I Don't Think You're Ready for this Jelly

Growing up my shoes preference was similar to what it is now- no sneakers unless absolutely necessary.  But my absolute hands down ultimate choice in footwear was alway the Jelly.  I probably wore my first pair at about two years old, and never tired of the choice.  Even when I was in High School and jellies were nowhere to be found (especially on a High School-er), I found a pair in my size at Buffalo Exchange, translucent red, the classic style, and wore them all the time.

I was recently browsing sandals online and came across the category "Jellies".  Well, you can imagine my excitement.  But today's jellies are quite a stretch from the classic styles of years past; and I dont' know... am I ready for this Jelly?

1. Juicy Couture $80
2. Stuart Weitzman $158
3. DVF $75
4. Christian Louboutin $975
5. Stuart Weitzman $198
6. Nina $39.95
7. Burberry $125
8. BCBGeneration $38.95
9. Prada $980
10. Chinese Laundry $39
11. Jimmy Choo $175

Don't get me wrong, I'd wear any of the above any day (especially those Pradas, my goodness!) but still I long for the old $12 T-strap Jelly.  I used to have bagillions, in every color.  Now, even in this internetty age, I could barely even find an image of the old-school faves.  So it goes, C'est la vie.

Bon Weekend my loves! xo Caitlin
