Think back.....circa 1975.....


earth shoes.

god I loved my earth shoes, as soon as I put them on, I turned into a hobbit girl.

I have just acquired a pair, bought at Whole Earth Provisions.

I was so excited, I wore them out of the store.

The chakras of the girls at yoga class tonight will all turn green with envy.

In 1975 I bought my first Fox & Fluevog shoes - there were an open toed clog type thing decorated in the hippie type thing at that time (likely mushrooms). They were $35, which was a LOT to me at the tender age of whatever. They were Earthy type shoes (I've said 'type' a lot in this one passage, haven't I?).

Anyway, the good news is, I've showered and washed my hair!!!!!!!!!! And we're in a hotel surrounded, I say, surrounded by restaurants!!!!

Ciao. Chai.

@Mame,
Yeah, but I bet they don't send the cook out with a bucket if you ask for a glass of water.

They look similar to this.

Do these have negative heels?
