My Favorite Strap-Ons

Everyone goes through phases occasionally on the kind of shoes they find themselves gravitating towards. The holidays tend to bring out the glam in me, with embarrassing amounts of sequins and sparkles. The summer, for most, brings out the strappy sandals, flip flops and fun wooden wedges. perfect for walking the boardwalk and taking in some vacation shopping.

As of late, I have been flocking the racks of high heeled ankle strapped shoes.  The following are a few of my favorites from Heels.com…and my thinly veiled attempt to use a double entendre in my subject line.  So clever.

This fabulous Not Rated Pin Wheel T- Strap in red immediately caught my attention. Enough of a statement on its own, it can be worn with a clean red dress, a simple white skirt and tank, or even with skinny jeans and a funky graphic tee.

For the working girl, the Corso Como Doll Wedge above is a classy and chic alternative to the regular old black pump we all have taking up space on the floor of the closet. The small amount of detail around the ankle steps it up a notch, making it acceptable under dress pants, but even more eye-catching with a flirtatious, yet still professional skirt. If you’re looking good, you’re performing even better. Saunter those files and reports into your boss’ office in unprecedented style.

Now if you and your girls are going out on the town to shake what your mama gave you and close down every last bar in town, this Chinese Laundry Baldwin Heel might wreak just the right amount of havoc you’ve been jonesing for all week, chained to your bland cubicle. The hot, metallic color screams “princess” and the jewels on the buckle enclosure take the place of a regularly tacky tiara.

The ankle strap, on any shoe, whether you’re punching in at work or painting the town red, offer the tiniest hint of suggestive sensuality without being trashy. Adding a pair of ankle strapped heels gently implies a glimpse of innocence and flirtatiousness to your wardrobe and personality. Try one of the options above, or experiment on your own!
