Come spring, a young (and happily single) San Francisco woman’s fancy turns to thoughts of cute boys and the shoes with which to snag them. These are my choice for a very festive GNO (girls’ night out) in the big city: Nanette Lepore’s tumbled metallic leather Savage Lover stilettos, $375, with a ruffle front and stacked 4” inch heel. I spotted them on display at Bloomies. Um, hello savage lover.
Do men really like ruffles? Who knows. Who cares. If you’re headed to the hot spots, think Zare at Fly Trap or Gitane, you must prepare to stand for long periods of time at the bar. Men who give up a seat are few and far between near the Golden Gate, so if you’re prone to all the blood rushing to your feet (translation: bulging veins), these are a savvy choice since the strategically placed ruffle camouflages whatever funk (vericose veins, self-tanner streaks?) you’ve got going on. And you should see the sweet little swing they put in your hips.
