10th Commandment: February 12

Zara Kitten Heel Shoes with Bow ($70)

I don’t like bows.  More to the point, I don’t like the flimsy bows they sometimes put on ballet flats or the ostentatious Christmas-package bows that they put on high heels.  But I do like sleek bows with clean lines, like the bow on the shoe above.

I also like the look of kitten heels.  They can be worn under trousers as an alternative to heels or flat, and I like the vintage look of kitten heels with a pencil skirt.  I like the chic embellishments on these DKNY heels (good for daytime or evening), and these black and white snakeskin-like heels from Topshop.

Need something under-$50?  I found these black patent kitten heels from Target and these D’orsay-style kitten heels.

    I don’t like the flimsy string bows on ballet flats either- I think they look silly and cheap. I found these https://www.6pm.com/ivanka-trump-walker-new-nocciola-mc-beige-soho that are similar to the Zara pair too!

    is the fabric on the zara shoes too satin-y for work? I can’t tell if they’re shiny or not. Love the structure though.

    Kate Spade does some nice, simple bows sometimes. I love their Lilia Heels, although I can’t afford them!

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
