Among the many bright style spots seen at Saturday’s rainy beachside ceremony: a slew of shine on Krysten Ritter's, Cristin Milioti's and Sarah Paulson's feet.

The Independent Spirit Awards tend to have a cool, laid-back vibe that – sartorially speaking – couldn’t be more different from the Oscars (after all, starlets tend to leave their bodyguarded jewels home when hitting the beach). And this year’s oceanside ceremony celebrating low-budget movie magic is no exception, with fun, colorful ensembles that we actually want to try at home.

One trend that seems to be, uh, afoot at Saturday’s event is the use of pointed, metallic pumps in gold and silver, as sported by Krysten Ritter (in Rupert Sanderson shoes), How I Met Your Mother actress Cristin Milioti and Sarah Paulson.

We may not try the look at the beach, per se. But this feels kind of early 2000s in the best possible way. We dig.
