Ankle straps for everyone!

By on Jul. 12th

Unleash the Chic Heel in PoppyIf you're looking for comfortable, sturdy wedding shoes — this is not your week. (Might I suggest clicking here?)

This week, I'm going to focus on shoes with those little ankle straps that look so lovely… but can hurt so good if you're not accustomed to walking in point-heeled little devil-pumps.

Yes, there are a few flats and chunkier heels here (like these poppy-colored puppies at left!), but many of these shoes are for advanced heel-walkers only.

Lots of these are vintage-tinged (Seychelles, I can't quit you!), so I know those of you going the slightly old-timey route are going to freak out…
