Anyone who knows me knows that I am totally hip and fashion forward.

I am on top of all the latest trends and can forecast the next big thing, like parachute pants and acid wash jeans.

No, I am not hip, fashion forward, or on top of any of the trends.

Some days I go to the mall in fear that Stacy and Clinton will jump out at me and stage a fashion intervention in the middle of The Gap.

Well folks…I’m hear to say I have made a step in the right direction.

It all started in Nordstrom’s when I started stalking the shoe department. I am not one of those people who receives a gift card and spends it immediately. I need to visit the item I’m considering on at least 5 separate occasions before I will commit to buying them.

It only took me a month and 3 visits this time.

I bought them last week.

shoeThey are very comfortable and…completely on trend. So says Elle Magazine, Teen Vogue, and Seventeen Magazine. I’m sure InStyle and the adult Vogue will be publishing about them any day now. But until then I’m holding onto Teen Vogue’s praise of my beloved.

I don’t think high heeled loving Stacy would be shouting, “Shut the front door!” when I walk out in my TOMS but I think it’s an improvement from flip flops (at least in the winter).

Of course the other reason I bought them is their policy of giving away one pair of shoes for every pair that’s purchased. Let’s face it. I’m a humanitarian changing the world.

Plus, I won’t lie. I feel a bit hip walking around in these shoes.

  1. Great purchase! I love them. I guess Stacy & Clinton won’t have an excuse anymore to jump you at the Gap and send you to NYC for a shopping spree…although that does sound fun!

    Now, only in the “Big D” can you wear these shoes for winter…currently I have on my new prized possession…very warm boots I purchased with Christmas money. It’s 5 degrees here today. Yikes.

    • 5 degrees sounds awful – no TOMS wouldn’t be good in the snow – you can always come visit us – this week we’re supposed to be chilly in the 50’s

  2. Those are such great shoes. I’ve been looking for something similar..hmm…the wheels are turning.

  3. I’ve always though you were incredibly trendy- now you are just proving it 🙂 I can already envision you in your new shoes with your new cute North Face hat and fleece. Best looking mom out there!

    • Since I live in “The Big D” I think it will be awhile before I’m competing for the best looking mom 🙂 I need more”big” everywhere.

  4. You will absolutely love your TOMS! I have 3 pairs and I wear them all the time! However, I will suggest that you don’t wear them in the rain! 🙂 Your feet sure do get wet.

    • I’m so glad to hear you like your shoes enough to have 3 pairs. I was eying the black glitter ones

  5. I really like the shoe. Does it run true to size? Did you take your usual size….I could see myself in these instead of my usual flip-flops around the house and casual trips. Pat
