Continuing on with the brown theme (I can do a month of brown, which kind of surprises me really, given that up until a year or so ago, I never wore brown, I was always a black based dresser), these are the last of the shoes bought in the great Singapore Shopping Spree of 2005.Love that these sandals have a closed in toe cap and heel. It somehow makes me feel better about wearing them at work – I have this “rule” about sandals at work – either the heel or toe should be enclosed – at least – to make them acceptable. Of course, I do sometimes break my rule (like, with these) but that’s pretty much what I stick to.
The details I love about these shoes are the straps and the t-bar strap which pulls down into a “v” shape which is echoed at the top of the strap as well (which, lets face, is more flattering for the leg as well), and that the buckle is in the shape of a bow. Now I’m not really a bows kind of person (mostly…) but the little bow is an unexpected detail, as well as being the designer’s logo, which in my view makes it a nice touch.Not a great picture to get the bow detail, but you can (almost) see it there.
