I don't know about other states, but I see people wearing TOMS all the time in Southern CA. I have yet to buy a pair because I rarely buy anything new for myself and after having kids, I couldn't bring myself to shell out $50 for a pair of shoes. (Not judging others that do, fyi.)
Espadrilles have been around for much longer than TOMS, which was established in 2006. Before there were TOMS, there were these gold woven pair of espadrilles from the 1970s I found at a thrift store. I was going to list these pair of shiny delightful shoes for the shop. I tried these on to model them, but once they were on me, I knew that I was not going to give these up. I've been on the look out for some flashy flats and I have finally found what I've been looking for! What's even better is they're extremely comfortable and cushiony, so I will definitely be wearing a lot of this pair once the weather warms up.
Do you guys own any flashy flats or espadrilles? Do share and have a great weekend!
