InStyle Got It Right


I picked up the most recent edition of InStyle at Kroger today, having recently discontinued my multi-year subscription. I had been feeling that the magazine was a little unapproachable for me, and two, I saw an article about which bottled water celebrities were drinking...and well, that was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. Who frickin' cares?!

In my six month or so hiatus, they have a bit of a new look with articles like "Hey, here's how to wear this jacket three ways." The sheer volume of pages devoted to ads is still obnoxious, but all-in-all, I enjoyed my purchase. I'm still mad about the water thing though, so I'm not renewing just yet.

However, in the Uma Thurman fall fashion edition, I particularly enjoyed the section on "Deals and Steals" that featured this shoe from Aldo. It looks so designerey and for $100, no less. That's still not cheap, but the heel looks to be a not-too-sky-high-wearable height and this is a good transitional shoe from dress to jeans. A note of warning, if you have short legs, you may wanna just stick to wearing a pair like this with jeans. That top strap is gonna cut your leg off at the ankle and do you NO favors.

Here are some other dressy numbers from the Aldo site that I like for fall: another heel in the vein as the one above and sass up a t-shirt-and-jeans outfit with this purple guy.
