Review: Leopard and laces…reloaded

What: Lace-up flats in leopard calf hair by J.Crew

When: Winter 2016

How (Material): Calf hair upper, leather lining and soleebelandi_jcrew_flats_calf_leopard_bis_4

Why (Pros):

  1. Look: Very pretty flats. Unlike the previous lace-up leopard flats, the laces here are made of suede or velvet-like material instead of leather.  Both work though I prefer the leather laces 🙂 ebelandi_jcrew_flats_calf_leopard_bis_3
  2. Comfort: Very comfortable.
  3. Quality: Great quality leather and calf hair.  The calf pattern here is pretty unique, the laces are well made as well.  My only complaint is the heel…too close to the ground in my opinion so I foresee early wear and tear if you plan to walk with these a lot.
  4. Sizing: True to size.

Why Not (Cons): The price…

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper! What do you say?

Review: Rhodes pants in Italian wool

Have been wondering why these pants are called Rhodes…At first, I thought they were “rogue” but just my eyes playing with me. Wikipedia states that Rhodes is Greece’s largest Dodecanese island so does this mean the style of the pants should remind us of the Greek island? Or is it the pants are a common street style in Rhodes? 😦 In any case, my review below.
