Things I bought, things I want, still-waiting-for-spring edition


green clogs

I don’t typically go in for footwear in primary colors, but I fell hard for these green Rachel Comey clogs, and acquired them even though they cost more than clogs should cost. They give excellent height, and will look as cute with dresses as with jeans. (Also, if you’re interested, here is an amusing and informative story on clogs in which I am quoted a few times.)

My new Zero+ Maria Cornejo cardigan—in such a good tomato red—is in deeply heavy rotation.

dolce bootie

I’ve been looking for a pointy-toe bootie with something higher than a kitten heel, but still on the low side, and these seem to fit my specs perfectly.

I own too many totes, so I likely won’t be purchasing this leopard print one, but I really want it.

fanny pack

I don’t own any fanny packs, on the other hand, and I really like this one, because the nubby texture is aces, and I always love blue and black together. I think I might wear it cross-body, as I’m still not convinced I’m cool enough to pull off a fanny pack.

clog sandal

This clog sandal is from Dansko, which is not a brand I usually go for for, but apparently they’re super-comfortable, and I saw a woman wearing them the other day and they came off really sexy. I think the reason is that they look higher than they are.

New cheap and chic footwear alert


day glove
Everlane is calling their new flat the Day Glove, and indeed, it fits just like one (they sent me a pair to try). It’s also much more streamlined and chic than your usual ballet flat, if you ask me. It launched today, in six colors including a very good pale pink, and if you’re at all interested I’d advise getting yourself a pair pronto because they’re already selling out in some sizes.
