Building an outfit around one key piece

I had admired these for a while, and when they went on sale, I ordered them. Cat Very Happy

 

They are silk and leather.  

I don't have anything planned right now in terms of future special events, but I liked that they have a lot of colors- especially my signature pink.

 

I think they are very "denim friendly" as the hosts would say.Cat Wink

 

Do you buy one special piece "just because",  knowing that you can build an entire outfit around it?

 

This is another find of mine that I have worn quite a bit since it arrived.

Beautiful shoes,  @Lolakimono.   You'll have fun finding clothing to wear with them.   I think I'd like coral or pink but you have many choices

Totally denim friendly.  With a pair of skinny jeans............nice !

I'd feel oh so pretty wearing them.

Those are the cutest shoes!! Pick a color any color and those shoes will be the star. Where did you find them? They would be the perfect Easter shoe for the first wearing.

@lolakimono
I know you didn't ask for suggestions but I'm picturing the shoes with a pair of pale yellow slim leg ankle pants

You reminded me I have all the Issac 24/7 ankle pants in colors, now I really need these shoes.

I love and them can think of tons of ways to wear them!  

 

I'd do a white straight skirt and a short slightly boxy jacket in a color.

@granny me

These are available too (the palms made me think of Palm Sunday), although they are a bit higher in the heel than my paisley ones.
