My mom has opined ugly parents often produce beautiful spawn.
And here's an example and perhaps proof of her hypothesis.
God awful 80's jewelry parts from my jewelry cemetery + plastic Croc shoes. Those giant shiny bits are from Dawn's People Give Me Stuff largesse.
Mix together and imagine the worst but smile at the crazy cute combination.
Yes, as I've said before, almost everything can be helped with a little plaid ribbon.
Enjoy your cute shoes,
