I just got an email from Madewell about their fall line. I never really care for the way they style their lookbooks, but I really like each piece individually and feel like I'd be able to wear a lot of the pieces below ... the jumpsuit is TDF! None of these pieces are available on their website to buy yet, but they do have a phone number if you'd like to pre-order (which is stupid- why not just wait until it's all in the store).
It's funny to see certain shoe trends go in and out of style. I remember when I was in college pointy-toed shoes were very in style and I had several pair of pumps and flats with a pointed toe. Then the round toe came back in style and everyone wanted the rounded TB revas and rounded toe pumps. Personally, I've always loved pointed toe pumps and flats better because I think they look more stylish. I've noticed A LOT of pointed toe flats recently.
It all started back in the early spring when I started noticing a lot of fashion bloggers wearing the Nicholas Kirkwood Beya Flats which I love:
And recently I saw that J.Crew is making a pointy-toe flat called the Gemma Flat- LOVE!
Aren't they cute?
And while we're talking about J.Crew shoes, I would just like to say that the Elsie pump is by far THE MOST COMFORTABLE work pump you can get. I have worn my sand ones down to the nubs on the heels. I have already ordered a second pair of the sand and recently got the dusty rose color.
I think the navy color will be my next purchase- perfect for fall!
J.Crew always does great with pumps as evidenced by their promo shot below:
For some reason I can't really wear d'Orsay style shoes because they are horribly uncomfortable on me, but I wish I could!
Back to FLATS!
I recently saw a blogger wearing these and thought they were so cute, but they are hella expensive!
So I did a little digging and found a very similar flat for a fraction of the price of the Jimmy Choo ones-
And the best part is that these Vince Camuto ones come in several different colors.
I think they are really cute and look nearly identical, what do you all think?
