Some look books just don't do fashion justice. When we saw these Fratelli Rossetti Python Open Pumps in Geranium, we were literally unable to concentrate on the preview of the company's Fall collection (the woman who was wearing this gift to fashion was the one showing us around). This sounds silly to say but the color, hard to pick up on in the picture, is truly Geranium. That is, it's red with a slightly coral or orange tint. The woman whom we saw in these heels was wearing a slim black suit and damn if that wasn't the eff-ing right choice. She looked, well, unbelievable. This, indeed, is where the eternal 'look for less' issue comes into play. Without the uncommon color, the real pythonskin, and the craftsmanship of a decades-old Italian shoe company--what are we left with? We're left with blisters and lipstick-red heels that make us look like our outfit is an homage to the movie Pretty Woman. Oh yeah, and the other color option, Cedar, is right on target with Spring's acid green trend.
