this is the story of your red right ankle.



I miss wearing shoes (emphasis on the plural). One shoe on my left foot isn't quite cutting it.

Anyway, did I ever tell you about the time I walked into a thrift store and immediately found a brand new, never-been-worn pair of red Toms shoes in my exact size? For $4?

It happened, and Clint was there to witness my joy. They really are the most comfy shoes ever.

  1. I think Clint really appreciated my comment regarding the obvious need you'll have to purchase several new pairs of shoes since your left shoe will be more worn than the right. :)

  12. My goal lately has been to work on my jealousy flaw and YOU make it hard to achieve! The red ones are my favorite and for $4? Unbelievable. You should honestly get an award for best thrifter. Hope you are feeling well and that your ankle (foot?) heals soon. :)

  14. This truly is amazing! Buying a pair of Toms is on my list of things to do this summer, but buying them at a thrift store is so much better!

  15. you and your thrifting stories are unreal. honestly. move me to az. now. all you can see at your local thrift stores in provo is enough to wear to the ugly sweater parties at christmas time. honestly, nothing attractive. but i love your stuff!!! my toms were not quite as cheap but i do still love. and i hope you get to wear both soon.
