if i were to give up
all my shoes...


I would be content
with just 1 pair of
espadrilles


but which color?
ah! that's the tough part

ahh.....this makes me want to stroll the streets of cap d'antibes in a crisp linen dress. this is how i always want to imagine an espadrille.

even if you gave up all other shoes for these, i think you would still need a "sturdy" pair of leather sandals :)

out west subconsciously different stimuli affect you

CA is not urban the way NY is, so that may be what is missing--the metallic-ness of living in NYC, on the East Coast in general, with its old industrial patina

even SF (tho' you're in the Bay area? Not SF proper?) feels dilapidated compared with NYC

so all this combined with the softness of CA living will raise your optimism, become less skeptical, cynical... CA is a siren of myth... follow Odysseus and strap yourself against its allure

I love this! I actually just purchased a pair of blue stripy canvas espadrilles. I am very excited to wear them every day for the rest of the summer. Before the snow comes and ruins my life...

i'm a little embarrassed to admit how hard i been trying to hunt down those stripy castaners. some great looking shoes, there.

I agree, great photos.

There is a site in the UK called www.espadrille.co.uk that has a select of striped espadrilles & ships worldwide.
