Last week business took me to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. It is quite a charming place. In one of the tourist shops, I found a line of shoes by Lindsay Phillips that were a lot of fun. You start with a basic sandal or shoe, then change the look by changing the embellishments. The flip flops have velcro on the straps and another line has a heavy duty snap that allows you to change the decorations. I was like a kid in a candy shop. Let me show you what I am talking about.
Here is the basic sandal I purchased. (These photos are off the web site.)
Here are a couple of the embellishments I purchased.
This is where a good website can be highly entertaining. The Lindsay Phillips website shows what your shoes look like with each decoration.
Here are the flip flops:
Here are a couple of the changeable straps:
and now, with the sandals
I purchased the snap-on embellishment because the snap ons looked like they weren’t an afterthought and, quite frankly, the velcro straps looked a little cheesy. You can see the velcro lifting on the corner of the orange straps above and I could see that happening with a fair amount of walking.
The shoes and sandals seem to be well constructed and are just the ticket for casual dress days.
