Corso Como Dailey Ballet Flat

Get a leg (or foot) up on one of Fall’s hottest trends: Gray. Gray is the neutral of choice this coming season for clothes, shoes, bags, you name it. Not only are these chic quilted ballet flats from Corso Como right on trend, but they are ultra comfortable, hand-assembled in Brazil and a portion of each purchase is donated to charity. We love the unique side cutout which gives them real personality.

Juicy Couture Stretch Wool Shift

It’s been a while since we shopped for a back to school outfit, but if we were still in the market for one, this wool shift would be at the top of our list. With a strong nod towards ’60s mod style, this short sleeve empire waist dress from Juicy Couture is finished with gold buttons and a figure flattering shape. Wear it with tights and knee high boots or maryjanes for a simple, sexy and sophisticated look. And of course, you need not be headed back to school to wear it.
