Everywhere I turn lately I am confronted with a pair of slingbacks. Every single OOTD on Instagram features a pair of pointy-toed beauties, every cool girl walking down the street is donning them. Once I decided that I, too, must have them all (because no matter how old I get, my heart’s desire will always be to join the ranks of the cool girls) I started hoarding vintage inspiration photos and stalking EBay.
The slingbacks of decades past are beautiful and lust-inducing, but surprisingly difficult to get my hands on – I blame social media. So I turned to more modern iterations and, well, I must have them all. The good news: I don’t even feel guilty because the Barbie-pink Balenciagas are fifty percent off right now.
