I bought the shoes online, at a substantial discount, without having tried them on, nor even having seen them. Easily the last time I'll do that, particularly for Cydwoqs, which by definition are unusual, a bit hard to fathom on your foot.
Yet, I didn't dislike them sufficiently to return them. The angular cut-outs were kinda cool, after all, and they were this greyish greenish color, and fit perfectly, and were way comfortable. Sometimes you want to put something like that aside. If the quality is crap, I'm all in favor of reclaiming precious closet real estate, but if the quality is there, sometimes it's more a matter of timing.
Today was the day to take them out and show them some love. Now that it's officially autumn, naturally it's gloriously hot, almost summery? I love hot weather. I tried doing a ponytail (it bombed, frankly, a bun would have been better), socks (yay!) and the shoes...and took a long walk—really very comfortable.
I made these earrings a while back, from "baby" coin pearls. Got the idea from Midori Jewelry, one of my favorite handmade jewelry sites. Everything on the site reminds me of water, the sea, somehow, it's peaceful and relaxing.
