Emerald & Trench (+ J. Crew Mona Patent Mary Janes Review)

May 11, 2013

I wrote a post last month on the topic of my waning desire to own things and thoroughly enjoyed the comments I received in response. Thank you all for taking the time to indulge my curiosity.  

Burberry London  Short Technical Cotton Trench Coat (also here and here) | Anna Dello Russo for H&M Emerald Necklace | Ann Taylor Silk Charmeuse Long Sleeve Legacy Blouse (no longer available) | J. Crew Toothpick Cord in Ribbon Bow Print (Crewcuts version here) | Ann Taylor Exotic Perfect Skinny Belt | Tory Burch Daria Top-Handle Satchel Bag | J. Crew Mona Patent Mary Janes
A few words about J. Crew's Mona Patent Mary Janes; they are currently sold out online (after going on sale earlier this year) but I am fairly certain they will be re-released in the fall in new colors. Those of you interested in last year's colors can probably find them on ebay at a discount.

Like most J. Crew shoes, the Mona Patent Mary Janes run smaller than shoes made by other American retailers. I am normally between sizes 6.5 and 7, take a size 7 in most J. Crew styles, and the Mona Mary Janes fit me in a size 7.5.

The shoes are moderately comfortable for 3.75-in heels and the straps keep the shoes securely on my feet. During the break-in period, if you have wider feet like I do, apply moleskin to the parts of your feet where you feel the most friction to avoid blisters.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
