Found my cap-toe

I'm so happy that I am checking-off items on my 2012 wish list! One of the items I've been longing for is some pointy cap-toe shoes. Finally found mine on Amazon for only $30! I wish they have more sizes available if you ladies are interested in them, but there are only random sizes left here or here.

Franco Sarto Rich-Burro/Black
The outer beige part is made of leather that is very soft to the touch, but sturdy on the inside. Patent cap toe is man-made.
I ordered size 5.5 M with my fingers crossed (since I'm normally a true size 6). Luckily, they fit fine. A little pinchy in the toes, which is expected since they are pointy-shaped, and a little stiff on the back of the ankles....but I think overtime, they will loosen a bit to be more comfortable. 

Evidently, the black cap-toe is an oldie fashion hit. Found this picture of  Jean Shrimpton looking very modern in the 1960's?

Glad you got two items off your list! Those flats are a great neutral! And, of course, loving the coral necklace!

I did just get a couple summer items on my mental wishlist. :) I did a major closet cleaning, so it helped me see what I felt I was lacking.

Have a nice week, Olyvia! :)

Ooo love the color of your necklace. It's such a pretty color that will match a variety of outfits. Looking forward to seeing the two in future posts :)

Yay for getting 2 items from your wish list! Both look fab on you! I'm still pondering the cap toe. It's oh so pretty but I have weird feet and finding comfy shoes for them are a nightmare.

Michelle and PLG, yay for checking off some stuff on your wishlist :) It sure feels like a mission is accomplished and I'm a bit happier on my happy level, haha.

CFP, you will definitely be seeing more of this necklace. I've worn it twice this week already, so versatile indeed!

SPG, truthfully these pointy cap-toes are probably one of the most uncomfortable shoes in my collection. Perhaps a round-toe style would be better for comfort. I'm only wearing these to 1-2 hour events as statement shoes ;) If you ever find a comfy cute cap-toe, grab 'em, haha.
