10th Commandment: April 24

Nina Marisol Sandals ($89)

Evening shoes are something every woman should own.  You never know when you’ll need a pair for a wedding, a cocktail event or other occasion.  I keep one pair of metallic sandals just in case.  I like my evening shoes with a little sparkle, but I think shoes that are dripping in crystals or embellishments often look cheap.  This pair has just enough shine to be festive but not enough to look over done.  They also come in gold.

These Circe sandals, also from Nina, have a slingback style with a lower heel and a great look to them.  If you prefer a traditional pump, this Rylee heel from J.Renee also comes in gold and silver.  They also make a similar style in peep-toe.

Trying to match a bridesmaid’s dress?  These satin pumps from Nina come in 10 colors, have a dance-all-night heel height and a small embellishment on the vamp.

Going to an outdoor event?  Wedges aren’t my favorite, but for walking on grass, there’s nothing better.  (Hear that, Gold Cup, Derby and outdoor wedding attendees?)  These Seychelles metallic wedges are a good start.  LOFT is selling some cute ankle-strap wedges.  Or if you just want a low-heel wedge, try these low wedges with a wood heel from Seychelles.

    Thank you so much for this post. I am the MOH for my sister’s wedding in September and I am on the hunt for silver heels!

  3. This might sound a little odd but the most versatile evening shoes I’ve owned are nude patent. I bought them for my wedding (to make my legs look longer in the reception dress) and thought I wouldn’t wear them again. But I think I’ve worn them to pretty much every cocktail event I’ve been to in the last 1.5 years.

    I scoured the internet looking for a flat evening shoe and came up with the below. I’m still waiting for them to arrive so I can’t speak to quality or comfort. But I figured I would share in case anyone else was in the same boat.

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
