A fashion risk that paid off

I wasn’t at all certain I’d get a lot of wear out of these No. 6 sandals when I bought them, but I was so attracted to the hue—a kind of perfect, slightly acid-y yellow—that I did it anyway. I thought they’d be good for days I was wearing all black or white, but I end up wearing them with all sorts of colors, and they sort of work with everything, weirdly.

    I love No 6, but it kills me that they print the size right there on the heel. Does everyone need to know I wear a size 42?

      Wear them proudly, Sarah! I’m tall at 5’10” and have tall beautiful daughters, (one is 6’1”) Who never liked their big feet until I pointed out that they’d tip over if they didn’t have proportional feet to stabilize them. It sounded like scientific fact, so they accepted it. 😉

    You’re not kidding! They seriously look great with every damn thing in my closet, though I’m partial to wearing them with blue stuff. 10/10 would recommend, etc.

    I bought a sample Linea Pelle Dylan bag in acid green that weirdly went with my entire wardrobe.

    Love these! How’s the width on this style? I have wider feet and some No. 6 styles are too narrow for me. These are so great though, I’m seriously tempted. xxxo
