Review: Elsie pumps with enamel heel


What: Elsie pumps with enamel heels by J.Crew

Season: Summer 2015

Material: 100% suede outer, 100% leather lining and sole


Quality: Excellent! I love the rose ash color, very autumnal. The enamel heels are thinner than usual, very pointy but oh so pretty and manageable. No toe cleavage.

Fit: True to size

Pros: The pretty color, the comfortable heel, the classic look

Cons: The price but there’s a sale going on now

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper!

Review: Dulci Suede Kitten Heels

What: Dulci Suede Kitten Heels by J.Crew


Season: Winter 2014

Material: 100% suede outer, leather lining and man-made sole.


Quality: Very good! The suede is soft, rich cinnamon color, very manageable heel.


Fit: Sizing is off (again!). 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.

Review: Collection Caged Bow pumps

I have a thing for ankle-strap shoes and booties and the caged bow pumps by J.Crew looked too good to pass on.  My review below.


What: Collection Caged Bow pumps by J.Crew

Season: Winter 2014

Material: Satin and suede upper, 100% leather lining and sole. Some elastic fabric to tie the shoes


Quality: Very good, as far a material goes. Was not too crazy about he tying fabric, just seemed off to me. The shoes are gorgeous otherwise, I love the subtle contrast between the navy satin againts the black suede. And the caged look makes the pair stand out.

Fit: True to size.  Loved the heel height , the caged look…very cute, but the tying ribbon…


Sissi’s verdict: I just could not get past the tying ribbon…seemed like some type of elastic material and it was a deal break. I would advise to substitute the ribbon for something else, maybe some leather lacets. At that price, I decided to return.  Do you have these cute pumps? Please share!
