Quick Fashion Queries: Vol III, No. Three
Jul 7, 2016
I wanted to send a thank you for recommending the B.P Moreover flats; these flats are by far my favorite now. Quick question – do you wear the no-show socks with flats, or do you go barefoot? Now that I have some nicer flats instead of a $15 pair from Target, any care tips would be appreciated!
Love the blog, Meg
I don’t wear no-show socks. They tend to slip off of my feet, and cause more problems than they solve.
As for care tips, because the shoes are patent leather, I remove scuffs with acetone (nail polish remover). I clean the inside with a mild detergent from time to time. And if they start to smell, I spritz them with vodka diluted with water to kill bacteria.
Can you help me find some cool clutches? All my girlfriends seem to own the same black one. I don’t want to spend more than $50 if I can help it, but I need something else to carry on dates.
While a black clutch is a good place to start, I prefer colored, printed, and textured clutches.
For prints, I like a subtle animal print clutch, like this one from Banana Republic. You might also try a floral print for summer. And if you need an all-purpose clutch for weddings try cork or a pale tan.
If you only need something small, go sleek and chic with this H&M charcoal grey and gold frame clutch.
Do you have a favorite casual shoe for summer? By that I mean a sneaker or just something with laces? Sandals aren’t practical for me, but I want something that feels summery and casual. NOT a ballet flat.
Thank you for your time, Misa
If you are sure about the laces, I like old school Keds. You can go classic white or weathered-navy jersey. If you’re not married to the laces, slip-ons are always an option. I like these metallic canvas ones or these perforated, white canvas shoe.
I love a good deal. How do you keep track of all the sales? And where do you find the best bargains?
