Confession: I Bought Shoes...

2 Pairs actually! Heehee!

And you know what, I'm not even guilty about it because they're so cheap! Besides, I'm about to pop soon and my shoe size stayed the same all through out. No swelling too. Hope nothing changes until I give birth. Plus, the shoes I bought are made from fabric so these will stretch for sure if need be...

Here's pair #1:



Got these espadrilles for $4.99 at the Brooks Brothers Outlet store in Hershey, PA a couple of weeks back. While they are super comfy and cushioned inside, I don't think they really are made for walking, unless its on the beach or the boardwalk. City streets are very unforgiving, I actually have to bring my winter boots and my Lanvin flats for repair to the Leather Spa on 55th. Soon soon when I'm not too lazy to lug around 3 pairs of shoes, ugh! So for now, while I love these espadrilles, I only wear them around the house, heehee!



Now about pair #2: Yesterday, my friend Xsa visited from PA, and we went out to run errands. I was wearing my French Sole flats and while I love them, when we stopped by Whole Foods we saw the Toms shoe section and I just had the urge to try a pair on. They were so comfy and light! I love how it has a leather lining inside so even if the uppers are made of fabric, it feels a little bit luxurious when worn. Oh, and since Xsa and I bought a pair each, we feel good knowing that there are two kids in need of shoes who will get a pair of Toms as well!

Between my two new pairs of shoes, I think Toms would be the perfect summer pregnancy shoe! Or a mommy shoe! A pair of Toms would be perfect for when I'm pushing Berry's stroller when we go out for short walks! =)

Xsa and I got these Madras ones...



My feet are officially on a summer state of mind now =)

toms is so expensive. they should be able to give 3 kids shoes for every toms sold. 3 not 1 is fair i think. ~trena

But they also have overhead, marketing expenses, etc apart from the cost of the shoes themselves, so I think one for one is fair enough =)

I'm crushing on Toms! Wish I could find them easily in Europe, though asking friends in the U.S. to dash to a Whole Foods for me is an option. Yours is a pretty pair! PS. Just discovered French Sole. My goodness, they are too lovely.

Thanks Vanessa! I have been living in my Toms since I got it, heehee! Oh and you may also ask your friends to order it from Amazon because it's cheaper there! As for French Soles, yes, I cannot imagine living without a pair. They may look delicate, but they last for years and years =)
