Katie G. writes: "Hello again, Outblush Ladies! You did such an awesome job of finding me "grad school interview outfits in South Carolina" back in March, I thought I'd ask for your help again! Grad school is going WONDERFULLY, but now I need a big girl wardrobe to match my big girl life. I practically LIVE in flats for a "business casual yet comfortable" look while I'm walking all over campus for work and class, but I'm on the hunt for some dressier black flats. I love the ballet flats look, but I'm hoping for some more "structured" flats that would look appropriate with wrap dresses, pencil skirts, etc. I'm a size 7 and I would really love not to spend more than $30 ($40 if I have to). Also, if you happen to stumble across some inexpensive knockoffs of the fabulous two-toned quilted Chanel Flats in your travels, let me know (they are the Aspire to my Acquire). As always, thank you!"
