Summer Wearing

Just go ahead and tell on yourself

July 31, 2014

After spending the past six months bitching and moaning about how much I hate the rebirth of the slide (sandal), I thought it only right to come on here and confess I caved and bought a pair.

They’re good. They’re really good. This crow sandwich isn’t half bad either.

In the ultimate obscenity I wore them out with a dress to breakfast the other day. There’s something about rocking a hideous shoe in the face of all the naysayers that just screams FREEDOM. Be damned if I wouldn’t pick up a back-up if they weren’t sold out everywhere.

So here’s to my 20-something year old self re-emerging in the slide. Those were the days. Who am I kidding? No they weren’t.

    I saw these in another pic a little while back…and recalled the athletic slide rant from earlier in the year. Too funny! Just don’t let me catch you in a pair of crocs! I think I ate a similar batch of crow back when skinny jeans came on the scene and I was appalled…and then I wasn’t. It’s a woman’s right to change her mind!

      You know it better than anyone! I was losing my shit, but couldn’t get these out of my mind. Then I saw them with a wrap dress and knew I was in deep trouble, but when Mara Hoffman sauntered by wearing them at her sale in LA I was down for the count. She helped me pick out some pants and I spent half of those minutes staring at her shoes. Uh…? LOL!

      Insert foot in mouth?

    I love them. I wanted the tan pair but can’t justify the cost with the very few days I could actually wear them here. Although I’m wondering if you could wear them with jeans and marled socks – just go 90’s all the way.

      Jenn they are seriously awesome. Great arch support, so comfortable and actually look really good with all kinds of things: jeans, skirts, shorts, dresses. I can’t even believe I’m saying it. My hairstylist has the tan pair and they’re pretty sweet. They form to your foot so if you wore with socks it would probably stretch them out for when you wanted to default back to summer days. Sometimes I wear them when I’m just sitting at my desk.

      It’s all MARA HOFFMAN’S FAULT!

      Not sure what that means? NO ONE TELLS ME WHAT TO DO.

      ‘cept my mama.
