Mules are not really my thing. I can’t help but relate the style of shoe to early episodes of Sex in the City where the characters have questionable and (in my opinion) frumpy wardrobes. So it’s pretty strange that I fell for these Italian made vintage mules at the Van Nuys store. This exceptionally chic pair of suede mules brings to mind Jodie Foster’s character in “Taxi Driver” and Heather Graham and Julianne Moore’s characters in “Boogie Nights”. Something about them is very 70’s “pool-side” worthy to me, picture a big floppy hat , a long chiffon skirt , and “wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am” attitude.
