OK. Pink patent heels can be a bit much, even for me — but do you see the heels on these, ladies? Love the striped, stacked heels so much that I’d find a way to make pink work. They would be lovely with otherwise sedate colors — gray, navy, black, possibly even brown — and … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Karolina Strawberry Patent Heels
Reader J wonders how one can walk quietly in heels… One problem I struggle with is finding shoes that don’t echo down the hallway every time I take a step. As a legal assistant, I spend a lot of time running to the courthouse to file papers, etc., and I’m very conscious of the fact … Read More about Tiptoeing Through the Tulips: How to Walk Quietly in Heels
I’ve been thinking for a while about expanding the site to include shopping guides on those dead-simple basics that every woman needs and buys (and has definite opinions about) but, to be honest, aren’t that much fun to blog about. (A navy Theory suit? A pair of black heels? Yawn.) (Pictured: Stuart Weitzman – Madison … Read More about Introducing the Corporette Guide to Comfortable Heels
These are our favorite coffee breaks that we featured in 2010!
Reader J wonders: I have a question I’d love to see addressed on your blog (or maybe you can just give me your $.02): can I wear riding boots to work? If so, how? I am in court every day, but it’s juvie so it’s not like I have to wear a suit every day. … Read More about Riding Boots … to the Office?
Corporette commenters have sung the praises of these $30 wedges for a while (including today), but I don’t think we’ve ever featured them properly on the site. To hear the commenters tell it: They’re comfortable. They’re versatile. (And they come in purple suede, which you know I love.) They’re $30 at Target.com. Women’s Merona® Myka … Read More about Coffee Break: Myka Suede Wedge Shoes
The one shoe I find myself wearing a ton of this season is my heeled oxford pumps — they work with tights, they work with trousers. I’m loving the look of these Cole Haan pumps — they have the “Air” cushioning, they have a platform, and they’re part of the Maria Sharapova collection, all of … Read More about Coffee Break: Air Swan Oxford Pump
I saw this shoe mentioned somewhere recently as one of the highest-rated heels for comfort, and have had my eye on it. The “smokey teal” color, pictured, is particularly fun — but it also comes in the more sedate black, brown, and “camel.” The shoe is normally $130, but with the Cyber-Monday deals going on … Read More about Coffee Break: Barbarella Pump Wave
We’re always a fan of the short ankle-high boots — they’re perfect beneath pants all fall and winter long. We like the Nike Air technology in these simple Cole Haan boots, and we like the variety of sizes still available even though they’re marked down — they were $298, now $161.46 at Sierra Trading Post. … Read More about Coffee Break: Lynda Short Boots
We’re liking the look of these buckled pumps from Sigerson Morrison — they’re edgy without being unacceptable for an office. Love the slightly pointed toe, as well as the covered heel, and the diagonal buckle strikes us as kinda fierce. (We think the black is best for the office, but they are available in red … Read More about Coffee Break: Sigerson Morrison Buckled Pumps
Nordstrom’s shoe clearance sale is underway, and we’re liking these simple open-toes by Stuart Weitzman, available in both “cognac tartaruga” (pictured) and navy patent. Like the button detail, like the patent, like the general look. The shoes were $335, now marked to $199.90 at Nordstrom (lots of sizes still left). Stuart Weitzman ‘Dabba’ Pump N.B. … Read More about Coffee Break: Dabba Pump
We are loving these shoes from Sofft as a vintagey alternative to a regular pump. The super high vamp makes them very walkable, but we think the way the vamp dips down will be more attractive than, say, a Mary Jane or t-strap shoe. For some reason, we’re seeing them with a swingy A-line skirt. … Read More about Coffee Break: Gaige Pumps
