I get a lot of questions on how to tuck blouses into skirts without getting unsightly visible lines. As you can see up above, I’m a victim of this as well.

And oh, the Ivanka Trump leopard pumps from this post arrived and were returned. The heel, measured from the back, was higher than expected at 4 inches, and the platform was hard for me to walk in.

The pricier Diane Von Furstenberg April pumps have a similar, stable heel, and are currently on sale in sizes 6-10 (reviewers say they run small).
