These were cool back during the "gladiator sandal" trend. I bought them for $5 at a store in Japan, so don't judge me too much. Unfortunately, I only wore them once (with a costume). I'm sure you can imagine why...
They were taking up valuable real estate in my closet, so they either had to go or change. Since I'm doing Mission: $100 Closet, I can't really afford to buy new sandals. So, I decided to give them a haircut and see how they look.
Guess what? I like them! Best part: they were my EASIEST refashion ever. They took me about 5 seconds to cut. I even wore them to work the morning that I did it. Yeah, I did this one morning while looking for a pair of flats to wear with this outfit.

Also, my title mentions a camera. WHY? If you can't tell, my picture quality is terrible. Sure, it could be the rushed morning self-photography, BUT it's an old point-and-shoot camera. I'm super excited that Moneyman (aka the frugal husband) and I spent this weekend shopping for a DSLR. We've narrowed it down to 2-3 favorites, so we want to read a few more reviews and shop around for the best price. Anytime we spend more than a couple hundred bucks, we spend A LOT of time researching it. Hopefully, my next posts will be shot with a much nicer camera!
