Not bad, the only ones I kinda like are the Jessica Simpson ones. Kim looks JUST like her mom here. For a quick second I thought it was her!

Love that. Wish NY would offer reviews so you could see how people feel it fits.

I like the Dolce Vita ones best because the don't over take the whole foot. I do like the look of them though.

Depends of the style of the shoe. Kim pulls them off!

Love this trend. I'd totally wear the Dolce Vitas. Pour La Victoire has a yellow pair out that I'm totally crushing on (and praying they go on sale via shopstyle!)

I like the Chinese Laundry ones! I think this style is very sexy, so it looks best when you just give into the sexy vibe and have a stiletto heel, versus trying to be a flat or a wedge.

So literally after I read and commented on this, I went to get ready and couldn't decide what shoes to wear. So I grabbed a pair I haven't worn in about a year and was like oh wow, these don't have a tongue this is just like BB's post! I got them a year or so ago from Plato's closet they are Isaac Mizrahi for Target and never really noticed what was so different about them..they don't have a tongue. LOL

Jesus, her hair is ridiculous. I want!!

On topic :o)-- I don't know if I like laces or loops sticking out of a high heel. They always look a little sloppy on me. (Maybe I just tie weird?)
