shoe alert! shoe alert! i may have just found my new favorite pair. if you have been following the blog for any length of time, you may have noticed i sometimes become attached to my latest purchase. and you see it on numerous occasions. like this black handbag with faux bamboo handles, i’m carrying in today’s ootd. we’ve seen it here, and here, and, yes, here too. this same habit applies to shoes. who remembers my orange louis et cie shoes? seen here, and here, and here. or my black and brown ivanka trump loafers? well, you get the point. but guess what? oops, i did it again. this time with a pair of pointy-toed slingbacks from j.crew. several of my all-time favorite flats from years gone by were purchased from my fav preppy store. and i have a feeling these cap-toed beauties are going to join the hall of famers. don’t you just love the first blush of love?
