^YAY! T-Straps are classy and business-appropriate. Only neg, ASOS shoes take awhile to break in, imho.

Greetings, xkrissax. Those shoes in Post #601 are good enough to wear almost anywhere. So my answer is Big Yay! to wear anywhere- including the office. Just don't wear these pumps to rock concerts, demolition derbies, or any of those functions where crazy young folks gather 'round.

Big yay to those pumps. Dress and shop with confidence!

Yay from me, they are quite plain but cute, chunky heel means they're probably very comfy, I'd say you'll get a lot of wear out of them

You guys are gonna hate me, but I didn't end up getting the YSL shoes
So, at one point I decided to ignore the shoes and instead purchase one of the Balenciaga egyptofunk sweaters. By the time I was ready to make the Balenciaga purchase, they had sold out (I'm such a moron. I called like on Wednesday of last week thinking they'd still have them but nothing ). It was also too late to purchase the YSL shoes because the netaporter sale ended earlier. Sigh, it is what it is. I'm such an idiot lol.

All we do here is sway interest. The actual clothing buying decisions ultimately come down to the person seeking opinions on fashions. We can only do so much.

The front design of the coat (Post #611) throws me off. That sort of on-the-side detail on front would look great on a motorcycle jacket, but I'm not feeling it for this. Don't just get this (if you do) because it is different looking. This is different-bad. The front alone is the deal breaker. So Nay! is my final verdict. Someone else may convince you otherwise, but you're not getting a convincing from me regarding this coat.

I feel like for whatever price you are paying for that coat you should buy something a little more timeless.. the coat to me reads a little busy and trendy.

^ I agree with this post. Definitely not a staple. but if you don't want it for a staple and really like it then I would get it. Personally, I don't like the design on the front.
