Lattice Wrap

I'm all about Yves Saint Laurent these days--- the sky high heels, classic go-to bags. For me, YSL is the epitome of class and sex appeal. In YSL's spring 09 runway collection, cage shoes were all the rage. Metallic and patent leather booties and boots with zip backs along with gladiator sandals graced the model's feet. Even the heels of these shoes are intricately caged. These creations are an architectural gem. I'm calling these the "sexy it shoe" of the season! These shoes allow you to be experimental when dressing up or down-- wear 'em with tailored cropped pants, a power suit, long cascading dresses. I'm most infatuated with the silver gladiators. They have a goddess feel. These styled with a flowing dress is a striking vision. Though these beauties are sadly out of my price-range, I have a feeling I'll be able to find a pair at least a fraction as hot.

  1. They are FANTASTIC! Why do ladies get all of the pretty things, while guys get stuck with bland clunky tired old things.... oh, the sad fate of men.

    I think that these foot traps would look rockin' cool paired with incredibly short tweed shorts, matching tweed vest, and cropped sleeved tweed sports coat. A brightly colored shirt, and complimentary pocket square and you've got yourself an outfit!
