Tidying up the closet... it's what I'm all about these days.
Here's a sad case:
I bought these men's style brogues from that place that rhymes with sinners sometime last year. They're Steve Maddens, and they're kind I usually LOVE: a brogue - trim, tailored pant suits, ties and such, make for great play for me... but for some reason, this colour wasn't working for me. (Maybe they're not dark enough?)
Sounds weird, since I just bought a pair yesterday in almost the identical shade, but they're an entirely different kind of shoe, with a totally different application for dress.
I would have worn them had they been two-toned, I think. Sure I'm hip (bien sur!) but not exactly hipster... nope, they're not happening. I tried to wear them several times - I rolled up my baggier jeans, donned argyle socks (even NO socks!) and took them off at the last minute, opting for something else every time. That's never a good sign. So.
I might let them hang around for a little while longer, but I have a feeling I'll be saying see you later, Steves... that was $40 not well spent, but *shrugs* its just like that sometimes. (And it's hardly a fortune to lose, right?)
But... balls. I kinda hate it when that happens.
