Basic Black

Just before Christmas I realized that I don't have a good, basic pair of black heels. Impossible, right? And so began the search...

If I had my pick I would have bought the Kate Spade Karolina, which I already own in nude. But, at $298, they cost a bit more than I want to spend right now.

So, back to the search...Piperlime had a 20% off sale last week, so it was perfect timing. Here are a few of the shoes I considered.

Enzo Angiolini Smiles $99

Bandolino Eladia 3 $69

And here's what I settled on...The Vince Camuto Zella $98. What do you think?


  1. Just went through the same thing and ended up buying some totally impractical sky-high Cole Haan's (4 1/2 inch heels). They're fun though! I like your pick:)

  2. I absolutely love the ones you chose. I think I would have gone for the Enzos - I love a pretty platform. Come to think of it, my plain black pumps should really be replaced... Let the search begin!

  3. I want those Kate Spades so badly! Thanks for this post I'm in desperate need of cute comfortable affordable work heels

  4. How did the heels work out? I don't have a good black pair either (crazy, huh?) and want to get some that will last, but I don't want to spend much more than $100.

  5. Haley, they are great! Just the perfect amount of platform and not too high of a heel.
