+ Look for Less

Morning Line: September 23

Looking for some fall work pumps that go beyond the basic?  There are some great t-straps on the market.  T-straps bring a cool, vintage vibe to any outfit.  I suggest buying them in a color or metallic to perk up basic work dresses and wearing them with micro-fishnets.

Corner Office


SJP Carrie Lame Pumps ($375)

Middle Cubicle


Louise et Cie Harlem Pumps ($139)

Intern Desk


Nine West Tornado Pumps ($89, 20%-off two or more styles)

I also thought about these $45 silver metallic pumps from Camille La Vie.

    Just a warning: the Nine West pumps are extremely uncomfortable and I still haven’t managed to break them in. After about a half hour, I got blisters around the toe area and the backs of my heels. So if your job requires more than sitting at a desk, I might not wear them to work (for a night out with minimal walking, they’re not so bad).

    Microfishnets – This is the year that I buy them. Do you still recognize the DKNY?

      Yes, I still like DKNY. Wolford also makes a good pair if you want to spend a little more.
