WARDROBE STAPLE: THE SPECTATOR

 

 

My new spring shoe purchase (see yesterday's post ) has brought to mind a vintage shoe staple I am determined to add to my wardrobe this spring. 
The classic  Spectator Shoe.  
Preferably in navy & white . . .

While the original spectator style was pretty basic, today's modern designers have put quite a spin on them:

 

I found this lovely pair over at The Preppy Princess but no further information was to be found . . .

 
This delightful pair is already in the closet of some gal with fabulous taste . . . from Dear Golden Vintage .

This jazzy pair is from designer D&G  ~~ The Lucy T Strap for a mere $499.00 . . .

 

 

A lovely offering from the tasteful Marc Jacobs, coming in at $470.00 . . .

 

The epitome of the perfect summer high heel, in my humble opinion . . . while open toe is generally frowned upon, this manages to be elegant & refined ~~ perfect pedicure required . . .   the Nami Air OT Pump on Canvas/Anthracite by NIKE AIR (???!!!)   $295.00 isn't bad if they offer the comfort of a running shoe . . .

From Shoes and Your Mom. . .Salvatore Ferragamos  in the classic style . . . worn once . . . $300.00

40's Vintage Navy and White Wing Tip T-Straps 7N
 
While the modern offerings are intriguing, this beautiful 1940s Johansen vintage pair has won my heart ~~ but not my foot ~~ they're too small.  Available at Max & Chloe Vintage 
for a mere $32.00!!! 
 

Romeo, where art thou?

And yes, we love to see the gentlemen sport them . . .
