|Scoopneck blouse in anchors aweigh: J.Crew, summer 2012|
Purple tweed pencil skirt: J.Crew, early 2011 I think?
Reptile Colette pumps: Tahari, here
Necklace: Anthropologie, fall 2012
These Colette pumps have turned out to be my favorite work heel. I wore the nude patent version to death in the summer, and now this taupe reptile-print leather pair are quickly becoming my go-to fall pumps. They are extremely comfortable and the heel is the perfect work height. Trust me, when you're close to Amazonian height like me, you don't want to frighten coworkers and customers by wearing 4+ inch heels in the workplace. But hey, maybe that's just my conservative view.
Further proof that I am a compulsive J.Crew hoarder: After carrying the green/blue version non-stop since I purchased it last Thursday, (see this post for the bag) I decided I had to have the pink/orange version too. (See here). So I went back to J.Crew, as they had several last week, and they were all gone. But once again a fabulous sales associate took down my information, hunted it down for me and then called me to say she was having it mailed to me. (THANKS Samantha!) The customer service of the sales associates in my local J.Crew cannot be beat. I can't wait to carry the pink/orange version! It's such a steal!
Are you a hoarder? I know a lot of people are against owning multiples of an item. I, on the other hand, always have to fight the compulsion to own a item in every color if I love it...and sometimes I lose.
