Eating crow

It's time for a piece of humble pie.

I have not been quiet in my dislike of the styling of the oh-so-popular Toms.




Even sparkly, it's just not happening...

But my cute friend Amy pointed out that they have a new line of ballet flats...and guess what???

They are pretty great.

I know, seriously, I think that almost hurt me to say that I'm in to a pair of Toms...but seriously, look how cute these are!








I think I just died a little inside doing this post...I don't even know who I am anymore!

Anyone else eating some crow about now or are you still drinking the hateraide?

And speaking of hateraide...if you are desperately wanting to do someone a favor and get like all the good karma back that goes with that...you can enter the contest for this gorgeous necklace that I've been drooling over FOREVER by going and "liking" Petal Boutique's FB page and telling them that I sent you!


Um yes, I totally just asked you to help me win a contest. Does it make it any better if I say that I *reaaaaalllly*
love it and will probably never buy it for myself?
No???

Well, maybe your luck is just better than mine and you'll be the lucky winner instead!

Don't worry, if that happens, we'll still be friends. (c:

I didn't care for the Toms last year but they grew on me. I think I may get a pair of the original one. The ballet flats are cute but I already have some Tory Burch that I don't wear enought.

Would you mind passing me a slice?

What, what, what! Toms as ballet flats-sign me up!

Baby Shopaholic, if you are 8.5 shoe size I think I can find a really caring home for those Tory Burch's. They would even have their own room :-)

I wear and love my Toms (although I still think they are kinda ugly). The ballet flats are on my wish list for sure, I just think $80 for them is a little high when the other ones are like half that price...

i too couldn't get behind the original style of toms. i just didn't think they were cute at all. but now i want all of their ballet flats!

I'm with you, not a total fan of the Tom trend but the flats are pretty cute. Also loving the wedges! :)

Amanda Hill said...

Oh those are cute...but I admit I have been a fan of TOMS. I have the Lace and I adore them. Sorry doll I still love you!

Leslie said...

Those are cute! I wonder if they are comfy?

Alexa said...

Haha. Yep those TOMS are pretty darn adorable!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

The Now said...

I don't mind Toms actually. I wear mine probably every other day. Would I ever wear Toms wedges? Never. xoxo

I have been considering the Toms for a while, but I am not loving the flats.

Oh suga snap pea!!!!! LOOK AT YOU blogging my giveaway... just for that your name goes in the pot 10 extra times {not kidding}!!!! :) Love you! Loving the Toms too!

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

Loving the flat, cuter, version of the Toms that is...

Anne @ Hello Newman's said...

the flats are so cute! I agree - never a fan of the originals...but the ballet flats - I could def go for a pair!!

I have been battling liking the new ballet flats....just because they are Toms. I really don't want to like them, but they are SO cute! I can't resist.

I really like Tom's for taking on the Roman Coliseum. But they're really tempting me to work up the courage and wear ballet flats. Thanks for all of the kind words. I'm gonna shed tears but I'm gonna keep going :)

So not a huge fan of Tom shoes. I think they look like old lady shoes! But those flats ... Well, those may change my mind about their shoes! Those are actually normal looking shoes! Love!

Lonely Wife Project said...

You just changed my mind about Toms with those flats!

Stephanie said...

I hate the original TOMS. They look like hospital shoes. But, like you, I found myself drooling over the flats and bought a pair as soon as they were available. I love them! They're SO comfy and cute. I've had a lot of compliments on them and most people can't believe they're TOMS.

I was on the TomsHatinWagon for a long time. Then I put them on and fell in love, but that's besides the point. Now that they make ballet flats, I'm doomed. So cute! And comfy?! Those black and tan ones are my favorite!
