Image via this ebay listing, where they are a size 5 and thus, way too small for me.
I've seen Bensimon sneakers lurking around the internet for a while. I thought, meh, cute, but more canvas sneakers are the last thing I need! Then I tried on a pair at Madewell and thought, well now I see what all the fuss is about!
Of course, I feel extremly picky. I must have them in the mid-top and they must be this light blue. The internet has let me down thus far. Bah! I will find them somehow. Magically they are comfortable as anything, and even more inexplicably, make my feet (hoovering around an 8.5 or a 9) look smallish! How adorable they would be with little dresses, shorts, skirts, taking the fuss out of all the fussy little details I sometimes feel too frilled-over in.
I will find them, someday.
