    Really Petite

    I really like the gray suede Cole Haans but their size 5's are too big for me! I just ordered the Ann Taylor granite pumps in size 5- hope they fit!

    I'm suprised the size 5 Cole Haan's fit you…are they loose?

    Really Petite – The size 5 Cole Haans are usually perfect for me. The closed toes, maybe even a little small, but stretched out with wear. The Ann Taylors were a tad too big, and too wide for me in size 5 (but my feet are narrow)

    Jen – Of course! Fantastic outfit!

    I really really want a pair of Cole Haans pumps. They look gorgoeus. They cost a little more than what I'd like to spend on a pair of shoes. I want them everytime I see them on your post. Have a great weekend! Thank you for mention my giveaway.

    Ooooooh! Love those pumps! I am going to try one of the chocolate pairs and see if I can find my "nude" shoe. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Yes, I've been wanting a pair of nude Cole Haan peep-toe slingbacks ever since I started following AN's blog. I don't think I've ever spent more than $150 on shoes. I might have to wander over to Holt Renfrew (Canada) for a peek. If they are TTS I'd be a 6 or 6.5.

    I think following these blogs is costing me money. I keep finding myself "needing" things. :)

    The aesthetics of these shoes remind me Louboutin Simple Pump http://www.barneys.com/Simple%20Pump%2085/159016197,default,pd.html

    Since my only option I online order, I would appreciate the feedback regarding the comfort of these shoes as compare to Cole Haan Carma. Unlike from Carma, they do not have a mini platform… Are they as comfortable as Carma for everyday use? Thank you.

    HM63 – I know, we're a bad influence =P

    Russian Chic – I have not had the opportunity to try on the Cole Haan Talia pump, so I don't know the comfort compared to the Carma pump. I've found Cole Haan shoes to be quite comfortable, no matter the style, so I'm assuming they will be just fine.
