Mary Jane Grows Up!

If you think Mary Jane shoes are just a fond vintage memory, think again!

This fall’s chic Mary Janes are taller and more confident than the demure styles of years ago.

Whether you opt for a medium heel or sky-high pumps, you’ll find them embellished with patent leather in all colors, metallic elements and even flower petals.

I did a little window shopping at Saks, and here are two of my faves…the Marni Mary Janes resemble the original mid-century styles, but the sophisticated heel and the splash of red make them especially adorable and flirty. The Pradas are decorated with flower blossoms, and the shape of the shoe is a fresh take on the beloved classic.

Send me an image of your favorite Mary Janes (old or new), and I will share it with our readers. You can always reach me at [email protected]

Happy shopping,
