pumped up


Fashion Week may be about dressing for attention, but the woman pictured above proves that dressing up basics can be just as compelling, if not more so. I'm loving her (past season CH Carolina Herrera) classic pumps the most--they literally elevate her outfit, after all--and it didn't take me long to find a similar pair, thanks to J.Crew, which, as fate would have it, is offering 25% off all shoes (and bags!) through September 8. Oh, and you might also find other tempting on-sale basics there, such as these everyday wearable block-heeled boots (love the faded black suede!), these ballet slippers and this leather clutch. Use the code EXTRAS at checkout.

simple classic style- like the jacket too-- where's that from??

This is exactly the way I like to dress - timeless basics that can be mixed and matched almost endlessly. And I love a pointy-toed heel too. Well done!

Love this simple, chic look! The heels totally elevate the outfit into a thing of beauty!
