Whenever I wear these strappy sandals, I always feel a little like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. I’m reaching with the comparison but with my growing theme of upending my life and moving to parts unknown, (not to mention that I now live in the Emerald City) the Dorothy comparison may stick. I purchased these pretty sandals from a small shoe boutique near Koreatown in California a few years ago. I spotted them in the window as I was leaving the train station. It was mean to be.
I’m really trying to discover my personal style right now and it’s been fun repurposing and restyling items in my closet. My biggest learn has been that I’m extremely simple in style but I love a good detail. A simple blue jeans and white shirt combination takes a new turn if the shirt is off the shoulder and has bit of crocheting to it. This one was a steal at Charlotte Russe for $10. The boyfriend jeans are GAP circa Fall 2013.
