Diva Hauls: 9&CO Smoking Flats

Happy Friday All!
I recently went to my local JC Penny to peruse their latest offerings (FYI check out their Worthington Collection), and these 9&CO JJ Drum brocade smoking flats stopped me in my tracks. I entertained myself  by trying them on with no intent on buying them. That was until I asked the sales associate how many pairs they had left in my size (so you know, I can come back and get them), and I had the only pair on my feet. So you know that meant they went home with me :). Check out detailed pictures below.

Trending Thursday:Transparent Combat Boots

Dirty Laundry $49.00
The utilitarian staple has a new look this fall. Clear combat boots are a trend that entered the arena quietly. Yet, they've been spotted in local urban fashion stores and online. The prices are affordable, so you will not have to invest in this trend. Because of the boot being so trendy, and affordable, you won't feel (too) guilty about pushing them in the back of you closet next fall.
