Where I Wore It: To work and then in a rainstorm (3/2/12)
Last Friday, when I wore this, I had grand visions of going to work and then heading to Arlington to hit up the mall and, more specifically, DSW. Shoe heaven. Instead, when I left work, raring to go, at 4:30, it was pouring. I mean pouring, the kind of rain where it just pools all over the sidewalk because DC has terrible drainage. Of course, when I checked the weather that morning, I didn't see rain in the forecast (we'll overlook that my mother in Massachusetts apparently heard on the news that we were going to get slammed down here with a rainstorm yet I didn't?), and so I left the house in cute and comfy flats that would be easy to slip on and off for trying on shoes and clothes.
Fast-forward 35 minutes (hell if I was going to venture down to VA and schlep around the mall in that weather), and I arrive at home, completely soaked from the knees down with shoes literally squelching and gushing water. Now these flats, which I adore, have already survived (mostly) one rain storm. But I'm not sure they survived this one. When I kicked them off just inside the front door, the inside was peeling off and stuck to my foot! :(
I left them out to dry, and I haven't inspected the damage yet. It's probably time I threw them out (they aren't even leather...), but I love my little pink snakeskin flats!
