On Point


(image from tales of endearment)

As much as I like to pretend that I am immune to trends they do sneak up on me. For example, the other week at our Pico store I was drawn to canvas heels by the Swedish brand Cheap Monday. I slipped on the shoes and something about them felt unique and modern yet familiar and suddenly it dawned on me that they were an almost perfect copy of the pointed-toe-square-heeled shoes from the Céline A/W 12′ show. While I try to avoid “fakes” and copies I just couldn’t resist the architectural shape of the heels.


Aren’t they elegant?



The “D’Orsay” is another commonly imitated style of pointed shoes. The original design was created by LA based designer, Jenni Kayne. I spotted this satin version at our Veteran store last week. They can now be purchased online on our Ebay store.

Lastly some true originals! YSL pointed toe booties
