PEEP-TOE PERFECTION

VALENTINO HEELS $745

“It’s pretty hard to resist these Valentino shoes. So elegant, so chic, the nude patent heel is very much all the rage. They would go with just about anything. The lines are exquisite. And they have a bit of a platform, so they give relief to the ball of your foot.”

3401 Dufferin St., 416-789-1812

GARDEN PARTY

DOLCE & GABANNA WEDGES $708

“These would look great with denim, great with a little white sundress, just about anything. You’d get a lot of mileage out of a shoe like this.”

LOAFING AROUND

ECCO LOAFERS $150

“I really like no-nonsense moccasins. These are beautiful quality. And they’re great for just knocking around with a pair of jeans.”
