The Story of my TOMS

To most of you, TOMS might be shoes that you think are cute, or maybe too trendy, or boring, or, just, you know, another pair of mid-price shoes out there you can buy.


To me, TOMS are the cat's meow.  They make me purr with pleasure when I behold them.  When I slip that beautiful shoe on my foot, I have a footgasm.  To me, in Brieism, TOMS literally translates to LUST.

So, my dear readers, I thought it was about time you meet the objects of my desire.  May you see them and gasp at their beauty and comfort.  May you never be the same again, after beholding their amazement:

First, may I introduce my Purple Hearts.  I happened to snag the last pair in the ENTIRE MALL, and I thought to myself, Dear Brie, this may be your version of dying and going to Heaven and getting to do The Sex with 40 virgins or something - oh be still my heart squeal I love them!


Next, we have Sparkles.  No explanation for name necessary.  These babies could easily be worn while dancing Disco or impersonating Michael Jackson.  I love these ones so much, I wanna take them behind the jr. high school and get them pregnant!

And, we have my first pair I ever procured - My Butterscotches.  These beauties give me self-esteem and are utterly pleasurable on my feet.  And I even tasted them - they are indeed as sweet as the candy they were named after!  ;)


So, I'm thinking about procreating with them and having some little Broms running around.  Ah, how sweet!


May you buy some TOMS.  May you honor your feet enough to own them, love them, and rock the hell out of 'em.  :)

Well... I just wanted you to know twin... That I started buying TOMS first and that, just because YOU beat me to a blog about their fantasmic-ness.... doesn't mean... I donno.. I got nothing...
I'm just kidding.. I'm just jealous that I'm liking the 3 colors you have a teeny bit more than my 4..... I love them...

brie said...

Steph, YOU HAVE 4 PAIR?! What colors/styles? How did I not know this about my bestie??

Shells said...

Okaaaaay, I'm sold. I must buy them tomorrow. And I will venture 1.5 hours by car to get them! Because that's how long it takes me to get to Nordstrom. Yes, I cried when I found out right before I moved here. Don't even get me started. Excellent color/texture choices, Brie!

brie said...

Yes, Shells! I converted someone! My mission is complete!

Stephanie said...

yes my TWIN... I believe I was wearing a pair when I saw you last week.... I have all canvas pair... I have not yet procured a pair that has the lovelies of cordoroy.. I have bright red, black, charcoal grey, and olive green...
I need to get some better textured ones.... But... Haven't yet....
Must do soon... Maybe that can be part of our next adventure?????
Miss you Twin!

brie said...

yes twin! Getting a pair before your getaway is in order I think. :) SOON!

I just bought my first pair a week ago in ash gray. I probably should be embarrassed that I have worn them everyday since then but... I'm not!

You all have a problem. :)

Stella said...

Is this the brand that gives 1 pair to shoeless children for every pair someone purchases?

I have been meaning to check these out...I think I will do that right now! Love your pairs!!

I think my favorite are the purple ones. They look the best with straight-leg jeans. (Of course I could be bias, purple is my favorite color.)

=) Great choice.

Missy said...

But, Brie! You left out the most amazing part of why you should love your TOMS....because they rock in terms of humanitarian pursuits! This is shoe-shopping at it's justifiable best!

When are the boys gonna get their pairs?

wooops...i did forget to mention how awesome it is that they donate a pair to someone in need of shoes for every pair bought: one for one. it's so cool - buying these shoes ALSO makes me a humanitarian! ;)
