New Years Eve Eve?

My shoes from maurices arrived yesterday, so I thought I would wear them right away so I could let y'all know what I thought. Honestly, my first impression wasn't the best. The shoes weren't in a box - just in a plastic bag - which my mailman shoved into my tiny mailbox. So I was worried that the shoes would be all squished. They were not. The "leather" was soft and supple, and they were comfy all day long. There is no padding in the bottom of the shoe, but I found this to be comparable to all my other flats in this same price range. I would definitely recommend maurices shoes.

What I Wore While Road-testing Shoes:

2009-12-30 combo

  • pink skirt (via Goodwill)
  • purple tank (Lane Bryant)
  • plaid wrap shirt (The Limited)
  • purple harlequin tights (Target?)
  • black flats (maurices)
  • purple earrings (via Swap)
  • purple necklace (vintage, hand-me-down from friend)

Love that coat! And I'm so happy that flats are coming back. I will be living in them this spring. Here's to a Happy New Year!

That coat is gorgeous! Not a fan of flats, myself, but those are cute.

Brooke said...

I love that coat! You looks so cozy and happy.

Also I covet your tights.

Sher - thanks! It's a vintage coat that I picked up many many years ago in Austin. I need have some work done on it. And I wholeheartedly agree about flats. So much easier on the feet.

Sheila - thanks! I used to hate flats b/c I thought they made me look short, Flinstone feet, etc but now I love them b/c I can still be cute and walk around a lot. I don't just have to wear tennies if I'm going to be doing a lot of walking.

Brooke - Thanks! I love these tights too. I've had them in my drawer for quite a while, but I finally found something to wear them with.
