Fast forward to now. I walked in the door after work and spot bits of something metallic on the kitchen floor. As I round the corner I spy with my little eye my FAVORITE GOLD flats:
(ignore Mildred's kitchen cracked linoleum floor)
I didn't really get upset when Doakes tore through my cookbooks (after all those Rachel Ray recipes sucked) but to walk in and see my go-to shoe as a chew toy!? Oh yeah, Hulk Dahnya was released and Doaksie boy was the sole victim.
I'm not sure if it was my rabid text or my incessant rant about the loss of my beloved golden flats (aka Genie slippers in Fran lingo) but it has led to my hunt for brand new flats with no complaint from my husband. Unfortunately, I spent most of Sunday on the prowl with no luck.
I came across the Sperry gold boat shoe, which is cute but not all-outfit-encompassing.
Of course, Kate always provides a viable but far too pricey option.
I searched JCrew, Zappos, Nordstroms, DSW, you name it, I browsed it. Either I am way too finicky or much too poor. If you come across any in the next few weeks, please send them my way! My closet will surely appreciate it.
