Shoes-day: Nordstrom Rack – Coach Juanita & Tory Burch Alexa Flat Sandal

I was doing some last minute Prom purchases (dark socks, t-shirt, small card wallet, etc) and headed to Nordstrom Rack for those little things. I grabbed them first and then headed over to the Shoe section. There are always lots of new lovelies to check out.

I first spotted the Coach Juanita Flip-Flops {pin} which are very casual and super comfortable. They have extra padding in the heel and ball of the foot. I get Coach shoes here and there but showing off the “Signature” always seemed weird to me. This time it’s very subtle compared to an all-over print on a loafer or flat. They were $40 and seemed like a good price for something I’ll wear around the house or slip on last minute to run to the grocery store. They’ll get lots of use this Summer and hopefully beyond if they are as comfortable as they look for long periods of time.

I saw a few Tory Burch shoes I liked but not any in my size 7. That is, until I was leaving the store and saw a separate display of just TB shoes. There, I found the Alexa Flat Sandal. I had my eye on them last Summer but was never able to purchase them. There was not a size 7 available so I tried a 6 1/2 to see if I needed to size up or not. I ended up sizing to a 7 1/2 and probably should have gotten the 8. The strap is really short and I could only buckle it on the last hole. I may need to punch one more in for them to be a little more comfortable. I read a review on the Saks website that spoke of the short strap so this shoe wasn’t an exception. 
Last year they were offered in a tan/brown as well as the Navy. Nordstrom Rack only had the Navy available for purchase. They just buckle and are not uncomfortable or tight but I’m hoping the strap stretches just a bit. 

My store had lots of Winter Clearance available but I find that very frustrating to sort through even though there are some great deals to be had. Plus it was a Saturday so the store was a little crazy.

Have a Great Day!

    I bought the Alexa in tan on sale last year after lusting over them for months (they sold out everywhere but popped back in my size at Saks) but ended up returning them because they were uncomfortable (the leather is very stiff) and looked weard as my toes didn't show through the "peep" (and I saw that yours don't either). Too bad because they are so pretty…
