If last year's 'Shoe That Women Can't Get Enough of But Men Loathe' was the Acne Atacoma, then this year's 'it' shoe is bound to be the clog. I should be smart enough to resist. After all, I pride myself on not jumping in too quickly on the trend bandwagon (yes, some may disagree but I have yet to wear tights and denim shorts...). I want to build a wardrobe that can grow with me from year to year and not one that can be picked apart by the season an item was bought in. I'm already seeing clogs all over the blogs (a rhyme, yes). Isn't it funny how one can sick of seeing a certain item without even having seen it worn in real life? Anyways, despite the fact that I'm sure clogs will be overplayed, I caved and bought a pair because the dutch farm girl in me couldn't resist (I made up the part about the farm girl...). The summery quality of clogs is infectious.
P.S. Thanks to An Affair With Fashion (clever name, though I feel like I'm having more of an affair with blogging than fashion...'I promise Matt, I did not just spend 5 hours online, I was cleaning the keyboard!') who just did a feature on my favourite shoe purchase of 2009... my Derek Lam's, which, incidentally, were also bought at a Holt's Last Call super sale. I really am a retailer's worst nightmare... I won't buy anything until it's 90% off.
