Those of you who are fashionably-informed have probably been yawning at my last three spring trends. Pleats, peplums—you’ve read about it on your favorite style blogs already.

Well, here’s one you haven’t read about. I’ve actually looked and looked, and as far as I know, no one else is talking about this one.

Notice that these shoes have a single strap around the ankle and a single strap around the toes. They can have a skinny high-heel, as shown at Givenchy, Giambattista Valli, and Pucci:

Yes… On other blogs you’ll read about the colors to buy (white or sorbet), the must-have details (shiny metallic), the best embellishments (florals), and the hottest motifs (tribal), but you read about this trend first on mojansami.com. Zing!
