Sometimes You Just Need a Pop of Color!

Website glitch? Last week, on a routine visit to, I noticed that a beautiful pair of Elsie suede d’Orsay pumps in flame (a bright orange hue) was significantly marked down to around $50 after the sale-on-sale discount at the time. What the what? It was quite odd for J.Crew to drop the price of a fairly new style by so much (about 80% off), so I purchased these beauties before they changed their minds. And, they eventually did. Those pumps are back at their full-price of $255.

I wasn’t shopping for these pumps when I visited the site that day, but sometimes you just need a pop of color, right? I’m convinced that’s what the fashion universe was trying to telling me with this bargain find. I already have plans to wear these with a navy jumpsuit I found on clearance in Madewell recently.

Sizing? J.Crew recommends sizing down a 1/2 size in this Elsie d’Orsay pump, but I have never had to do that. I wear my usual size 8 in the Elsie pumps and the Elsie d’Orsay pumps. They fit to true to size for me.

What’s your favorite color pop?
