Reader Erika emailed me this request:
I have not historically worn navy or dark blue skirts, feeling they looked too preppy or stuffy on me. Now, however, I am finding navy skirts in the stores that are not only cute, but well-made. I am a bit lost on how to style navy skirts specifically, especially what kind of leggings or tights colors to wear with them, and how to coordinate a top without ending up looking like I’m wearing something that belongs on a schoolgirl. I prefer a more office casual kind of style, with fun or artistic accessories and touches, rather than polished or preppy.

Reader Kelly e-mailed me this request:
I would love to wear heels and when I was younger and without scoliosis I did; now they seem to be a thing of the past though I keep trying. Could you do a post about flats? Specifically how to make them look good with dresses ( I don’t think they do) or anything for that matter.
So I’ve written a bit about flats and have several posts in the archive with visual examples, and I sent those along to Kelly:
- This post talks about making flats work with fancy dresses
- This covers balancing shoes and shorts
But let’s talk about flats with dresses. Of the non-fancy variety. And I can hear many of you scoffing through your computer screens as I am a confirmed heels lover myself, but at least give me a shot!

Keilexandra popped this question into the suggestion box:
I’d love to see a post on how to “balance” foot size, both small and large. Especially small! At 5’2.5″ and 120 lbs, I feel like my size 5 feet are disproportionately small. This is especially apparent when I wear heels or high-vamp shoes (e.g. oxfords, TOMS), and even more so now that I am finally spending money on good-quality shoes in my size rather than a size too large. Wearing shoes that fit is much more comfortable, but it also makes my feet look smaller… and unlike most women, I think my feet are already small enough!
