Things I hate, in no particular order:
2. Soprano Saxophones (and by extension, Kenny G)
3. Babies dressed as plants *cough*anngeddes*cough*
4. Gladiator Sandals
I don’t know who started the recent trend of the Gladiator Sandals, but they deserve to be locked in a room and forced to listen to Kenny G while eating tomatoes and staring at Ann Geddes pictures for hours on end. And if that sounds good to you, you seriously need to rethink your standards of fun. So what brought on this recent rant about gladiator sandals? DSW, my favorite shoe store (and a little piece of heaven on earth) sends me emails about sales, trends, and what they call their “style guide.” My sister asked me if I had seen the most recent style guide, so I logged into my email and was greeted by this atrocity:
Why?! For some reason, the bottom of this picture got cut off, but at the bottom it said, “These shoes are great alternatives to flip flops. They’re so versatile, you can WEAR THEM WITH ALMOST ANYTHING!” Ugh! I will tolerate the wearing of these sandals under one condition: It’s the first century a.d. and you’re fighting in the colloseum, because then maybe the lions will have a chance to eat these hideous shoes.
