And back to the shoe conversation...I will say that some of the designs were very cute. But the comfort factor is what killed it for me. Primarily because right before I went over there, I had tried on the Merona Eleora Flat Sandal ($17.99). At my Target, they were on an endcap, not in the regular racks. Online, there are 9 colors. I got the blue patent pair. Interestingly enough, even though these were thong sandals just like the Miss Trish ones, they were so so so much more comfortable. So, Merona killed Miss Trish for me. I'm trying to remember which colors they had in store - I know they at least had the blue, the green patent, the black patent, and the white patent (which are nice because so many white shoes have white insoles, so they get so grossly dirty and these are tan). I will say that the tortoise patent ones interest me a lot. I may end up ordering them online at some point.
Fit-wise, again - way comfy. They were true to size; I took a 9. The strap was loose enough that I could slide it over my heel - which is one of my rules for sandals because I hate to have to unbuckle and re-buckle because, yes, I am lazy. However the straps definitely held the shoe on my feet without slipping or being tight. Also, the piece in between the toes was actually comfortable. This was the biggest difference between these and the Miss Trish ones - those felt like they were cutting into skin. In spite of the man-made factor, they didn't "squeak" or "squelch" against my skin. I think they will be a great summer shoe, and work with lots. I loved them with just my jeans last night.
Here are some IRL pics.
I think the blue patent is actually a little darker than what's depicted on the Target website. The green was fairly accurately depicted online.
What do you think? What summer sandals have you found or are coveting right now?
