Review: Elsie Fabric pumps

What: Elsie Fabric d’Orsay pumps by J.Crew

ebelandi_jcrew_elsie_print_pumps_3

Season: Summer 2015

Material: Cotton upper, leather lining and sole. The print is similar to the geo brushstroke shirt and shorts.

Quality: Very good! I picked the blue print (as opposed to the yellow one) and it’s a nice bright color.  There is no toe cleavage at all, actually the shoes are pretty covered up front which requires a little getting used to for me.  The foot is open between the toe and the heel, which I understand to be the shape of d’orsay shoes.  Heels are manageable.

Fit: True to size to slightly large.

Pros: The heel height, the fun print and the sale price

Cons: Covered toes (a little too covered but manageable) and matching the print to regular outfits (will require some imagination).


Sissi’s verdict: Keeper on 75% off super sale.

Material: 100% leather upper, lining and sole.

Quality: Very good! Soft leather, very unique print (some type of zebra-like lines). Pointed toe is well executed, minimal toe cleavage and mid-heel.

Fit: True to size. Very comfortable to walk in.

Sissi’s verdict: Undecided….I love the versatility of the print, but not sure to keep at the full price (even with 30% promo…maybe wait for sale?)

Review: Roxie Ankle Tie Tassel pumps

What: Roxie Ankle Tie Tassel pumps by J.Crew

Season: Spring 2014

Material: 100% leather upper, lining and sole.

ebelandi_jcrew_roxie_tassel_pumps_ankle_tie_2

Quality:  Excellent! Soft leather, no toe cleavage (deal breaker to some), manageable heels. Not too keen on the tassel mania but they don’t look too bad so I guess they pass. Otherwise, they can be removed easily (just untie the knots)

Fit: I was able to fit my regular shoe size, so I’d say they run true to size.

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper! Am always for ankle straps and the gorgeous olive green will add a nice sophistication to spring and summer outfits! 😉
