on the cliffs of your wildcat charms

I have resisted platform flipflops for as long as I can remember because to me, they did not bring anything to mind but garish pink monstrosities, overwhelmed by diamond embellishments and Juicy Couture logos. My mind set quickly changed when I saw these adorable little wooden ones for 12 dollars in chinatown. The fabric straps were absolutely hideous though, so I covered it with some scrap leather trim I had lying around. (I know, I should really start calling this blog, heatherheartsDIYs, but I can't resist.) Anyway, they are great for a gray day like today, because you're far above all the dampness.  The weather has gotten colder, and I think I am a real Canadian because after not even a week of being able to wear shorts comfortably, it is almost a relief to throw on jeans and a big jacket. (I still took full advantage of every warm day with lovely summer clothes of course.)
