I’m not even going to pretend I’m into basketball. I’m really not. It’s an ongoing debate I have with my boyfriend. He can’t get over the fact that I think basketball is boring (it is) but baseball is my favorite sport.
However, I’m an LA native and am therefore devoted to any and all of our teams. In celebration of the Lakers’ epic victory, and at the risk of losing all my Boston readers, today’s Friday Feets is all about the purple and gold.
I’m not a big fan of the flat-soled sandals, as they seem really uncomfortable. I do, however, love the vivid purple with the gold buckles. I probably wouldn’t have posted it if not for the theme, but the more I look at it, the more I like it.
Dolce Vita is amazing. Plain and simple. I love the cutouts along the sides – it’s light, it’s summery, it’s perfect to wear when you go downtown for the Laker parade on Monday.
Unlike the Saahara sandals, I would have posted these regardless of the theme. I would have found an excuse to post them, because I really like them. The reptile pattern isn’t overwhelming. It has a wood heel. The yellow looks great with the wood heel. And, inexplicably, they remind me of summer evenings in New York. I don’t know what that means, but they just do.
Of course, if you want to be really obnoxious, you can custom design a pair of Converse. Here’s one I just whipped up:
I call it the Lakeshoe.
You can even have things stitched on the back or the sides. You’re only allowed a maximum of 12 characters, so there’s not much room to gloat, but you’re a creative bunch.
If you thought this post was obnoxious, you’ better hope the Dodgers don’t win the World Series (not that it’s likely, but still). Because while I can take or leave basketball, I love the Dodgers.
Who, coincidentally, are playing the Red Sox tonights. Sorry Boston readers, but …
