What I Wore Wednesday [Week 4- Tale of two flip-flops]

Pin It

pleated poppy

Sunglasses- Target
Green Tank- Gap
Grey Shorts- Walmart (boo!)
Flip Flops- Viva Las Vegas, Yup, bought them at NYNY Casino Gift Shop  (very inexpensive, but so comfy and have lasted two years, Cobian)

Dress- A skirt, actually, from Old Navy for like $4 on clearance last summer.
Flip Flops: Juicy Couture - - - Let me tell you about these:

I went to Vegas for a girls' weekend with my Mother-In-Law and my Husband's cousin, for her 21st b-day, when I was first pregnant with our youngest daughter. 

 Yeah, about that, found out I was preg after we planned on Vegas! Doh! *wink* It's all good though.

Anyway... we did a ton of walking around and the shoes I was wearing were killing my feet.  As we are walking through the Shoppes at Caesar's Palace, we pass Juicy Couture.  Now, I'm not typically one to buy for name brand, well... not as Name Brand as Juicy... but I had done well at video poker and my winnings were burning a whole in my purse!  I bought these flip-flops; they were SO comfy on my sore feet, I had to have them.  The. most. I. have. EVER. spent. on flip-flops.... Ever!  I wore them all afternoon, bliss.  Get back to the hotel... dirty, nasty, bliss. Do those words even belong together in the same sentence?  The streets of Vegas are uber gross!  I did a decent job of cleaning them up and brought them home.

Once home I unpack my new, expensive, Juicy Flip Flops and put them in the closet.. away from my daughter, who was 5 at the time, and Marilyn, our Boston Terrier, though, not known for shoe chewing... I was taking no chances.  I pull them out the next day and DUN, DUN, DUN... The heel of EACH expensive Juicy Couture Flip Flop has tons and tons of teeth marks. . .Jack Bauer, my panther-of-a-black-cat had chewed the heck outta my Juicy flip flops! UGH!!!  JACK!!!!

Needless to say, I continue to wear them on occasion because I REFUSE to throw the darn things away.
And, I will NEVER pay that much for flip-flops again... Never. Ever.
(They do have super cute little gold Scottie dog charms on them. *wink*)
