I am still working on that review of the Black Halo Jackie Sheath Dress but think 40% off is a good price for a great multi-purpose dress. It will require a hem for those of you close to my height (I am 5’2 and took off about 3 inches in length).

I wouldn’t know where to store another handbag but the Kate Spade Bow Harmony Tote is seriously testing my resolve. It is the same print as my favorite KS skirt and I even like the size. And the Kate Spade Cedar Street Harmony Tote reminds me of bags in this review and the sale price is very reasonable. Just two more items for your consideration.

Picks: I ordered,  loved, and kept the Estate Shimmer Necklace and Modern Classic Pearl & Chain Necklace (so much so I had to include them in this post). Also liking the Asymmetrical Button Jacket which already has three positive reviews online.

The Laddy Quilted Leather Ballet Flats were part of an order from several weeks ago and I wanted to share a few pictures and some thoughts with regard to these simple classics. I did not keep them because I thought the black patent cap toe was too shiny a contrast to the quilted beige body but the shoe earned countless positive reviews online so it’s obviously found fans elsewhere.

The quality is fair for $88. If you are between sizes, you should try the smaller of two sizes. I normally wear 6.5/7 in shoes and found the size 7 to be slightly loose and imagine it will stretch even more with wear.

It’s a simple shoe with few frills which I appreciated. The toe is slightly pointed which could pose a problem for those with wide feet but as someone with slightly wider feet, I did not encounter any issues myself.

Retailer: Club Monaco
Discount: New styles added to sale and clearance. New subscribers to CM’s newsletter will receive a unique 15% off code and those with .edu e-mail addresses can get a code for 20% off (these offers cannot be combined).

I am not usually drawn to pieces with faux fur or fur but was strangely drawn to the
Faux-Fur Hem Jacket. I’ll be waiting for online reviews before attempting to place an order.
