 Years ago I bought a pair of plain black slides from the brand Italian Shoemakers (on the box), which were unbranded on the shoe itself. I kind of figured that this brand was just a generic name for knockoff shoes, which made me sad because these are the most cushion-y shoes I've ever owned. They're not the most comfortable ever for standing around for long periods of time, but for periodic walking in an office, they are absolutely perfect.

And, they feel like slippers when you're sitting at the desk. Seriously.

It turns out that Italian Shoemakers is a real brand name, and DSW carries them! Take a look at these reviews for the Melon Wedge Sandal. The stretchy fabric that they use for the upper is really comfy, too. The footbed does run a little narrow, at least on my pair, but I'll gladly accept those trade-offs for heels like slippers.

Seeing personal style through K's eyes.

I'll be chronicling my quest for personal style on a frugally-raised college student's budget. Fitting room reviews, style inspirations, musings/rants about dressing a petite, size-2 apple figure--just whatever is on my mind. I adore the Anthro aesthetic, but rarely pull it off in real life. Same goes for heels and make-up...
