This is such a frilly skirt that I can only pull it out when I'm feeling extra girly. I recently added these Valentino flats to my shoe collection, and I felt so giddy that I wanted to go a-la Elle Woods. This embellished top has been in my wardrobe for a long time, and typical of most J.Crew items, its just as wearable now as it was initially. I love that about J.Crew tops. Most of the blouses I get from there, especially the silk ones last me years. And going back to my rockstud flats (gidddyyyyy)..being that pink is not my first choice color, I was nervous about choosing these. However, I own the neon yellow heel version of these, and they add a great pop of color. I think these pink beauties will serve the same purpose with black, grey and navy outfits in the Fall/Winter months. If you are thinking about purchasing Valentinos, I say DO IT! They are the most comfortable.
