It's autumn, and for my wardrobe color palette that means I'm on a quest for some new navy shoes. I need driving mocs/loafers for my usual "uniform" of cords, tee and sweater, and I need some ballet flats for my skinny lil' toothpick jeans. As much as I really hate to say this, I am finding over time that many of my Crew ballet flats aren't very comfortable. Do y'all find this?? It's especially true of some of the stiffer patent leathers (e.g., metallic guava and peacock Salinas), which I love... until I wear them for a while. Could be I am needing to size up a 1/2 size -- I may try that -- but I'm feeling a little burned and so am looking elsewhere for this fall. And I'm not looking to spend $$$ on anything -- $$ or better yet $ would be wonderful for my clothing budget!
Wow, are there some cutie pie shoes out there in the $ to $$ price range, from basics on up. I'm with our friend Sweet Tea in Seattle on this: I love Endless.com. I also have a close personal one-on-one relationship with Zappos.com. I've even been invited to join VIP.Zappos.com. Oo-la-la. :-)
I Polyvored a few candidates, of course including some juicy little items that aren't navy -- aren't even blue at all! -- but look so luscious. I especially like the idea of the little evergreen-colored Calvin Klein suede ballet flat with some of that gorgeous new forest-green stuff at JC.
Here are the mocs & loafers:
