I don’t know how this happens, but when I go shopping I always end up liking the most expensive things. It’s not like I’m shopping for designer brands only. I just walk around and when something catches my eye, I gravitate towards it. Its only when I look at the tag, that I realize that the bag I LOVE is a $489 Marc by Marc Jacobs bag.
When I’m “window shopping” online I just fall in love first by the looks of something, and then get horrified at the sticker price. That’s when I say “Who Cares!” and just go with it, because I’m not actually buying anything.
In my blog Getting Ready for Summer I used a beautiful pair of Jeweled Vera Wang sandals in my Polyvore set. The same thing happened to me that always does. I fell in love with them before I saw the price. When I saw the price and the label, I realized that I would never own those sandals. I could only ever lust after those sandals.
I’ve purchased a new pair of jeweled flat sandals every summer for the past 5 years. They are just a staple that I can’t do without. I wear them with everything. They’re like jewelry for my feet. There are times during the summer whenI don’t have time to give myself a pedicure. When my toenails are bare, my feet still look pretty in sandals like these. They’re also great for days when you spend lots of time on your feet. In a perfect world I would always be wearing gorgeous heels, but I have two small children who I have to run after. I spend lots of time bending over picking up things off the floor. Heels aren’t a practical option for me on the crazy. busy days. These are.
Just in case you were wondering, they look great with just about anything. Linen slacks, jeans, a maxi dress/skirt, shorts. You name it, chances are these sandals will work.
All of the sandals I choose are under $100. I know I don’t have a traditional office job. I work as a radio DJ, so there are few people who see me, and my office is very casual. I can get away with wearing shoes like this to work. If you can’t, think of them as the perfect weekend accessory. Comfortable yet stylish. I could certainly use more of that on my weekend.
