tic tac toes

shoes  tic tac toes

Remember those Tic Tac Toes dream shoes I mentioned a million years ago? Well, after months of (im)patiently waiting, they finally arrived! They are so darling and comfy, I want to wear them with everything. The giant bows remind me of those Sam & Libby ballet flats that were all the rage in the early 90's (at least in my bow-obsessed mind). These babies are going to need some slip guards before I wear them out in the world, otherwise I'll end up Risky Business-ing all over the sidewalk. But I highly recommend them... as long as you don't mind waiting at least a month, they are very well made and they run true to size. Next on my wish list is a pair of the glittery mary janes!

Oh they are GORGEOUS. I am quite envious - I can't wear shoes like that as the high strap makes my big feet look clownish. Sob!

Hurray! I'm glad they have your seal of approval. I might go ahead and get some, but looking at all this weather we're having in New York (okay, it's just raining a little) makes me feel like wearing boots the rest of forever.

I remember the Sam and Libby flats! I think I had some. And how great that you wore your new shoes with that little school girl dress :)
