The Goods: Karen Elson Wants You To Have These Carven Pumps

We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: Carven pumps that go against everything we know.

It’s a mantra fashion rags repeat all the time: Ankle straps make your legs look stumpier, and nude heels are elongating.

We never really took it seriously — not even when Kate Middleton glued L.K. Bennetts to her feet — so when Karen Elson uttered the exact opposite, we took that as our cue to ditch the beige for these 60-percent-off Carven pumps.

Pistachio-macaron green suede round-toes obviously don’t offer much in the skin-matching optical illusion department, but the oversized bow and 3.5-inch heel will balance out and lengthen your leg. There’s a reason why these $179 bestsellers helped put Guillaume Henry on the map, and while their supermodel gams-giving ability ain’t it, they more than make up for that.

Now take our advice and consider these Goods:
