Embellished Trend Savings

Because our office sits above the big new Zara in midtown, I've been head-turning at these for a couple days:















Do I love? Yes, and yes they are on 34th Street. They are a little pricey for my current needs ($139), but they do fulfill many of Spring's shoe trends: towering heels, beaded laces hanging round waiting to trip you up, and "ethnic-inspired."* All that in one shoe, so perhaps they are actually a bargain?

And what's that behind trendy, ethnic-embellished sandal, you ask?













Trendy, yellow, sandal-boot thing. Jeffrey loves it, but when I told him I was on the fence, he admitted the ankle area might be awkward. Try them on and see, but the color is very good if you don't have pasty white legs till mid-July.






Next week, some Zara spring offerings straight from the 34th Street dressing room.

Zara, 39 W. 34th Street between 5th & 6th
