Every Friday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase, for which it’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity. If you’re looking for cheap thrills instead, check back every Monday for a fun pick-me-up that will still leave you enough cash for dinner.
Marc Jacobs may have gone goth for fall 2016, but his spring collection channels the tenacity and innocence of high school youth. One piece from the collection, an easy, on-the-go heel, would make for an excellent Friday splurge because it’s almost — dare we say — practical. Not only does it come with a walkable block heel, but the shiny black patent finish will make it look like you spent more time contemplating your outfit than you actually did. The ribbon ankle straps are a cute detail. Just add a pair of kick flare jeans.
