I think The Manolo would love these. True, they’re priced a bit lower than his usual favorites. And yes, they are from Old Navy, that bastion of inexpensive but often unremarkable 4 of July t-shirts, cargo shorts, and candy-colored flip-flops.
But to a chubby girl on a budget, the ON can be a miracle, especially now that they have clothes for the bigger lady. Oh! These shoes! They evoke Jackie O and Marie Antoinette, a wearable, easy everyday luxury that couldn’t be cheaper. I would pair this with white jeans and a rose linen tunic, or last season’s boho-chic peasant blouse and a circle skirt. Given how inexpensive they are, you city gals might want to grab a couple pairs should one pair become smudged with the exhaust, humidity, and restlessness that defines summer in the city.
