I snatched up the second to last pair of size 7's at Target last week. Perfectly sensible. You're shaking your head. These will be just lovely with black tights (or plum, or houndstooth gray and black. . .) or under a wool wide leg pant, or with a dark denim pencil skirt on Fridays. Oh the possibilities! The hint of a platform actually makes these shoes quite wearable. As does the $26.99 price. Yay for teacher chic!
