Finding Simplicity

As I mentioned before, my shoe collection is lacking. Especially when it comes to flats. I’m picky. They need to show at least a touch of toe cleavage, they have to be well-made, and if they cut into the back of my heel I will set them on fire. Also, according to my sister I have “peasant” feet which probably makes it that much harder to find flats. Oh, and they have to be affordable. I’ll pony up for boots and gorgeous heels, but flats are so simple that I can’t bring myself to pay a lot for them.

So you can imagine my excitement at finding purrfect flats. Well, kind of. Lands End Canvas is the hipper, trendier off-shoot of Lands End. While perusing their sale rack (an extra 70% off of sale prices!) I found one pristine black flat. No embellishments, a solid bottom, and nicely low-cut in the front. I was determined to get them, even though the only other side I found was a half size too small. Hey, leather flats for $10? I’ll take it. I brought the smaller side to a cobbler, had it stretched, and now I’m in plain black flat heaven. That’s called thinking out of the (shoe) box, people!




Oh, yeah, there’s an outfit too.
