There have been a number of new shoe designers who have come to the market recently, and while most of them are gifted, time and again, I find myself falling especially hard for the talents of Tabitha Simmons. Maybe it’s because she is a stylist for Vogue, but she consistently knows what footwear works for the season, and my feet just look pretty in her shoes—longer, leaner, better versions of themselves. A good looking flat, especially one that you could wear with a cocktail dress is impossible to find, and these crystal flats fill both criteria and then some.
