Review: J.Crew Quinn Ankle-Cuff Pumps


Purchased the Quinn Ankle pumps a while back on one of the promos but was only able to wear yesterday.   If you are considering the pumps for Cyber Monday (or subsequent days), my review below:

Pros: I love ankle shoes and the straps (cuffs 🙂 ) on these are very comfortable, they are not too tight on the ankle either.  The leather is of great quality, buttery and all (whatever that means 🙂 ). The heel is a very manageable 3 1/2 inches, they actually feel lower than three inches, very comfortable and could be worn all day.  The color is a pretty blue. Fit is true-to-size with a tiny room so you could do half a size down if you like a tighter fit but I believe TTS is the way to go.

Cons: The color may be difficult to pair but I personally like it

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper!

Do you agree? Please share! The other pumps I like from the sale section are the Leather-Bow Ankle Strap.


If you have tried them on, let me know if to bite or not. They look pretty cute on Pink Peonies.

Reviews – J.Crew pumps: everly, glitter and jeweled – 28 Oct 2013

During the 40% off promo, I purchased three pairs of shoes from J.Crew.  I ended up returning the everly pumps for an exchange, and am still undecided on the glitter and jeweled.  Let me know what you think!

Let’s start with the Everly Jeweled printed pumps:

jcrew_everly_jeweled_dark_schwartz_pump_6 jcrew_everly_jeweled_dark_schwartz_pump_5 jcrew_everly_jeweled_dark_schwartz_pump_4 jcrew_everly_jeweled_dark_schwartz_pump_3 jcrew_everly_jeweled_dark_schwartz_pump_2 jcrew_everly_jeweled_dark_schwartz_pump_1

Pros: Nicely made, the print is unique and definitely stands out, moderate heel, comfortable, nice jewelry addition

Cons: fabric will peel off I fear, especially at the heel, jewelry and metallic accent may seem a little too much, price

Sissi’s verdict: undecided, leaning towards keeping.

Next, the Everly Leather Pumps in Vintage Murberry:

jcrew_pump_damaged_4 jcrew_pump_damaged_3 jcrew_pump_damaged_2 jcrew_pump_damaged_1

Pros: Nice leather, soft and high quality, moderate heel, comfortable, may be dressed up or down

Cons: I received them damaged (scratches all over….seriously?!? 😦 ); leather covered heel…so hard to maintain compared to wooden heels

Sissi’s verdict: Returned for exchange; will keep the exchange unless defective again

Finally, the Nora golden glitter ballet flats .

Pros: Comfortable, fun

Cons: Glitter will come off (choker!), runs large

Sissi’s verdict: undecided, leaning towards keeping.
