Cloggin' up my wish lists, yo.

My latest, greatest crave? Clogs.






This slick, cherry pair balances its modern appeal with good old fashioned studs.



Clogs always remind me of Spring. In 5th grade, I had a glorious brown leather, closed-toe version as my "spring pair of shoes". I spent several weeks just smelling the new wood and leather before I would wear them. Their first outing was at a lip-synching contest, where I did interpretive dance movements to Ace of Base's "The Sign".


Dr. Scholl's. Obsessed. I had a white pair in high school that I beaded. Totally rad, and definitely worth a redux.

Not only were the clogs glorious, but they were very apropos-- Swedish band, Swedish shoes? Did no one notice my careful coordination? The answer was "Nej": I was disappointed to see my hands-only dance mocked by the high-schoolers, but I won second prize: $75. There were only 2 contestants in my category, but nevermind: I got a brand new, white-and-pink cassette player at Radio Shack the next day. Heaven!

We Who See.

These might be the grown-up version of those clogs of yore. I envision these with a mid-thigh length trench coat and an abbreviated, floral romper.



Or, on a less fierce occasion, say, delicately fixing a toilet to the strains of my new favorite Swedish singer, I could rock these all day. Perfect color, perfect heel height.... I can almost smell them from here.
