Having a mild obsession with J.Crew is no new feat for any college girl. The quintessential tortoise claw clips, pastel pixie pants, and silky frocks are wardrobe staples for the young, and young at heart. With a hint of flair and an underlying attitude of sophistication, J.Crew speaks to mothers and daughters alike and can't help but dominate a good portion of my personal wardrobe.
What I'm trying to say is that this love affair is nothing new. Then came the Etta Pump.
They've been floating all over Pinterest since Fall, the chunky almost 4in. pumps everyone's been drooling over. Calf-hair, cap-toe, and a whole lot of creativity from the J.Crew shoe designers have resulted in a vast array of eclectic combos on this classic heel. The best part? They're marketed as the heels for girls who only wear flats. Although at barely 5'2" I've never been that girl, there's little to dislike about a heel that boasts comfort.
Dying to get your pretty little toes into these pumps? I recently snagged the champagne and black cap-toe combo and couldn't be more in love. Although many of the popular variations are sold out online, eBay seems to be a hotbed for the Etta.
During a quick search for a size 7, over 85 results flashed on my screen. From jeweled sequins to glittery tweed, classic patent to snakeskin, the combos are endless.
A truly transitional piece, the Etta can take you from internship to dinner that night and everywhere in between. A quintessential professional shoe with a twist, I won't be leaving home without these pretties for my upcoming interviews in NYC.
Remember, Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life.
