Shoes-day: J Crew Etta Printed Cap Toe Pumps

I may need an intervention…an Etta intervention. I am now on my third pair and am eyeing my fourth (the Collection Calf Hair Pumps). They are just so gorgeous. The beautiful Collection Etta Printed Cap Toe Pumps are now in my hot little hands. I was not about to pass these up on the first day like I did with the Hummingbird Etta’s.

As soon as I saw these in the catalog I knew I had to have them. The Foulard silk print is gorgeous.

I love the contrasting prints.

The heel is wrap completely in the silk Foulard.

I took my normal size 7. There’s about a quarter inch of space at the heel but the shoe fit well everywhere else so sizing down would not have been a good choice.

I am clumsy at times so I am afraid I will snag the silk at some point. Keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t. I cannot wait to wear these babies. I have worn my Etta Snakeskin Pumps (reviewed here) for a few hours and they were comfortable. The true test will be wearing these for an 8+ hour work day.
The count for the Etta’s now matches my Bronson Booties count. Best little booties ever. I wish JC had kept that style around. It was perfect for us shorties who don’t want to cut off their ankle, which most ankle boots do. It had such a flattering scoop front and an hidden platform. I love mine! Of course, buying multiples is standard when we love the shoe, cardian, blouse, skirt, leggings, etc. 
Have a Great Day!

    These are so much prettier IRL than they look online, and so fab on you!

      shopwithm – Yes I have to say the photoshopping they did with the online pics don't do them justice.

    Those are TDF! I love them, but have such little need for heels – tempting though.

    Wear them now! They are stunning and would look fab with white dress and your tan.

    Do the shoes slide off when you walk? I tried sizing up in these and it was of no use.

    • August 9, 2013 / 2:27 pm

      Rose – These fit perfectly and don't slide at all. Now, I do have to say that the Bead-Stitch Etta's do slide. It's not quite a 7 1/2 but still feels a little bigger than the other two pair I have in a 7.

    Gorgeous! I've been eying these online and couldn't wait to see them on someone. I really 'need' these! I also really really appreciate your review.
