Recent Acquisitions

In preparation for our upcoming trip, I wanted a pair of flats that I could actually walk in.  I have a problem with flats in general; I think it's because I have freakishly long toes (please refer to this post) so sometimes flats can feel really snug around my toes.  Based on the reviews from Gap.com I ordered these 1/2 a size larger than my regular shoe size and they fit quite nicely.  I test drove them today...so far so good.  I'll let you know if they leave me stranded in Lima, with nothing but a Llama and some altitude sickness.

Gap Bow City Flats 


They're doing a handstand for you. Applause, please.


This clutch in the next set of pictures was a really nice surprise!  A belated birthday gift.  I really liked the design of this fun clutch.   I was really surprised to find that it was made by...



The Limited!
This is the Straw Bamboo Clutch  by the Limited!
I love me a little bamboo toggle clasp.

love the flats, i am always on the hunt too. I always end up with Tory Burch flats because to me, they are the most comfortable out there. Let me know how they work out!

I tried on those flats before but unfortunately they just didn't work for me :( Pity, since they're so cute and affordable. Have fun on your trip - can't wait to see photos when you get back!
