I’m pretty particular about wearing anything with type on it and making too much of a verbal statement, but these seven tops are great exceptions. It’s all about good, clean, creative use of type!
When I lived in New York, my wardrobe consisted mainly of black, gray and dark blues. Now that I’m back in California, I’m relishing wearing bright and cheerful colors again.

I recently purchased these and I could use some 2c on whether I should keep them. Here are my pros and cons:
*They are gorgeous
*The are comfortable
*They pair perfectly with my wardrobe
*I’m in need of some low heels for interviewing
*They were 50% off at Macys
*The top bow/strap makes my feet look a bit wide, which they are not, which makes them a bit weird
*Even at 50% they are still pricey
*They do not look good with my new minty fresh toe polish
The poll is in with 2/3rds saying to return. Seems most everyone liked my nail polish color more than the shoes and once I heard “Minnie Mouse” I couldn’t stop thinking about them being part of a Disneyland costume.
Since my first trip to Paris at the age of fourteen, I have been an avid francophile. Though I am only 1/8th French, I am attracted to many aspects of French culture. And when it comes to fashion, French women tend to have a casual elegance that seems effortless and I am constantly trying to transform my closet into something that, just maybe, a shorter version of Charlotte Gainsbourg might find comfort in. Hence I am a huge fan of the Breton stripe, and an even bigger fan of Bensimon sneakers, which make everything I wear feel a bit more French, feminine and casually elegant. Perfect for a relaxing spring weekend in the city!
