These Spazzolato Pump by Tabitha Simmons are the perfect balance between wow and practical. There's quite a bit going on there - cutouts, a corset-inspired back, and nice hardware, but the construction is solid and will support the foot and ankle. Like Emma Watson who was just photographed wearing the Spazzolatopumps, I wear black tights with my dresses throughout winter (Anna Wintour wouldn't approve, but I usually have a little more ground to cover than her typical limo-to-door), so this is a dressier alternative to my various knee-high boots. A quick online search shows that these Tabitha Simmons pumps also come (came? Bergdorf doesn't stock them) is burgundy. I could go for that.
