the study of green suede mary-janes

15 Oct

Charles by Charles David, emerald green suede Mary-Jane 4-inch wedge.  Aren’t they just heaven?  I first saw these shoes a few summers ago and lusted over them for months before deciding that I’d loved them long enough to justify the triple-digit price tag (!!).  By that time, of course, they were sold out.  A few months later I happened to wander into a Charles by Charles David store in California (they don’t have any in my hometown), and that store happened to have one last pair of these babies IN MY SIZE on clearance for $40. Clearly, it was a sign that I was supposed to have green suede Mary-Janes. Right? Right.  (Don’t judge.)  I suppose these are more of a Spring/Summer shoe, but I figure when worn with chocolate brown they are passable for Fall.  Besides, I had to turn on my air conditioner today; I feel justified in my “summery” color choice.

While these shoes are no longer available, here is a similar option you may enjoy.

    I love these shoes of yours. I am jealous of most of your shoes, actually, but these… well, these are just delightful.

    Mary Jane shoes are seriously my favorite!! I wish that those green babies were mine!! I am also in love with your red T-strap shoes. Those are my two favorites by far!

    It was clearly meant to be. I love it when things work out like that. I might even call it a ‘tender mercy’ but I’m not sure if that would be blasphemous. Super cute. You can’t go wrong with suede, in any color.
