I was going to do this post on Friday morning but I hurt my back and I can't sleep. I may have a broken rib or it is somehow out of place and your guess is as good as mine as to how this happened. All I know is I am in major PAIN. So to entertain myself, I took pictures of all my sandals. I couldn't take the pictures with my feet on the floor because I tan the color of my hardwood floors and it was hard to tell my legs from the floor. Weird, I know, but then again, so is this post!

Leather reefs
Havaianas with the Brazilian flag, a gift from my Brazilian exchange student
Leather tevas
Not quite a flip flop
Leather rose in green
and in blue
This picture had to be rotated so you could see what these sandals are. These are my favorite because they are so unusual.
These remind me of fireworks.
Boring, basic Rainbow flip flops.
Fuschia BCBG fancy sandals.
and bejeweled
These are shell and bead and the only sandals I have with straps.
These my mother made for me. They kind of look like slippers and feel that way too!
These are the basic black reefs that I wear every day, which explains why
my feet look like this with no flip flops on.

I love it! So cute...I love sandals and flip flops, too! I can't remember when I last wore a pair a regular shoes!!! And who cares when we have so many great flips to wear!

Serena said...

OUCH on your back pain...I can relate to the pain because I have an old back injury that flares up frequently. Rest up.

DownUnder we call them thongs, not flip-flops, and I LOVE your collection!

Sorry to hear about your back...but I love your collection. I love shoes. In fact, shoes are kind of a religion for me ;-)

Not to be a weirdo or anything, but it looks like you have some purty little skinny ole fair! and I would give anything for a flip-flop tan-line...actually I would give anything for a tan-line in general I'm the palest haole in Hawaii har har har!

And what's up with crazy anonymous??? some people!

Hi Tamerie. Sorry to hear you are in pain, It might be a rib out and easily adjusted by a chiropractor [i know this rib pain and it's not pretty. I once put a rib out just walking in a strong wind]. So... this is one large thong & sandal collection. Makes me wonder how many other shoe types you have? he he Thanks for coming by my way and your sweet comments. I am glad to have entertained you.

Rita said...

What? How did you hurt yourself? I miss seen you too and I can't wait for the Sale! Are you coming? Ciao
P.S. are the flip flops for sale?

Kelly said...

oh poor you! i'm so sorry you hurt your back. but what a good sport you are to post all the same. and your sandals made me smile! i love all shoes but i am such a flip flop girl. those with the bikinis are too much fun. rainbows are my very favorite. i don't think they are boring at all, no, no! they're sexy! i hope you are up on your feet with no pain very soon!

Petit Coterie said...

What a great collection! So sorry your in pain, there really is nothing worse. Feel better soon.


Valerie said...

Oh Tamerie! Ouch! I have a great chiropractor, so let me know if you want her name.

Other than that, I have several favorite pairs of your flip flops, and since I have the same tan line, perhaps you'll let me borrow a pair or two while you are resting up... Just kidding! I thought you'd get a smile out of the idea though :o)

You poor thing. I hope you feel better. You do however, have A LOT of great sandals!

Hello Miss Tamerie!
First and foremost, I hope your back/ribs get better soon. You should make a doctor appt. soon if it doesn't seem to improve. I did something similar last year and I was in pain for about 2 weeks! Made me really grouchy.
Now, about those sandals......Beautiful darling!!!! I especially LOVE the leather rose ones (blue and green!) YOu are so cute!
Now get better soon!!!!


A Vintage Mood said...

You need to get some more flip-flops, girl! I thought I had a lot! So sorry about your back. You're in my thoughts. xoxo
