(Isn't Giant Dog cute?).
Or so I thought. They were so tight I couldn't even get my feet into them. Very odd and disappointing since other Dansko shoes have fit me so well. Again, no worries, I took them to the cobbler and got them stretched. That made it possible to get my feet into them but they were definitely going to need a lot of breaking in. But I still had lots of time before the trip so I started wearing them every day - ouch! But better ouch now where I can take them off after a while instead of ouch later when I'll be stuck.
But then... I found this at Goodwill.
Yes, I mean "this" not "these." There was only one. That one fit like a dream but I have two feet wanting shoes. I looked high and low with no luck. The gals who stock the shelves looked high and low with no luck. Finally I talked to the manager and she was willing to take my name and number and call me if the other shoe surfaced. I walked out of Goodwill feeling frustrated and defeated assuming that there was little chance the second shoe would show up and figuring that even if it did, the chances were slight that they'd be organized enought to actually call me.
Oh, Theressa of little faith! A few days later the phone rang. They had found the shoe and were putting the pair back out now. They have strict policies that prevent them from holding anything for you. I raced out the door fervently hoping that I could get there before anyone else spotted MY gorgeous red patent leather clogs. I arrived, my heart in my throat and headed straight for the shoes and started scanning the shelf. No clogs.
Yup, that's how I felt.
Ok, take a breath, regroup, check around a bit more. Wait! What's that? There at the bottom of the cart of items to go onto the selves...a glimps of glorious red patent leather! Indeed, not just one, but two gorgeous clogs in nearly new condition ready to make my feet oh so happy all for just $15 (yes, that price was for BOTH shoes.)
Skane Toffeln clogs made in Sweden.
Here's a today's outfit featuring the prodigal clogs.
Dress: I have no idea, the labels were cut out. The fabric is a polyester knit that feels like a fabric used in a lot of current clothing. I love the 40's vibe. (thrifted)
Clogs: Skane Toffeln (thrifted)
