Why do I love kitten heels so much? Well, apart from the obvious very chic frenchy status; Audrey Hepburn; early to mid 60's vibe... they are so comfortable and very smart.
And then I saw Emmanuelle Alt during fashion week... need I say more!
Begone you horrid platform heels, ... and enter the slick, chic, and utterly ladylike kitten heel. Sure a slim stiletto will catch my eye from time to time, but reality is, stiletto's are just 'dinner' shoes... you know the ones, teeter over to a dinner table, sit down and then take them off when no-one is watching. But kitten heels... look cool with jeans, capris, pencil skirts, full skirts, under capes and trench coats, with a summery strappy dress and Raybans. Add a slingback and ooh la la!
Yep, they win me over every-time!
