I ran into Angie shopping for this pair of wedge sandal booties. I normally wouldn't have gone for them, but the color is different enough from my usual fare that I think it will end up being a nice counterpoint and therefore very wearable. It also is a very near match to my new favorite J. Crew Teddie cropped flared trousers. They are not what you would call flattering, but they feel just right to me; and I've been wearing them quite a bit as a result.

I've also worn them with loafers in brown patent, which doesn't "close the gap" at all and is even LESS conventionally flattering, but I'm making no apologies. Pic two, I've got my tummy on display with a fitted, tucked turtleneck, and my legs shortened with cropped flared trousers and loafers. But, I still felt happy and stylish in this with the tweed Pendelton blazer adding a bit of pastel green.

Thoughts? Hate it? Love it? Tips for improvement?
