Hello Everyone! I hope you're having a great week so far! It's time for another edition of *You Look Very Familiar...Have I Seen You Some Place Before?*, so let's get started! :)









Stuart Weitzman Tassel Pumps


Lane asked if I could find a similar boot to the pair on the girl to the left in this picture from my "Love This..." post last week.
*This pair from Mossimo Supply Co. look fairly similar and the price is fairly reasonable, too.

J.Crew Paisley Printed Wool Wrap

Guest Review by Desert Flower: Update...Quality Issues with the J.Crew Pia Calf Hair Pumps

At the end of July, Desert Flower shared a review of the J.Crew Pia Calf Hair Pumps that she had received. (If you happened to have missed her guest review you can see it
here.) In the review she mentioned that the pair she was sent had an area of discoloration and that she was exchanging them for a new pair. Well, the second pair arrived with another quality issue and today she is sharing an updated review with us.

Desert Flower writes:
"In follow up to my review post, I wanted to explain why I don't own the J.Crew Pia Calf Hair Pumps I raved about! The first pair I received, pictured in my post, had a very light area of discoloration on the toe of one shoe. I mentioned it in the review and it was prominent enough, and bothered me enough, that I returned the shoes and reordered. I received the second pair and opened the box to find that there was a quality issue with one shoe. The platform was separating from the shoe itself. Having never experienced any of the quality issues with tee shirts or knits or cashmere that I've heard about, I was surprised to have such problems with shoes.


I contacted my personal shopper who assisted me with once again returning the pumps and placing another order. This time the shoes were on back order until late September.  I waited patiently and then got that email that all J. Crew aficionadas dread, the cancellation email.  Although the shoes still showed up as backordered on the website, apparently my size was no longer available.

Three strikes, you're out. I give up on the Pia pumps.  There are lots of leopard pumps out there and I'm sure I can find something else I like.  In the meantime, these satin leopard pumps from Forever 21 caught my eye.  I ordered them and have received many compliments each time I've worn them. 


The F21 pumps also come in a grey/black combination, like the Pia pumps. 

I've been contemplating the J.Crew Silvia snakeskin pumps but after the quality issues I've had recently, I am hesitant to pay over $400 for them and I haven't seen any reviews to make me feel more confident about the purchase."

Thank you Desert Flower for taking the time to update us all regarding the quality issues with the Pia pumps. It is very frustrating to have such problems with the shoes, especially for the high dollar amount that J.Crew has them priced at. I'm glad you were able to find an alternative that you're happy with and hope that J.Crew considers increasing their quality control, not only on the Pia pumps, but on all of their merchandise.

Like Desert Flower mentioned, there are many other Leopard pump alternatives available right now. Here are a few I've come across in all my online window shopping adventures. :)


Have a lovely day!

Yes Please!!!

Tory Burch Erin Dress
 

I recently had the opportunity to try this dress on and it is most definitely at the top of my wish list now...love, love, love! The fit is divine, the print is whimsical but not too 'young' (imo), plus it is lined and feels wonderful against the skin. What's not to love (other than the price that is)?

P.S. It looks absolutely lovely paired with the Stacked Strap Heels from Anthropologie...a perfect neutral shoe that does not disappoint IRL. :)
