Sparkle Shoes

A few months ago, I bought a pair of gold sparkly Toms shoes, and haven't looked back since. I wear them all the time. Sometimes people simply state, "those are sparkly shoes." I thank them, even though it isn't always clear if they mean it as a compliment. Today, however, on the train, they really had their moment in the sun.

There I sat, legs crossed, unsightly red and blue striped socks blaring, gold shoes sparkling. I didn't think anyone had noticed, but as I was getting off the train, a very fabulous looking older gal with giant sunglasses and all sorts of fun brooches, touched me on the shoulder, and said, "Your shoes make me smile. Thank you." 

How delightful is that? So, everyone reading this, go out and buy yourself a pair of Tom's. Not only will you be the constant belle of the ball, but for every pair of shoes you buy, the company gives a pair of shoes to a child in need. It's a win win!


  1. but are they comfortable?
    i like them, especially the sparkles, but i think my feet will hurt after hours of prancing and dancing

  2. Brown glittery slip ons are the new red slippers!

  3. i concur!!

    they also sell them in a silver/gray that i'm eyeing as can never have too many glitter shoes.
