And there you have in a nutshell what my week was like since we last met online. I distinctly remember sitting here typing in my last post with a tickle in my throat that kept growing as the evening wore on. Once the next morning dawned, I had a fever of 101 degrees and and decided desire to be buried as far beneath the comforter as possible. And if the quasi-delerium that accompanies that high a temperature weren't enough, I underwent further mind altering experiences with liberal applications of NyQuil. The rest of my week was a bit of a blur, to say the least. I tried to rally with a stunning new pair of clog boots as you saw in the previous post, but they're a pair I'll obviously need to revisit soon. So I can actually remember having them on my feet.
Dear DOC, what a week!
Happily, I'm on the mend and feeling my feet more firmly in place on the planet with each new day. Tonight, I was just sitting around wondering what to do with my freshly recharged batteries. Then I remembered all those shoes that didn't get posted last weekend. So let's get to them!
For a couple of months or so now I've been clamoring about the latest wood-soled styles I've been spotting on the web pages of Free People and Urban Outfitters. And then suddenly it hit me: I hadn't dropped by the shoe section of Anthropologie.com in awhile.
Look at what I've been missing!
Atlantic mule from Strena
Casablanca clog from Kelsi Dagger
Celina bootie from Kelsi Dagger
Haiden clog from Kelsi Dagger
Cuffed clog boot from Penelope Chilvers
I hang my head in embarrassment. This one has sold out while I nursed myself back to health.
Nolan clog from Rachel Comey
Century clog bootie from Swedish Hasbeens
This one has also sold out. It appears that if I snooze, you lose.
Colie wedge from Dolce Vita
Velours oxford from Bosabo
Sione clog from Bosabo
Still more new discoveries online
I spotted these examples of wooden goodness on the Urban Outfitters web site not long ago.
Valbruna platform sandal from Shellys London
And then over on Luisaviaroma.com, these totally sensible derby clogs made an appearance.
Derby lace-up clog from Maison Martin Margiela
Then I was totally drawn in by the footwear the models were wearing in this ad that appeared in my mailbox. I grabbed the image to share with you here, and now I discover that it doesn't offer any clue whom the retailer is. Well, that's all right. I clicked the link when I saw the message, and there was nothing that suggested clogs or clog boots were intended to be seen when I got there. These clog shod feet with models dressed in my party colors were all there was to be seen.
Another peek at those FeiradeBarcelos clog boots
When I discovered these inexpensive clog boots from Portugal on Etsy, I ordered a pair in natural leather because I didn't want to find out what "black leather takes longer" might mean. Our correspondent in Australia opted to find out by ordering a pair in both colors! A photo of the black pair reached my Inbox this past week. If you haven't yet pounced on this bargain, follow the link to FeiradeBarcelos on Etsy.
Here's Maria's photo of the black clog boot from her Etsy listing.
