I happened to be on the Anthropologie site over the weekend and it was a 20% off day so I ordered some shoes to try. Two pairs are keepers, both Kelsi Dagger. (I can't collect from Anthro so included links)

The black loafers are amazingly comfortable. The front is wide enough, the heel doesn't slip and there are no gaps at the side, which sometimes happens with flats. Absolutely a keep....I will be wearing these ASAP!


The mustard slingback is also comfortable right out of the box. I've had shoes in this color in the past and found it to be very versatile. The suede is very nice and the heel height quite reasonable.


I tried 2 others that didn't work for me, a burgundy suede ankle strap that gaped at the sides and a Seychelles cognac bootie that was too small all over. I'm not trying the next size as I decided it is just 'meh' on me. I will wait and shop for cognac/tan booties in person. Our Dillards (headquartered here) has a very nice shoe department.

Two out of four when it comes to fitting shoes isn't bad at all! The packing slip said no in store returns but they do free returns on shoes so they can just go to the post office along with my returns to Nordstrom!

I was hopeful about the black patent Hispanitas but the fit wasn't great. It was snug in the front though not terribly so. But the top edge was a deal breaker. It wasn't at all tight but really dug in with each step. Even with socks on it was painful so these go back.

I am still waiting on the red JC loafers. If these don't work I will seek out other styles of shoes or boots because I really want something in red. If anyone sees any fab red shoes please let me know!
