Every few years I “need” some new espadrilles (blame the ranch, grime of Midtown, and giant Texas rain for ruining my others).
Mr Wannabe has a “thing” for them and I’m happy to oblige 😀
Just a few days ago, I found some we both liked at http://www.dillards.com but today, they were gone.
It’s April and I saw a lot of “last pair” and “only 1 left!” In size 9 for Clementine*
So, I had to jump.
Find the brand and style on sites like Dillard’s.com, Nordstrom’s, dsw.com or Aerosoles.com then search for them on Amazon.com. They ship for free and arrive in 3 days.
In herring boxes, without topses…
(Herring boxes-enormous wooden boxes of old (above, left) were used to ship salted herring in the 1800s. Clementine’s feet were considered so big, that only a herring box could hold them).
*Old American Mining song:
“In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner forty niner,
And his daughter Clementine
Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes, without topses,
Sandals were for Clementine.
Oh my darling, Clementine!”
