T-strap shoes. Another fact: I love studded shoes. So, you can pretty much guarantee I'll love studded T-strap shoes like these Schutz Fiona pumps. I buy a new pair of black pumps every fall, and while on one hand they can be kind of mundane and necessary, it's details like the faceted gold studs that give these lovelies some personality—and that also let me justify buying them. Well, they are different than anything else I own! They have a small covered platform that will help me transition out of chunky-clunky and into the more ladylike shapes for fall. Plus, the heel clocks in just under four inches, which makes them Cheryl Shops–approved for city life. As for who created such a beauteous pair of shoes, Schutz is a Brazilian brand that's fairly new to the U.S.; they offer very trend-conscious footwear at very reasonable prices (most styles are under $200), so expect to see a lot more of them here, or at their new store at 655 Madison Avenue (at 60th Street).
