Que Bella – Ladies Lunch

I love going to our neighborhood Ladies Luncheon’s. I don’t get to go every month but I made it a point to go today because I hadn’t been since the fabulous Christmas luncheon.

I wore pants today, and old ones too. These are from at least J Crew 2007. Anyone remember these? I have the same pair in a beautiful green. These fit perfectly everywhere, except the length. The sizing is a 6S, meaning S is for Short. Probably short for a person who is 6 foot but not for someone who is 5’2”. AND, I’ve never taken them to get hemmed. It’s about time I did that because I really like these pants.

Pants: J Crew Favorite Fit in White, 6S
Cami: J Crew Tulip Ruffle Cami in Dragonfly Blue, 8
Jacket: Old Navy Cropped Denim Jacket in White, M
Shoes: Vince Camuto Estera, 6 1/2 (not online anywhere yet…more info below)
The pants are so long they cover the entire shoe!

About the shoes…I found these Tuesday at Nordstrom’s. One of my other need/want items was a pair of Leopard sandals, preferably an espadrille or wedge. I saw some CL Carino Leopard Espadrilles on ebay but his espadrilles do not fit me well, probably because they are whole sizes only. So, these Vince Camuto’s just came in Monday evening and I was smitten when I saw them. I walked around the mall for a bit but kept thinking back to those lovely shoes. Since I parked by Nordstrom’s I knew I would have to walk back by them so when I did, I tried them on. The sales associate also brought out my new Black Glitter TOMS and I’m so glad she did.

Anyway, they are a sky-high, sling-back, wedge, espadrille-ish, peep-toe LEOPARD sandal. What more could a girl ask for?

These leopards are sky-high. 
1 1/2 in. platform
4 3/4 in. heel
Size 6 1/2 (The 7s were loose on me at the front of the shoe.)
Price $117.95
Similar in style to the Edon.
It does have a skinny heel, for those of you who have problems walking in that type of shoe. I wore these for about three hours today without any problems. I stumbled only once but I do that in flats. I have to say they are pretty comfortable and even though they were high, I didn’t have any altitude sickness (haha) or issues with walking in them or it affecting my stride. You know you’ve seen those ladies walking in sky-high heels taking baby steps so they don’t tip over. They came in a light gray leather and one other color. Not sure when they’ll be online at Nordstrom’s or the Vince Camuto site. 
Have a great evening!

    You'll feel so much better once you have them altered. I did that on a few pair of BR pants & jeans and even had them tapered a smidge because the flare was a bit big. It's like getting a new pair pant wardrobe. I usually take at least 2 at a time to make it worth my while.

    I love seeing the tulip on you in dragonfly blue. So pretty!

    That cami is stunning, such a great color on you!

    And yes, totally don't understand why short means kinda less long than usual. But hemming them does make it so much easier to wear.
