There is nothing more flattering than a D’Orsay heel.

The possibilities are endless.

A pair of black or nude stilettos are the perfect choice for your first pair, but if you’re looking for something a bit more special you can add a pop of color‑ think Valentino pink or orange or something that really catches the eye.
