L-R newest to oldest:
At right, my Italian sandals purchased 8 years ago and worn each summer
Middle are the Clarks classics, so comfortable and now faded to a sort of orange
Left, newest by Klogs, nice and cushy on my feet when I am at work
You may remember that I have a thing for red shoes. If they come in red, that's always my preference. This dates back to being a tiny person with Christopher Robin style buckle shoes, in red of course. So it was an early imprinting.
Recently I was in a store in downtown Rockland (which is such a hip town), The Black Parrot, which is a unique store where everything is overpriced. Everything from books on architecture to clothing to Marimekko bags to hair accessories to interesting kitchen stuff. So it's great looking, but nothing that fits my budget. Usually.
Mine are the Danskos at right
Except for when I spotted a rack of shoes in the back at 60% off. And found these. And they had my size (amazing! I am a size 9 US or 39-40 Euro, like most people it seems). So I had to buy them.
They are the happiest shoes ever, made by Camper, and they match all the beautiful skirts I have been sewing this summer. They may be my best score to date.
OK now I need to get back to my blogging break in which I scramble to find time to do my school stuff, house stuff, kid stuff and family stuff! But I couldn't wait to tell you!
