I bought the BC Footwear "Oh Sailor" Sandal in Cognac (SALE-$27.41, after Bing cashback-$16.45.)
Beware of not-so-pretty feet. If you dread looking at feet (I totally do), then exit this page immediately!!
The Look: I really like the style and color -I've been looking for a good nude-ish pair of sandals for forever. I don't own any nice sandals and I'm so sick of flip flops. I really like the criss-cross detailing of the straps and the sandals look great with jeans, shorts, dresses, and pretty much every summer outfit.
How They Fit: I bought a size 6 (the smallest size avaliable) even though I'm a 5.5. Most of the time, I can totally get away with a 6 -usually in flats and sandals and sometimes in heels.
For these, there was no way of getting around it. They were way too big. (In the photo above, my heels are pressed down all the way to the backs of the sandals). My toes hit right at the top straps -way too big for me. Also, the sandals are way too wide for my feet -especially around the ankle. I can slip the sandals on and off without undoing the zippers.
The Verdict: They're going back. I'm sad that they don't fit since they're pretty and super cheap but there's no point in keeping shoes I'll never be able to wear.
I also went to the mall last week looking for my brother's birthday present. I had some time to kill so I looked around for myself too -there was nothing. I ended up buying another Hello Kitty ring to add to my collection and some gum (Cola is one of my faves.) My mom also got me a Buzz Lightyear LEGO keychain from the LEGO Store (my brother's bday theme was LEGOs.)
This is actually a "horoscope ring." I'm not a Pisces but I just loved the Mermaid Hello Kitty!
That's it for my teeny tiny haul -not the most exciting stuff. I'm off to a relaxing day filled with no schedules or chores and lots of eating -it's much needed.
For the last week or so, I've been working (along with my mom) on my brother's birthday party (which was yesterday.) It's been so chaotic and tiring. On Thursday, I spent about 4 hours total making "LEGO" Rice Krispies treats and then stayed up for another 5 hours (until about 4AM) baking cookies. I didn't have any cookie cuters and had to measure and cut each of the 80+ pieces by hand!! On Friday, I spent nearly 10 hours frosting the cookies, cleaning, and doing loads and loads of dishes. Then Saturday was spent doing all sorts of things and getting ready for the party -I was still in my PJs/cleaning clothes at 5PM when the guests were arriving!! I'm so glad it's all done.
Have a lovely, relaxing Sunday everyone. =)
