What: Aria Jeweled Pumps by Tory Burch
Material: 100% satin upper, leather lining and sole
Quality: Excellent! The heel is manageable (had them on for over four hours and felt just fine), the pointed toes scream sharp and classy while the crystal bow is a sweet addition for sparkle without being tacky. Perfect! I’ve worn with a dress and a skirt so far, and received lots of compliments.
Fit: True to size
Sissi’s verdict: Keeper!! The pumps definitely elevate your outfit, and your feet ;)

I found this fashion house while perusing instagram for inspiration on wax-made clutches. The good news: the store is located in Cotonou, Benin but ships worldwide. The sad news: there are only eight items listed now on her etsy store. There may be more coming…:) Also, her website needs to upgrade, but she definitely has some interesting accessories to offer :) Will keep you posted if I get more info on this store.
I was so excited to get these loafers when they went on sale. Though the quality is good, I was a little disappointed by the off sizing. My full review below.
What: Collection Sofie Calf Hair loafers by J.Crew
Material: 100% calf hair outer, leather lining and sole.
Quality: Very good! The calf hair and loafer style are all nicely done, but the sizing is off.
Fit: I’d say the shoes run half a size bigger than normal.
Sissi’s verdict: Return. I’d recommend half a size down if you are considering.
