clogs


I won this pair of Olsson clogs on eBay. I hope they work out!

I wanted a pair of Sven clogs from the same seller because they had a little buckle on them, but I didn't care to get into a bid-fight. These ones are virtually identical, anyhow. I decided I wanted a pair of clogs after visiting Jumelle in Williamsburg -- they had some Svens in the window and they were so pretty.

I am a little torn, however, as I always am with footwear that straddles the line between frump and chic. Ah well, some will get it and some won't, and I like them.

They are my graduation present to myself from myself (a very modest present, but it's the best I can do at the moment). I'm done with school next Thursday, after an exam. I cannot wait. And then comes the crushing rejection inherent to the job hunt! Hooray.

  1. As a devotee of clogs, & living in the Northwest where you might think Danskos are part of some kind of fleecy uniform, I'd totally forgotten about the frump factor with this type of shoe.

  2. I don't think they're necessarily frumpy, I just think maybe some people will see them as leather Crocs...?
