Fortunately a random walk through the Macy's shoe department finally shone a much-needed light on my ridiculous affliction. There were rows and rows of beautiful espadrilles all for under $100! Shoes that, from afar (or in many cases, up close) could have been either discount or designer, but somehow the quality all looked amazing. I couldn't stop to try any on (and my swollen prego feet would hardly do any shoe justice at this point) but I was soooo inspired! The best collection (by far) came from Nine West.
Are you drooling? I totally am! I can now say with full confidence that I have been cured of my WSS. A designer espadrille? How totally unnecessary! When the time is right (as in when the foot swelling goes down) I am going to nab myself a pair of these wallet-friendly beauties.
