    Does anybody have any experience with the quality/fit/comfort of Sam Edelmans? I've been looking for a sandal very much like these, but was going to budget up to $100 … Thanks!

  2. Chrissie says:

    KLo – I have two pairs of flat beaded sandals from Sam Edelman. They have held up very well (both pairs are three years old), haven't lost any of the beads or anything and the soles are still in good shape too. They fit pretty true to size for me – I wear a 7.5, my roommate thinks they're a tiny bit narrow, but her foot is wider than mine… Hope that helps! -C

  3. Ellie says:

    Mine were only $60 (Gigi, I think; a more simple flat T strap). I wore them A LOT and they held up well all last summer.

  4. Isabel says:

    I have been eyeballing a similar style in this pair of Lela Rose for Payless for a few weeks now…but I am weary that they will be uncomfortable and that I should just go for the Sam Edelmans.

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
