Modern Cinderella Shoes – Boden Embellished Slippers

As you may have noticed, Commandress is getting a makeover! While we’re wrapping that up, we’re going to share a series short posts about quick & easy updates for your wardrobe.

Today we’re featuring a pointy toe flat that’s so cute – it’s everything a shoe should be.

Boden Embellished Slipper - glass beading on British Tweed

The glass beading. The iridescence. The cool colors. The British tweed. It’s all so eye-catching – and fun!

The Boden Embellished Slippers are $148 in British Tweed, Navy Satin (shown below) or Elderberry Satin.

I’d be delighted to wear any of these colors to dress up my jeans or other basics throughout the fall and winter!

Pour La Victoire Keon Studded Black Booties

As you may have noticed, Commandress is getting a makeover! While we’re wrapping that up, we’re going to share a series short posts about quick & easy updates for your wardrobe.

While packing for a midwinter trip to New York a couple years ago, I realized that I didn’t have any shoes that were both stylish and appropriate for hours spent walking around town in very cold weather.

You just don’t need that kind of shoe in Atlanta – when the weather is really bad here, I tend to (1) stay indoors; or (2) overdo it by wearing my hiking boots.

It was too late to find new shoes for my trip, so I decided to take my time looking for a great pair of shoes on a fantastic sale.

Here’s what I found – and I’m happy to report that I love them and that they’re still available – on sale and in a lot of sizes.


Pour La Victoire Keen Studded Black Flat Booties


These Pour La Victoire boots have proven themselves to be very versatile, durable and very comfortable. There’s enough room for a cozy pair of SmartWool socks in my regular size.

The Pour La Victoire Keen Studded Black Booties are $157.99 (regularly $395) from 6pm or Amazon.

F is for Friday & Flamingos – From Flamingo Dresses to Flamingo Sandals & More

Remember the post about pineapples from last month? This summer, flamingos are as hot, if not hotter, than pineapples.

Flamingos are no longer relegated to yard art. When I was out running errands a couple days ago, I saw another shopper wearing the cutest flamingo shirt. Later that day, I stopped to admire a flamingo print top in a boutique. It’s time to wear flamingos, ladies!

Whether you want to wear flamingos, carry flamingos or sleep on flamingo sheets,
there is something for everyone who loves the bird that symbolizes beauty, grace and balance.

You could spend hours – if not days – hunting for the perfect flamingo dress, top, necklace, etc. – so today’s post is an assembly of the best of the best on two collages – all decorated with flamingos.
