emma: day 5 \ shoeaday
i was seriously considering posting my slippers as my shoe for the day. the ill-fated slippers. but the story of the evil slippers will have to wait, dan managed to drag me out of the house. i needed something to perk up my spirits, and so i chose these for the height factor, plus their ability to satisfy my unwavering efforts to sport tones of natural leather as much as possible.
i purchased these from DSW to meet my summer sandal/wedge/strappy quota. they have merits: the color, for one (as previously mentioned). the minimal weaving effect is a nice detail that evokes a native/handmade feel – but the designer didn’t feel the need to throw a chunk of fake turquoise on it, a perfectly good way to ruin a perfectly good shoe that has been cropping up a lot lately. beware the fake jewels and stones. they’re hard to do right. finally, their height. always a plus for someone who barely tops out at 5 feet.
