My Favorite Shoes: Tan d’Orsay Sandals

Today’s Looking Back, Looking Forward spotlights my favorite pair of shoes this time of year, Tahari d’Orsay sandals.  These shoes are one of those few items that I’ve owned since I started this blog in 2007.

When I think about why I love these sandals, I remember something that Diane Von Furstenberg mentioned in a Redbook magazine interview (see quote below).  These shoes blend well into just about any outfit I wear and the open cut and color make my shorter legs appear longer.
