I go drool over them a little bit more.
