Valentino Black Lace Espadrille Flats
Awhile back, my best friend and I were prowling around Neimans on one of our quick 36-hour "work" trips. Casual. And, while I was getting my make-up done at the Tom Ford counter, I see my friend modeling a pair of shoes for me.
She goes, "What do you think?"
I ask, "Are you wearing TOMS?"
She says, "F*ck you, they're Valentino."
Not two weeks later, she sends me a picture of the "TOMS"-esque shoes she tried on...I mean, the Valentino Lace Espadrilles (in gardenia pink, mind you)...in a Vogue spread being modeled by Chanel Iman. Whatever, I thought, they still looked like TOMS.
But wait, she was onto something, and it's currently trending everywhere - TOMS, but way cooler.
Don't get me wrong, I still want you to go out and buy your TOMS. It's an amazingly charitable brand that I strongly back...I'm all about "one for one" - just do me a "one for one" and keep your TOMS in the dark of your closet where nobody can see them.
So, back to the revolution. TOMS, but way cooler.
This is what I'm talking about...
