“Now, Love is red, and Wisdom pale, But human hearts are faint and frail; Till Love meets Love, and bids it hail. I see the chasm, yawning dread; I see the flaming arch o’erhead: I stake my life upon the red.” (Julia Ward Howe)
I have been in search of the “perfect” red pump for quite a while now. My personal definition of the perfect red pump is one that is comfortable, stylish, the right shade of red, and has a manageable heel height. A couple of weeks ago, I was at Macy’s and saw these gorgeous red pumps but they were $79.50 which was not in my budget at that time. I am so glad I waited as these very same pumps were recently on sale for 50% off for $39.75! These shoes are by Giani Bernini and have a memory foam insole with extra cushion at the heel and arch support for added comfort. They have a soft suede and patent gloss which makes them look sway chic. The footbed feels extra “squishy,” and the color is called “true red.” They are versatile in the sense that you can wear them to work or for a night out. Now I want to test them for both scenarios. It is such a FUN shoe! I have a passion for red as seen in this post The Color Red.The long gray sweater coat is by Adrienne Vittadini and is so warm, cozy and stretchy. I cannot wait to wear this on a cold, winter day with skinny jeans and black leather boots. My pencil skirt is by Talbots and is fully lined. It is a classic look with a black and white houndstooth check pattern. It was $13.50 thrifted.I just love my new red pumps. What do you think of them? Mabel smiles in approval…maybe she’s secretly thinking of running off with them when I’m not looking.
