Why (Pros):

  1. Look: Fabulous!!! True, am usually biased when it comes to ankle straps, but these shoes are just so cute, the bright orange and the fruits paired with the bow will make you smile all day.
  2. Comfort: Comfortable, heel is high but manageable. The sole is made of leather which adds comfort in my opinion.
  3. Quality: Excellent. Nice silk, well executed design with the round toe.  The ends of the bows are unfinished. I thought at first they were pilling but it appears to be a conscious design decision, in case that’s a turn off for some of you.ebelandi_jcrew_ratti_lena_8
  4. Sizing: True to size.ebelandi_jcrew_ratti_lena_7

Why Not (Cons): The price. I see they are on sale now, so grab them while you can!ebelandi_jcrew_ratti_lena_9

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper, if you can afford it! What do you say?
