On Sunday, I had a couple hours to kill before I headed to salsa class, and what better way to kill time than to shop? I tried to restrain myself and not buy too much, but I did go to the mall with a specific goal in mind: the coloured enamel bangles at Old Navy which were on sale and reduced to $5.70. I ended up picking up a set of three red skinny bangles, a navy bangle, and a turquoise bangle:
I really like this colour combination and think it'd look great with this spring's preppy nautical-inspired clothes. I'm planning to wear my bangles with an all-white ensemble, or with a red and white striped tee and bermuda shorts.
As I was leaving Old Navy, I spotted these shoes but in a metallic gold leather - from Gap Kids, of all places:
Apparently Gap Kids can be a great source of cheap shoes for gals with small feet; I'd already learned to browse the kids' aisles in Payless if I found an adult style I liked in a too-large size, so it was very possible I could find a pair of metallic gold leather cork wedges in my size. Foregoing my initial skepticism about kids' shoes, I discovered to my delight and surprise that the shoes fit and were ridiculously comfortable...as in, "I could walk around all day in these and be fine" comfortable, which is rare for a heeled shoe. The wedge is 2" high but the raised platform around the toe makes the shoe feel a lot lower and therefore more comfortable. I guess this is because it's supposed to be a kid's shoe and kids' shoes aren't supposed to screw up growing feet. Anyway, they were comfy, cute, and only $34.50...what more could I ask for?
