Making a Point

I'm a heel lover at heart, but admittedly, round-toe flats have started to overrun my shoe closet. They're so darn comfortable and easy to throw on!

But during my outings this past weekend, I happened to pick up two new pairs of pointy-toe pumps that are taking it back to my stiletto roots.

The "Nolita" pump from the Prabal Gurung for Target Collection is a great price at only $39. You can pair it with jeans, an LBD, or with a bold-colored pencil skirt, like I did above. Thanks to The Mr. for picking up the tab on these!

And I couldn't pass up this pair of cranberry colored suede pumps on the sales table at Banana Republic (on sale in-store with an additional 35% off!). I happened to wear them Saturday night with my Forever 21 faux leather pants, but they're just as stylish with your favorite skinny jeans or, for the more adventurous, cute pair of sequin shorts!

Which pump style do you prefer: pointy-toe or round? Leave a comment for me below!

  1. Looking through my closet, it looks like I always go for peep-toe pumps... which means I need to add more round AND pointy toe shoes! Quick question: How do the tops of the BR pumps feel/fit? The cut of some pumps rub in a weird way when walking, and I've always wondered how Banana shoes fare in that area. Thanks!

    1. I know what you mean. This is my first pair of BR pumps, and so far, they fit comfortably in the toe area and the heel. They are cut just a wee bit narrow, so if you are used to wearing a shoe with a wider toe box, it might not be the best bet. But it does give what I like to call "toe cleavage"! Weird, I know.

    2. Thanks! I'll have to give BR a look :-)

  2. Do you know that those Prabal Gurung shoes are sold out in size 10? Wow! 24 hours.

    1. Really? WOW! Did you check your local store?

    2. I went to my local Target today and could not find them at all. #SadFace
