Few things are sadder than when a good pair calls it quits. I personally haven’t been myself since Barbie and Ken split. And don’t even get me started on Rachel and Finn (though something tells me within the next 2 episodes of Glee, that power-couple will probably get back together). So you probably can guess that I was saddened by the recent news that Sigerson Morrison co-founders, Kari Sigerson and Miranda Morrison have left their namesake brand.
In an attempt to lessen my depression, let’s get to talking about this Die Cut Skimmer! What’s a skimmer? Wikipedia via Google tells us that a skimmer is “a small family of tern-like birds in the order Charadriiformes, which also includes the waders, gulls and auks.” There are way too many words in that quotation that I have never heard before. After refining my search and stumbling on to squidoo.com, this is what I have learned:
Think of skimmers as Chuck Taylors with the tops cut off. They’re perfect for summer–easy to slip on and off and they go with everything from a cute summer dress, your hottest pair of short-shorts, or your favorite worn-in jeans. As if they couldn’t get any better, skimmers also come in a variety of colors, designs, and styles!
Muuuuch better. This Die Cut Skimmer is cah-ute. Yes, I just said cah-ute. Please don’t navigate away from this post in shame. Please. I’m salavating over the intricate triangular-shaped cut-out details on this shoe! And the color! Ah! It’s such a pretty golden yellow (not mustard yellow, don’t say mustard yellow. I HATE mustard). Someone buy me a pair, please? I’m sad that Sigerson Morrison are no longer a pair! Make me happy!
Fun fact: May 11th is very soon. Anyone know why I care?
