Score at J. Crew.

We ran to J. Crew last night because they were holding a pair of the Joley pearlized-patent peep toes for me (previously blogged about here). I was thrilled they had them in the store because their sizes tend to be pretty inconsistent.

They are a dream! It took everything I had (and a couple of stern looks from Justin) not to also grab the red and pink ones (which looked more brown in the store than online, if I remember them correctly).

The shoes are actually very comfortable. I wore them the whole day and didn't get any blisters. I have a feeling I may live in these shoes. I plan to stalk to jcrew.com for the other colors to go on sale.

The heel height is perfect for me -- not too tall, not too short, but just right. I like how the peep toe part is a little bigger/more open than some. I can't explain how awesome the leather looks -- it is shiny, and it has a pearlized look to it too. The pearlization (is that a word?) is more noticeable on some of the other colors, but the black is great. You can kind of see it below, but I had a hard time getting it to show up in the pics. In case anyone is planning on getting them, I think they run about a half size small. These are a 7 and I have other pairs of J. Crew shoes in a 6.5.

I also happened to find the atelier jacket while I was perusing the sale section. I have been eying the gray one online for a long time (and have balked on it several times when there was free shipping). After trying on the one in white, I was sold. And, the best part -- it rung up for $30.00 cheaper when I checked out. Love it when that happens!!

Close up. Love the ruffle neck!!

The jacket and shoes combo.

I had a long day at work and was in no mood to smile or worry about my hair/make-up for the picture, hence the headless shots. Don't judge.

  1. The Joleys are great. I wore my orange ones a few times in a row so wearing black multiple times in a week sounsd about right to me.

    The atelier looks nice on you, too.
