To kick off my week of vacay, I decided to do some shopping and check out the new LOFT concept store that opened up last month on Michigan Ave. I love a good concept store – the layout was fresh and inviting with a glass staircase right in the center that led up to an entire floor of petites. The fitting rooms were equipped with flattering lighting (why can’t all stores figure this out??!) and cool prints of Chicago landmarks. I wasn’t looking for anything particular but zeroed in on the Talia Low Heel Sandal right away. They are a mirror image of the Sam Edelman version I’d been eyeing up. I snagged the last pair in my size! I’m obsessed with the gold heel and the padded insole is a savior for my always achy feet. I will be wearing these with everything this summer. They’ll give me just a smidge of height in a maxi dress, dress up shorts and look amazing with skinny black pants. I’ll even pair them with this romper I also bought at the LOFT. I KNOW, a onesie! Who am I? I’m now contemplating the black and silver pair because they are just so perfect – and a fab deal at $55.
