The Vintage & Victorian Inspired House of Harlow Booties

Check out this new bootie from House of Harlow 1960. We’re pretty sure celebrity fashionista Nicole Richie channeled a different era when she came up with this shoe. The “Hope” features intricate gold embroidery and beadwork around the ankle, on the back, and at the front – details that strongly remind us of something vintage and Victorian. Add the flared stacked kittenish heel to that and you basically get a bootie that is interestingly modern yet antique looking at the same time:

What do you think so far?

Victorian influences aside, there is a hint of edginess to this shoe that we can’t quite ignore. And as weird as this may sound, we can actually picture it working with something glam rock – all black, with touches of leather, a bit of gold, and wild wild hair. Can you relate?

Aside from the striking gold embellishments, the “Hope” is made entirely out of kidskin suede. The heel is a good 4 inches high but you can easily manage that with its half-inch thick hidden platform. A pair will cost you a somewhat steep $295 over at Shopbop, do you think it’s worth the price? Better yet, can you appreciate its vintage appeal? Or would you rather spend that money on something less theatrical?
