In honor of Book Lovers Day, we’re paying homage to this year’s smash hit novel by sharing a few scandalous tidbits about our favorite shoes and handbags that come in various shades of gray. In all fairness, I have yet to read the book of the same name, though it’s currently sitting on my nightstand waiting for me to finish The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. The former I borrowed from my co-worker; the latter my BFF. But if things do get too steamy for your taste, you can always stop and grab a copy of Little Women (or some other conservative classic).
It’s no secret around the warehouse that Shara likes it rough. Her faux shearling cuff keeps her warm on cold nights when she’s alone, but the buckle details indicate that she’s not afraid to step up and show you who’s boss. Guys are attracted to her sexy, sleek shaft, but you’ll become obsessed with her kitten heel. It gives you just enough height to stand up to your man but not over him.
Get closer with Kym. This sultry ankle boot hits the right spot (on your leg) to grab his attention – even tease him a little. But don’t be fooled; she may look sweet and sensible form the front, but the surprise stitching details on the back prove that she’s not as innocent as you think. You’ll often find her in the throes of passion with her man or someone else’s. Thank fully her dual side zippers ensure easy off and on – so you’re never faced with a Cinderella dilemma.
Oh, Avis! You’ll be screaming her name All. Night. Long. Catch his eye from across the room with her shimmery silhouette and lure him in with her solid toe cap. This ballet flat’s quilted material wraps your foot in comfort, but that won’t keep you from being swept off your feet.
He’ll look good with your legs wrapped around him and Anoushka dangling from your toes. The slender stiletto on this platform pump begs to be stroked, but it’s the blend of soft and shiny materials that will hold him captive. We suggest you hang on tight – when Anoushka’s involved, you’d better prepare for an intense evening.
Castello di Rivoli calls for a little role play. Get carried away impersonating the damsel in distress waiting to be rescued by your prince – clutch in tow. The reptile texture will help you unleash your animalistic instincts, while the lustrous exterior will keep all eyes (and hands and lips) on you.
Love bites, so turn him (and you) on by putting some snap in your bedroom style. Visionary’s croc-embossed material will nip at your freaky side, but the petite size won’t get in your way when the impulse strikes.
Have any of these styles got your motor running? Or do you get off in shoes and handbags of another shade?
