Window Shopping Wednesdays

I am not much of a shopper, much to my mother’s chagrin. The woman can spend days at the mall, while I start to feel itchy after just a few hours. It’s not that I’m not materialistic, I totally am, it’s just that the thought of adding more stuff to my life makes it hard to breathe. But I like the idea of things. So I’m an avid window shopper. I browse catalogs I’ll never buy from and hold my breathe when I pass the window at J.Crew. So while I’m stuck at school all day Wednesdays, I thought we could have some fun via blog. Let’s window shop!

Here’s what I’m coveting this week –

1.  Yellow Pop Herringbone Women’s Classics by TOMS.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about how comfortable TOMS are and when I finally checked out the site I couldn’t believe how cute they were too!  Could I wear these to the hospital for clinic?  I love that the company gives a pair of shoes to a child in need with every purchase.

2.  MAC Nail Lacquer in Hyperion.

This shade, a mix of light grey and blue-green, would look great with my new TOMS 😉  I think it’d be fun with a coat of multi-color glitter over the top too.

3.  The Food Bank Ric Rac Storage Bowl from Fishes Eddy.

I’m moderately obsessed with ric rac and if I have a girl child I have big plans of sewing it on the hems of all her dresses.  I love the cheery yellow of this bowl.  Even better, 5% of the proceeds from the sale of the Food Bank line at Fishes Eddy go to a NYC food bank.

4.  The Slub V-neck Tee from Lands End.

I’m all about slouchy tees for layering under blazers.  I like that this has the cute v-neck but isn’t too low-cut for business dressing.  All the colors are cute but I like graybird (shown) and antique olive best.

5.  An order of Parisienne mac and cheese from S’mac.

If you currently live in NYC I sort of hate you.  Not really, but the newest reason on my dying of jealousy list is S’mac, a mac and cheese place on East 12th Street.  The Parisienne is made with creamy Brie, roasted figs, roasted shiitake mushrooms & fresh rosemary.  Swoon.

Do you own TOMS?  What’s the verdict, should I be pining for a pair?

  1. I own TOMS, and I like them, but they’re…not great. They wear out instantly, and they make my feet sweat. I’m not saying you shouldn’t get them, and I would actually like another pair, but for what they cost, even considering the fact that you’re really buying two pairs of shoes, they’re pretty poor quality.

  2. I have red toms (I’m cool like that). I have very pretty lacy half socks (also called clog socks). Unless your feet sweat on the back half (??), the socks make the shoes so comfortable and extend their life (lives).

  3. Love my TOMS! Um, you know where I live… my feet don’t sweat. Not sure what others are talking about. They are uber comfy, even for 14 hour teacher days like I have been having lately. You need a pair. Oh, and I have been wearing mine for awhile now and they haven’t worn out at all.
