WHAT: Nicholas Kirkwood Ruffle-Trimmed Suede Pumps
WHY: Think your existing cadre of six-inch heels make an impact purely on grounds of their teetering height? Prepare to reconsider. The addition of pleated grey ruffles, plumed on the half-foot-high Nicholas Kirkwood heels, makes for a decidedly memorable exit view, and the most whimsical yet still sexy gussy-up of a classic (albeit very tall!) black heel we’ve seen in a while.
