So, since I didn't want to spend $450 on a shoe that is a trend I'm not sure will stay around, I set about trying to find something equally cute, but less stressful on my wallet. Here are a few I like:
Via Spiga "Valencia"
Dolce Vita "Agusta"
Jeffrey Campbell "Smitty"
Ivanka Trump "Loire"
I haven't tried on the others but I did try on the Ivanka Trump in the leopard at Nordstrom today and it was so comfortable. I don't know if that's true of all d'orsay, or if it's just this shoe, but it was very, very wearable. Very soft leather and no rubbing in any of the wrong places that can often happen with flats. I could see myself walking in it all day, no problem. Guess I just might have to go back to Nordie's this weekend and treat myself! (And for those of you who are interested, it also comes in black and gold)......
