Dear "keldel" thanks!
This Old Navy Pintucked Gauze Top is really a great find.
It looks very nice by itself, and is also neutral enough to be styled in different ways. I can see it paired with jeans or shorts for a walk on the beach, or with a more tailored suit for work. I had fun trying on the different options.
I also hope this encourages other readers to send in questions or comments.
I saw this shoes and I fell in love with them. They are very simple pumps, but with delicate details that make them sexy and classy at the same time.
#1- The heel height passes my test, helped by the fact that it has a hidden platform.
#2- The tapered heels are thin and slender, they look like stilettos, but are supportive enough that I can walk on them.
#3- The rounded toe cap is stylized and feminine, while anatomically forgiving.
3#- Price was right (around $50 at Nine West outlet stores), but right now they have "buy one, get one 50% off" which makes it a much better deal.
I'd love to own something a little funkier for my nights out, but since they are virtually nonexistent I am better off with these.
They can easily be dressed up for a night out, or even a more formal affair, and they can be beautifully combined with suits and work wear.
In other words: I got them!
