WIWW: The Pretty Ugly Sandal


i5dumf I’ve seen tons of these ugly workmanlike sandals wherever I go. I was always meh about this trend until I saw it on bloggers who looked great (and more important seemed comfortable) wearing them.

When a trend is pretty and comfortable, there’s no way I am going to overlook it 😉 , and so here’s my take on the pretty ugly sandal.

The regular black ones that the bloggers wore in the above photo didn’t quite tickle my fancy. They would look way too plain Jane on me, but when I came across this gold version, I knew this was just the one, and right in time for my birthday too. How could I not resist?

      @Lavanya: Thanks for the kind words :), I am glad you like it.

    I love these kinds of sandals – and the loafers kind. I’m partial to black though!

    • Nishita

      @Laavanya I like the idea of loafers, but still not sure how and with what to wear them with. Also afraid they will make me look stumpy (er).

    I’m still debating them, everyone makes them look so good. I’m not sure I’d be able to carry them off… but then again I’ve not been brave enough to try! x

      @london_mum:disqus I draw the mommy card out and explain it’s great for running after toddlers. But actually, it’s not. I prefer my Toms anyday 🙂
