Maybe it’s because I’ve got the case of the January blues, maybe it’s because I had a brief taste of this horrid flu that’s been going around, maybe it’s me being tired of all these parka-inspired outfits, or maybe it’s just because I’m a true SoCal girl at heart. Either way, or for all of the above reasons, the moment I laid eyes on these brightly colored flats – I got hit with a serious case of Spring Fever.
The Tory Burch Weston’s are not far off the mark when compared to the luxe Chanel Fabric Espadrilles; but to be frank, I would assume that with a price tag of $400 it would be safe to say that the Chanel’s are out of the average woman’s daily budget. These Westons however, are a different story. For $125, I would say they are moderately priced (when compared to Tory Burch’s other offerings or Chanel’s steeper price tag) and these espadrilles seem to be the perfect accessory to add some livelihood back into these dulling winter months. It comes in a multitude of vice versa color schemes that can easily be found on several well-known online retailers such as: Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Shopbop.
So I couldn’t resist, I tried them on. Remember that story of when Cinderella tries on that glass slipper? Her fairy godmother waves her wand and she magically has this perfectly hued, expertly tailored, custom gown to match those expensive crystal pumps (Side Note: Cinderella’s famous heels are totally trending right now). Well, you know you’re a shoe hoarder when you can relate to Cinderella. Feeling the bright fabrics against my feet, I immediately began to envision myself in a simple meets classic ensemble that was made up of: a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans, an airy white blouse, some delicate gold bracelets, minimalistic studs, and an oversized classic clutch to top it all off.
Who needs a glass slipper when you have a pair of cheeky two-tone espadrilles? Who needs Prince Charming when you have Tory Burch? I was sold; and to Ms. Tory Burch – you have won again.
