The last shoe order I placed from Target turned out to be a big bust. The only pair I kept out of four were the Palani Gladiator Sandals as shown in this post and this post. Here are some quick reviews of the returns (shoes pictured are all sz 5.5):
1. Merona Musetta Ruffled Booties, $24.99
The good: Looked just like the stock photos, and faux-suede felt similar to real suede (below)
The bad: Sides of the booties were stiff and chafed my ankles, ruffle detail stuck out like a clown collar when worn with black tights.
2. Mossimo Karensa Suede Shoe Booties, $29.99
The good: ...
The bad: Looked like elf shoes. Or little rodents on my feet. Heel was also high (4") and stiff, and my feet kept slipping out the front when I tried to walk in these. Sidenote: wowowow keeping my legs out of the sun for a year has turned me quite ghastly! *shields eyes from blinding paleness*
3. Merona Reta T-Strap Pumps, $32.99here.
On an unrelated note, here are some pics from earlier that day. We rolled outta bed and went to this little fish taco shop where Nick satiated his San Diego-an cravings. I'm not a big fan of Mexican food, but I already made him eat Asian all week. He jests that we should open up a dim sum & taco truck (seriously no food trucks at all in Boston...lame!).
