Casadei pointed-toe pump | 120mm/4.7″ heel | shop at ShoeScribe for $690

Hologram had its moment throughout last year but it’s back to metallics this spring. This shiny hue of my affection is on all of  favorite accessories including iPhones, nail polish, bags and footwear. These signature Blade pumps by Cesare Casadei feature mirrored rose gold leather, sleek pointed-toe, lacquered sculpted steel stiletto heel and metallic leather insole.

I love rose gold for every skin tone but it’s also carried in traditional yellow gold. Half sizes are available.
