Sliding Into Spring

I love slides and their close cousins, mules.  I adore the 70's vibe and remember my mom wearing them when I was a little kid.  When In Style Magazine featured them in their April 2016 issue I immediately wanted a pair and I've been drooling over the ones in the photo ever since.  But $425-$475 for the ones pictured just wasn't in my budget.

From In Style magazine, April 2016

Fast forward to a last week when I decided to stop in Lord & Taylor's as I passed by the store after a business meeting.  I hadn't been in L&T in years, and I don't know why.  L&T always had really nice clothes and accessories and great sales.  And, guess what?  They were having a major sale and I found my dream slides there reduced to only $46 dollars!  They are a beautiful chartreuse color that I'm obsessed with at the moment. And, they have a fabulous lucite embellishment on the heels, which make them even more retro.  Made by Nine West, they are super comfortable. I haven't bought Nine West shoes in a long time, in favor of more expensive and "upscale" brands, but these were just as nice, if not nicer, than the more expensive, similar styles in the store.

Gorgeous color!

The heel is half lucite

As always, Misty had to investigate my new purchase.  I think she was an accessories editor in another life.

We're expecting a Nor'easter snowstorm this week in NYC, but hopefully I'll be able to take them on their maiden voyage very soon!
