Sorry for the blog being down Friday, I hope the changes I made will make it faster while I switch to a new host in the coming weeks. As such, we’ll interrupt regularly scheduled design broadcasting to focus on fashion again (and be sure to go back and ready the Fashion Friday post that was “up” Friday).
Anywhoo, I love summer shoes, even though I have a crazy long middle toe that I don’t love showing off. Sandals ARE my jam and so when I find good ones I love sharing. Last week I bought the pair of Ancient Greek sandals I featured in a post a few weeks ago. Simple and chic I figured they would match everything and my well loved and worn gold flat sandals (Target, $19.99) had seen better days. A sandal upgrade, if you will.
I have NEVER had a pair of new leather sandals that I could wear two days in a row, walking for hours, and not have a blister, sore spot… ANYTHING. Ridiculously comfy! Typically with new shoes you start out your inaugural wear all sassy and “I’m so hot in my new shoes” only to be begging strangers for a piggy back home while limping like Quasimodo down the sidewalk hours later. I’ve even pulled a Britney and walked home barefoot before. There is NOTHING less sexy than watching a girl walk in painful shoes. So I had to tell you about these, which are designed by a former Balenciaga and LV footwear designer Christina Martini and made by hand in Greece.
And their buckles are little wings. It really does not get any better.
Not to mention in the newest Bazaar I saw them featured like, 10 times! Editors love them too. There are a few places to get them: Shopbop, Matches and their own website, but here are some of my faves. I’ll take them ALL, please:
