Happened in the nineties.
Not gonna happen again.
My philosophy toward trends that resurge from my pre-teen years is that they should never, not ever be repeated. This includes, but is not limited to the following:
-Tie dye anything
-Schoolgirl skirts (see collage for reference below)
-Utilization of feather pens (a 'la Cher Horowitz...youknowwhichmovie)
But not all of the nineties were bad...oh no, they had their good parts, too...
However, I know some of you are all, "But they're so comfy, Leslie! Give a girl a break!"
I understand and, as a mom who's on her feet 90 hours a day, even sympathize. But y'all, for the love...just don't with the Birks. Yuck. And yes, I'm aware that they come in metallics (!!) and, at least to me, that doesn't boost their appeal enough for me to schlep around in those boats.
For what it's worth, I do understand that doctors and nurses may wear them for comfort. They're saving lives. They get a pass.
If you're in the market for a comfy, easy-on/easy-off sandal with oodles more appeal AND for less moo-lah, check these out.
