Toms Shoes, Part 3

As some of you know, I am slightly obsessed with Toms Shoes.  This tartan pair from my friend Judy is still my favorite:


Of course I'm always on the lookout for new ones.  I love these Madras Toms:


How cute are these green plaid with faux gold tassels?


I wrote a  post entitled Toms, Part 2 (here) about a pair of shabby chic Toms that Rachel Ashwell designed.  I was distraught because the shoes had sold out and I couldn't find a pair except on eBay, where the seller was price gouging!

But then I found a fabulous pair on Etsy (here) which I like even more than Rachel Ashwell's:


Today I was at Hobby Lobby when I stumbled across this pair of Toms knock-offs.  For $9.99 you can buy and decorate them yourself.  Not a bad idea!

But life happens...
After searching for my size all these years, I've changed my focus.  There's a new kid in town:



We have the baby....now we need the Baby Toms!

    1. Thanks, Alison! Yes, I'm already thinking about all of the endless opportunities to clad the lad in plaid! (Sorry...)

  4. Those baby Toms will really look smart with his cardigans and bow ties.

    I like the tasseled Toms as well as the Laura Ashley lookalikes. Btw, did you know (tragically) that she fell down the stairs back in the late '80s? Just sayin'.

    1. Yes, I heard about Laura Ashley's tumble down the stairs. A certain person who will remain nameless and who never liked the L.A. dresses I used to wear, told me that she (L.A.) was wearing one of her long dresses and tripped on it while going down the stairs. Who knows? That's probably what happened!

    2. Yes, I think it's true. The PR on that one must be what also finished off the brand.

  5. Also, your hair looks really cute in that photo.

    Can I borrow some of your followers for my blog?

  6. HI sweet friend,
    Just checking in on you. Hope all is well. I just posted on my grown up baby boy's plaid bedroom makeover and thought of you when I did it.
    Love your grandmother and grandchild photo here ... plaid scarf and all. :)

    Enjoy those precious moments!

  7. I, too, like you're a big fan of such shoes. Most of all I liked the third option of colors.
