I really think people are over reacting a bit regarding the shoes. Maybe not what you would choose for yourself but certainly not as horrific as some people have expressed.

For the record: I'm an older woman whose taste is classic/conservative and though I'm not wild about them they do not send me into spasms of horror.

They were called "springolators"!

The lace outfit is by Varela, a bit similar to Sofia's christening.

That's a good way to put it about the shoes! Love her hair.

The shoes are pretty bad. Not sure what the thinking was there.

Did a bit of research last night and low and behold, Saks, Bloomingdales, Neiman Markus are including the same type of clear shoes. The prices are ridiculously high for acrylic but they will probably be a one season wonder. Go figure. Another "Back to the Future" style. But, if they do this new trend, they should make sure that they follow it perfectly and not include modern updates on the fashions of the 50/60. That is when it all falls apart, IMO.

I'll bet these styles are based on the new Cinderella movie. Perhaps the girls insisted their mother get a pair of them.

I could see the girls choosing the shoes because of the movie the shoes are just a little fun.

The dress Letizia wore today is beautiful. I love the black and white together. I'm not as big on her shoes though, as something about them is a bit odd for me. For the first time with her new bob, I think her hair looks a little unkempt.

I love the silk guipure lace Letizia wore for Leonor's First Communion. It's not the kind of lace that photographs well....but the close up detail is stunning. I also love the shoes....they're a bit of sartorial fashion fun worn with a classic outfit.

As to today's outfit....

I love it. It has Letizia's signature - chic, classy, minimalist.

It is. It's been quoted as Nina Ricci's but is a mistake.

Carolina Herrera should be one of Letizia's go-to designers. She always looks great in CH!
