Last week we got to meet Skye McAlpine, an English mom based in Venice, who has a lovely blog From My Dining Table, and the most inspiring Instagram @skye_mcalpine. But getting to the point of the post, she was wearing the cutest shoes, a kitty shoe by Charlotte Olympia, that were just so cheery…and substantial, even though they were velvet! Most slipper style shoes seem too delicate to wear out as a daytime shoe, but these had a solid base, and a lovely gold heel (low heel!). They seem like a shoe that could go from day to night no problem. This means that the price per wear is good, which is necessary to justify, seeing as how they start at $495.
