Update 5/1 – I just found these and I like them too!! Which do you prefer?
Original Post 4/27 ~ Wow… I’m really late posting today, once again I’m juggling 10,000 things, but it’s been a fantastic and beautiful day. Here’s today’s post!
I’ve been seeing TOM’s shoes around for some time now, I love the charitable cause they represent. With every pair of TOM’s purchased, the company donates a pair to a person in need. TOM’s was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie who had the idea to design and sell lightweight shoes based on the espadrille. I hadn’t purchased a pair because I’m not a huge fan of flat espadrilles, but then… TOM’s created these stylish slip ons, the Meridian Leather and Burlap ballet flat! I absolutely love them, and at $135.00 a pop, they’re an affordable option compared to some others.

When not wearing 4″ heels (or more), I love to wear my ballet flats for running around doing errands and what not. I’m glad that TOM’s has finally created a shoe, which I don’t mind wearing, and at the same time I can make a contribution to a worthwhile cause. There are other beautiful colours and styles available at http://www.toms.com/, Neiman Marcus and other stores.
Have a fabulous and inspired weekend Dahhlings!!
