I caved in!!!

Since this weekend is Tax Free Weekend my sister, hubby, and I headed out to do a little shopping at the mall and some boutiques close to our house.  The hubs was just thrilled, let me tell you.  I was able to get a couple things from The Loft but that was about it.  I didn't have much success elsewhere. :(
My sister and I were a little disappointed with our not so successful shopping trip so I made a casual comment... "We should both just buy something that we would never usually buy for ourselves."  I figured this would make us happy and curb that shopping appetite.
We headed into a boutique we had never been in, Bevello, and browsed the clothes!  Let me tell you it is a super cute store with dresses from tons of designers (True Religion, Michael Kors, BCBG, and more)  I have to give a shout-out to the sales associate who helped us out, whose name I didn't even ask for, because she was really helpful and sweet! :)
So after looking at the clothes, I saw a wall dedicated to Toms.  I have always seen people, teachers, students, basically everyone BUT me wearing these shoes.  Honestly, I didn't see what the big deal was when it came to these homey shoes.  I knew the story behind it but I guess I never really paid too much attention to it.
Well, my sister (Visit her blog!) encouraged me to try on a pair!  Next thing you know, I did.
Guess what I ended up buying?!?!
 You guessed it!  I got the silvery sparkly pair!  They are ridiculously cute and I can't wait to rock them!
I even decided to check out Tom's website to see what other pairs I may like.  I am IN LOVE with...
 The Calculus 101 pair
The Polka Dotted Pair!
I feel like I could start collecting these shoes and wearing these shoes ALL THE TIME! Oh great...a big thank you to my sister who has now gotten me addicted to these shoes. 
So you're turn to share...
Do you have Toms?  Which ones do you like best?
Until next Tom purchase...

  2. I've always heard about people loving them, but honestly, I don't even know where to find them. They are cute though! Why is it tax free this weekend? Do you know about the teacher program The Loft has? I may be the last to know, but I just found out this past week from someone's blog. Have a good week!
