I don’t know if it’s the effect of changing trends or my changing tastes, but what I thought was an undying love of platform shoes is kind of dying. Maybe it’s the Sarah Jessica Parker effect, but I’m feeling like wearing more classic, pointed-toe pumps lately.
So when Glam.comm called asking if I wanted to buy some shoes and write about them for a collab with DSW, I figured this was my chance. I landed not one but two pairs of Joes Jeans strappy pumps, one in black and white and one in maroon suede. Here, I’ve styled the maroon version three ways: formal-ish, a daytime look, and a casual weekend look.
I don’t dress up all that much, but with party season approaching, I’m hoping for some opportunities to turn it up a notch. I bought the green dress above at a sale in San Francisco hosted by ModaVive, which sells gently-used fashion and donates money to charities. I love the color and the length. I’ve had the Kenneth Jay Lane necklace forever. The bracelet is a J Crew necklace.
I bought this faux leather skirt at H&M a few years ago while I was in NYC for fashion week. Ah, memories! The denim, tie-dye shirt is from Zara. The bag is from The Podolls.
These Citizens of Humanity jeans looked amazing on the model, but they just made me look like a blob. So I cut them off at the ankles and I think that improved things at least a little bit! The sweater is from Zara.
