The blogging theme for the week is NEW SHOES. Check out the pics I took of Maria’s new kicks.
Tonight after work Bex and I met up for some shoe shopping. I’ve been talking about buying some Chuck’s (Chuck Taylor‘s Classic Converse Sneakers) for a couple months now, so we decided on Get Outside– which has the widest variety of Chuck’s to choose from (in my experience). There were SO many colours, but I narrowed it down to some brown slip-ons, a pink pair, and a super classic pair of off-white sneaks with a blue and red stripe. Well- the brown ones were deceiving because there are eyelets for shoelaces, but you’re not supposed to wear laces with them. I thought that was silly. The pink ones were falsely advertised because the display pair were nicely faded, and the actual shoes were bright pink- almost neon! SO- I got the off-white pair, and I’m thoroughly satisfied.
A couple stores east of Get Outside, there was a grand opening sale at one of those nameless shoe stores (it has a name, I just don’t know what it is- WAIT- the receipt will tell me- Grey Stone Shoes- what a strange name…) Buy one pair, get a second pair FREE! Well- come on now. So I bought this super cute pair of copper sling backs and this embellished slipper look-alike. Both are extremely comfortable, perfect for summer, and entirely appropriate for work. Meh- I really am a grown up.
Finally, we hit Sushi Time (which has moved BTW- but only about 10 doors east). Yummy Golf boxes filled with tempura, teriyaki, rice, goyza, salad, miso and salmon and cucumber rolls. SO good. The new restaurant looks amazing…
