Shoes-day: Collection Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps

I was looking for a black shoe for parties and dressier events and decided on the Collection Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps. They were not my first choice. I really wanted the Collection Etta in Tweed and Glitter but someone snatched my size from my bag before I could checkout during the Thanksgiving weekend 30% off. SadBella

I ordered my normal size 7. They are a bit retro and not quite my style but I actually like them. I forgot they were velvet until after I received them.

They have gold trim around the straps and shoe.

The heel is 3 1/2 inches and at first try-on feel comfortable. That’s about my comfort height without a platform.

I will be wearing these tonight with some black tights and some sort of J Crew party outfit so look for that Que Bella next week.

I’m glad I now have a pair of black party heels, though they are more Fall/Winter only due to the Velvet.

Have you tried the Sloan Pumps in this Velvet Crisscross or any of the others?

    I was looking at them for my Gatsby party outfit (the one that Ibposted on Insta) they would have been perfect with my dress (blanch and gold beading). But I have the velvet t-straps from a few years ago so I guess these would be a bit redondant (but I will snag them if they go supercheap). I agree, everybody needs at least one pair of black party shoes.
