Picture 015OMG, so happy dancing about these shoes. I first saw them in Lucky magazine in the summer and drooled over them. Two of my favorite colors (I even had pink and orange as my wedding colors), a darling little bow and a wedge heel. It was as though the J. Crew gods got together to create the dream shoe for Allie. Too bad the price was way outside my comfort zone.

Well they FINALLY went on sale (and I had a few promo codes up my sleeve) and they STILL had my size in stock so I finally got them! My winter wardrobe isn't really made for them, but I can see them going with a good 80% of my spring and summer pieces! I jsut had to share a close-up photo (and also you can see the new pedi!).

  2. The zipper was sewn shut the bottom inch, and two safety pins keep it shut on the top. I figure it was free… might as well get full use out of it!

  3. Hi Allie!

    So did you do something to the Newport News pencil skirt so that it is more wearable now? I remember the first time you wore it was kind of a fiasco, wasn’t it?
