item of the day: glitter flats

my page turning stopped dead when i spotted these in the october nordstrom catalog. i normally don't go in for the glittery shoes, but i absolutely love the color of these...it's just subtle enough to let the glitter do the talking (unlike, say, red glitter shoes, where you really just don't know where to start). this picture just doesn't do justice - they're a much smokier grey, almost black, in real life. i'm thinking for a holiday party, with some of those black 'audrey' pants from the gap, or maybe even velvet, they'd be pretty darn fabulous.

and i was even more shocked to discover that these are by michael by michael kors, a line i nearly always associate with neutral colors and classic (read: occasionally bland) styles. hurray for michael...he's finally stepping out of his box a little. let's give him a helping hand by picking up a pair of these while they're still here (and only $108 at nordstrom, who is also offering free shipping on all shoes right now). trust me when i tell you the picture doesn't do them justice....they're positively darling in person. they also come in a great chocolate/bronze color....but i just love this gunmetal grey.

happy shopping!
