Reviews: Faubourg Mary Janes

Because I work in a neighborhood with cobblestone streets I have been looking for pumps with thicker heels. With the 1940s theme going around the world of fashion lately this has been pretty easy.

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Email: Seeing Red

Alright Anthropologie faithful — this is it. Last day for U.S. residents to get free shipping on orders over $200. If you have already taken advantage of this offer I’d love to know what you got!

Surprise! The Clever & Wily Shift Dress

When I first saw the Clever & Wily Shift ($328) I purred at the cashmere dress’s noticeably Audrey Hepburn-like vibe. So simple and yet so chic. But then I saw the dress from the back. It took me awhile to decide if I like this rear view or not. I’ve come to the conclusion that I like it. It doesn’t…
