I love J Crew’s Cece leather ballet flats (66408, $138). This color — dazzling sun — are currently $89.99 in-store.
Size 7.5 – One of the rare J Crew shoes that fit my true shoe size.
The color is bright, but not blindingly electric. It’s not quite a neon, but almost.
Something didn’t feel like a complete match for this color and me, but I brought them home anyway. I could run a marathon in the Ceces, y’know, figure of speech-wise. I figured I’d be silly to pass them up for $60 and the whole pop of color thing for an outfit.
Once I got them home I realized the color makes them look like footies on me. Footie socks. Fashionable bootcovers I might put on over another shoe to step inside someone’s house. Like the plumbers that came by erroneously last week.
Still love the shoe.
This pair did squeak a lot, which I don’t recall w/my other Ceces’ first steps. I didn’t feel like they would need to be broken-in. They would’ve just needed some Band-Aid blister block.
