We spent quite a bit of time talking about pastel nail polish at PurseBlog yesterday, but if that’s just not your type of thing, we understand.

Sometimes, a piece of clothing or pair of shoes is so perfectly, sublimely named that it explains everything you need to know about what the designer was thinking and how the piece should be styled. That’s exactly the case with this week’s Best Bet, the Zimmermann Weekend Booties. I can see them with a pair of cutoffs, a loose tank top and a bucket bag as we speak, and for under $500, this is a pair of shoes you can wear nearly year-round. Read More...
