In our efforts to escape our (literally) packed apartment, DH and I hit up the flea market on my day off, and I could not wait to share some finds. Also, it looks like our loan is on the verge of funding and that we could (knock on wood) get our keys this week, so I suddenly find myself able to do more than worry, work, and drink. o_0
In any case, I'd noticed a fair amount of paper bag waists in Fall collections (Rodarte?), so I was super excited to find this pair of trousers for a cool fifty cents. I doubt they were the height of fashion in their retail day, but they brought a lot of nice compliments on the sales floor today. I love that these sit nice and low on my waist and will hold a roll at the ankle.
I also had been on the hunt for a pair of "trainers," which I mentally distinguish from "sneakers" or "tennis shoes" as something that looks like a more serious sport shoe. I wouldn't want to do any kind of "training" in Converse, for example, so my Ash sneakers feel more punk than sporty to me. I had already tried and eliminated wedge trainers by Puma and Ash when I found these navy Tsubos at the flea market for $10. I nearly squealed when I put them on - stay tuned for two other retail-friendly $10 foot acquisitions as well. The closest approximation still available by Tsubo is collected below - I had heard great things about their comfort, and these did not disappoint.
PS: Greg and Angie, I really love the new categories that can be added to collected items!
