That’s right, Reeboks “Classics” have returned. And they are bolder than ever as they were crafted exclusively for Nordstrom in collaboration with Alicia Keys.
If you were coming of age in the late 80′s like I was, you will no doubt remember these high-top sneakers worn with extra-scrunchy socks. Sometimes even layered… as if!
You may have been sporting them with your Guess jean skirt (jeans weren’t coolly referred to as “denim” back then.) Or maybe you were still “pegging” your jeans. Whatever. These were the “it” shoes for a time and now they are back!
I just can’t imagine picking my sons up from school in these, shall we say, “retro” kicks.
I’m ready for sandal weather. I want to get my pedi on and show it off with pretty open-toed shoes and sandals.
I also want to wear these Vince Camuto Tezer Tortoise Sandals that I just ordered. You would not believe the deal I got on them. And what’s more? How I actually got them for free – shipping included!
Months back, I ordered a beautiful Burberry watch for my husband. This particular retailer sent me an empty box. There was a little back and forth that went on. To make it up to me, they sent me a $50 gift card via email. Now that’s customer service!
I’ve been holding onto that certificate thinking that I’d try to order something fabulous and a little indulgent. So when I found these fun “dancing with the stars” shoes, which will go with just about anything, I had to spring for them.
Yep, we’re back to dresses… dresses that I can’t wear now, but still dresses.
I am in deep love with this Peter Som dress. At first glance, it looks sort of “matronly.” It reminded me of cleaning out my Great Aunt’s closet, which was full of stylish-for-the-times knit/polyester blend dresses. But close up, this dress is cotton, slightly sheer and features a “rainbow” of blue shades that are some of my faves.
Still not convinced? Check it out here on Rachel McAdams with a creamy, demure coat and cap-toe pumps!
Gucci obviously knows what they are doing when it comes to leather goods and these shoes scream “Spring” to me… something I’ve been waiting to hear since fall showed up last year!
This mom-to-be-again loves the fact that the heel is small and secure, but also appreciates the very sexy and feminine ankle strap. And what’s not equally as sexy as the tiny peek at your first spring pedi?
I received J.Crew’s stylebook catalog today, and got a better glimpse of a print that has been catching my eye in ads for the past several weeks.
The J.Crew Hummingbird Floral print, which is part of their “Collection” line (read $$$), has absolutely stolen my heart. I love the pale blue background. I love the pops of red, black, white and bits of pale pink, green and purple against the rich silk/cotton blend fabrics.
And the Hummingbird Floral-print Etta pump with glitter heels are an absolute stunning combination that will be hard to go without. But then again, that little minaudière would be a treasured piece for many years to come!
In fact, I want virtually every piece in the collection. But at J.Crew’s inflated “Collection” prices, I may have to just choose one!
