White and Silver

I think I have mentioned before that I was looking for a pair of white jeans and silver shoes.  Of course, I could look for them somewhere else but since I already knew the fit, I decided to order from J.Crew, using the 30% off CARDSTYLE promo.

I have previously ordered a few pairs of midrise toothpicks and I was hoping the white jeans would fit the same.  You can check my reviews of dark denim HERE and cords HERE.

They do.  I love the fit. The midrise is high enough to contain the muffin top...

avert your eyes if you are sensitive ;)

But not too high to result in 'long flat butt', the bane of my existence...

close your eyes again...

This is a size 28, which is one size up from my matchstick size.  I wear 4 in pencil skirts and trousers. They are very comfortable and I like the feel of the denim. Not sure if they will stretch out and sag but my cords and dark jeans don't, so let's hope for the best. 

you can look now...

The ankle length is perfect to show off your shoes.

Speaking of shoes...


Miri midheel pumps
I was seriously lacking silver metallic shoes.  They are the 2013 new black and you cannot live without a pair of black pumps, can you?  These puppies are not cheap, even with a discount, but the are leather lined with leather soles and sensible, but not frumpy, 2 7/8 heel.  I kind of wish they were pointy but round is more comfortable.

I ordered my regular 8.5 and they are a perfect fit. When I first put them on they felt a little tight but even after only few minutes they adjusted to my feet.  This is perfect, because while nobody wants shoes that are too tight, I also hate the slip heel.  They seem stable and comfortable, as far as narrow heels go.

in emergency, use as a mirror
The silver is very shiny and indeed, they are not kidding when they say 'mirrored'.  I like that, as they definitely bring sparkle to any outfit, but just wanted to let you know that it is not subtle, matte silver.

That's all folks!

Do you own silver shoes?

Anybody can please tell me that those toothpicks will not stretch? Well, if they do stretch also tell me before I wear them and it is too late...

I am off to visit my mother and I will be back on 5/15.  Most likely I will not have time to post or comment much, so I will 'see' you when I came back, hopefully with some good pictures!

  1. The white and silver is super! Love those shoes. Yup I do have silver shoes, they are chie mihara that I bought to wear to a wedding two years ago, I have them put away with my "wedding things" ie fancy things I don't wear but want to keep, including my wedding dress.
    I hope you have an excellent trip and that you enjoy the time with your Mom!
    Travel safe!

  4. I love those shoes in metallic silver! I have them in black and they are a great basic. Probably overpriced for a plain black shoe, but they have that "just right" quality about them that is hard for me to find. But for the silver, those are standouts and worth the money IMO. I like them with the white denim. I don't have any Toothpicks, the calves are too tight on me which I find ridiculous because my calves aren't that big. So I couldn't say if they will stretch, but I hope someone can answer that for you. Hope you have a great trip!

  5. Great look! I've been debating white jeans and it's great to see these on you - I think the rise would be right for me too. I do have mirror metallic pumps and happen to be wearing them today! I got mine for a steal at Target (http://www.target.com/p/women-s-mossimo-vivian-pointy-heel-silver/-/A-14304738#prodSlot=large_1_6). They are not very comfortable but I do like the look.

  6. Love these jeans and shoes on you! I have been eying the metallic ballet flats. The Valentina heels just don't fit me well.

  7. Love the jeans and top and shoes on you too. You have not even an inch of muffin top. I have been cursed with the "long flat butt" - there is no evidence of this on you? are they that good??and am always looking for the uplift. You've sold me.

  9. You look great in the white jeans! The silver and white look so chic and fresh! I scored the silver metallic in the Biella loafers. My they go with everything. It's almost like the silver color is the new nude. Anyway, have a safe trip and enjoy your ime with your mom.

  11. You're so funny with the "avert your eyes" bit but totally unnecessary. The sequins caught my eyes of course but you look great in the white jeans. I have the same silver pumps and I don't know if I got lucky with a pair that was a "factory reject" or what but mine were totally comfortable first time wearing them, no breaking in needed at all and plenty wide enough in the toe area for my super wide tootsies. I love them.

  14. I've always loved metallics and consider all of them neutrals -- silver, gold, rose gold. The top looks great with white jeans... which look fabulous on you!! And you are much too critical of yourself -- if I had your middle, I'd be wearing bikinis!!!

    I think the matchsticks are much more comfortable, but I do have toothpicks also and I always have to size up one. I am quite sure the toothpicks do not stretch out at all in the waist; if they stretch in other areas they don't stretch out much.

    Have a great trip!
