Some news on the Saint Laurent cat booties….!

Do you remember how much I started to adored the Saint Laurent cat booties in simple black calf leather back in January when I first saw them on Emmanuelle Alt during the Couture collections in the street style pictures? I always felt that they have such a great design of Victorian lace up shoe meets 60ies style. And due to the flat heel they seemed so comfortable and versatile. My love for the shoe continued to grow when I saw Emmanuelle Alt as well as Carine Roitfeld wearing those shoes during the fall 2014 collections.
