As those of you with small children know, it matters not a whit how late you were up, working on tax returns and blogs - they will not allow you to sleep in. They'll wake up at the crack of dawn (okay, so not the exact cracking of dawn, but early enough to you that it feels like it) demanding things like "big hugs," and "bre-fest" and "canIwatchmyshowMom-MomcanIwatchmyshow?"
I swear, the first three hours of the day, I quite literally felt like I was moving through a thick, cobwebby fog, despite having had an enormous cup of joe. I finally felt rejuvenated after an outing to the mall. There's not much that a little fresh air and walking amongst pretty clothes can't fix. ^_-
Skirt: Kate Spade 'Lillith' Stripe Skirt (similar colors/shape here and here; same cut but different colors/prints here and here; and a sparkly party version here)
Shoes: Sole Society 'Blake' Pump (If you don't have an account, sign up here; otherwise similar here and here)
The shoes I'm wearing in these photos are my first and so far, only purchase from Sole Society. For those of you who aren't familiar, Sole Society is a (free) membership shoe retailer that provides you recommendations monthly based on your style profile, which is determined via your answers to a short introductory quiz. What's nice about this site are the prices - all shoes are priced at $49.95 except for some boots. The Blake pumps, which I'm wearing above, are TTS, made from real suede, and super comfortable. The first time I wore them, I ended up traipsing around Santa Monica on foot - and nary a blister or sore spot was to be had! Pretty impressive for a shoe with a 3.75" heel. I don't know if the level of quality and comfort is consistent across all of their offerings (I will say I started by ordering the Phebe, and sent them back, because they were much...chunkier than I expected them to be), but I'm looking forward to trying out another pair. The next on my radar are the Val Colorblock Platform Sandal.
What about you? Have you tried out Sole Society, or other membership sites like Shoe Mint? What's your experience been with them and their products?
