Thanks to everyone who submitted photos for the trend story I’m working on for the Huffington Post. Keep an eye on my blog and Twitter, and I’ll let you know when it is live. It will either be the end of this week or the beginning of next week, because I still have some interviews to do tomorrow.
Meanwhile, you can submit photos of your flat leather (or pleather) thong sandals for my next story. I’m looking for anything like the sandals I was talking about here.
Send your photos to me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com. Your in-focus, well-lit pictures should be recent — from May 1, 2013, or later. Tell me why you love your sandals and who the designer/store is. Are they comfortable? Also let me know if you want to be identified by your first and last name, first name only or blog name only. Include the URL of your blog. Deadline is Tuesday, July 16. I am looking for bloggers of all ages, sizes, complexions and nationalities so don’t be shy.
No casual rubber flip flops, please!
UPDATED TO ADD: No need to be self-conscious about your toes — even if you have ugly feet like mine. A head-to-toe outfit shot featuring the sandals is fine. You don’t have to do a close-up unless you want to!
UPDATED AGAIN ON JULY 31 TO ADD: I’m going to drop this story for the Huffington Post because I haven’t gotten enough blogger photos. I pondered coercing a good photographer into going out and doing some street-style shots with me because thongs are everywhere, but I decided the time for this has come and gone. It would have been a more interesting story if I’d done it earlier in the summer when I saw people wearing thongs in Paris when the high temperature was only in the low 60s. That showed dedication! Anyway, here (on my blog only) are the three bloggers who did send me photos, plus a comment from Saks on fall’s hot shoe style.
