Today’s outfit was a real winner. The deeper that I get into this project, the more that I like my individual outfits. This one felt very Lake Como – just add straw hat and Negroni.
New (to me) sandals
After much deliberation, I did eventually decide to replace my old leather LOFT sandals, but not with the Nisolo slides I’d been lusting after. In the spirit of Slow Fashion Season, looked to the secondhand market instead.
I landed on a pair of Eileen Fisher Edge Slides, which normally retail for $185, but I found on Poshmark in near-perfect condition in my size for $40. I saved myself some cash and ended up with a high-quality pair of shoes that I know are going to be really versatile in my wardrobe, so I’m glad that I took the time to scout Poshmark until the perfect pair appeared.
Here’s a photo of my old sandals (which I unceremoniously trashed moments after taking this picture), compared to the new pair:
The pock marks in the heels of the brown pair are from my dog chewing on them, FYI. It’s not really visible from this angle, but I was probably one bad step away from losing a strap. I had started to avoid wearing them, which is a clear sign that it was time to replace them, since I decided long ago that there’s no room in my closet for items that I don’t absolutely love.
p.s. Eileen Fisher is having a big end-of-season sale right now. I’m not sponsored by them or anything, but I saw the sale when I went to look up the going rate for these slides and thought I’d share it with you since there are some VERY good deals abound (up to 60% off!).
