I’m a good person! I bought my first pair of TOMS. I feel ashamed because Tom is this amazing guy who makes comfortable slipperesque shoes for everyone (including the poor starving babies somewhere far away) and I’m not making shoes and sort of thought they were too ugly to buy until now. (head in hands)
And because I’m such an individual we can thank the celebrities for convincing me that something is fashionable and cool.
But first let’s see why I didn’t want these things:
Then the hipsters stole them for a while, which was better than the hippies but still pretty annoying.
So I kept seeing celebs frolicking around town in these different colored Aladdin-looking shoes and I felt myself shifting towards acceptance, and then jealousy. This Jasmine needed some TOMS asap.
I went safe and bought the red-corduroy ones.
They are AMAZING. So comfortable and accommodating for my wide feet (yes, I have flapjack soles). And now I want more.
Aren’t these lace ones gorgeous and dainty?
They even make wedges… but I’m not yet sure that those are cute. And do they give the poor people wedges? Because I feel like that’s just mean.
