This is one of those cases which I feel bad throwing them away because of the original retail price. So I took these to my cobbler and he gave me a look of disgust. He initially told me to just do away with them, but when I told him the cost he promised to do his best. He was able to attach leather sole to the front and the back. Now I feel a little better as my shoes won't look at me with disdain every time I look at them in the shoe closet. One thing I have learned from this ordeal is to avoid lamb leather with shoes and to add a sole the moment there is sign of wear. How do you take care of your shoes?

Old Chanel Sandal Got Fixed....
I fished out this pair of Chanel sandal from its box after years of exile. Normally Savvy Sis and I do try our best to care for our shoes and bags so this pair is an exception. Savvy Sis borrowed this when she was big and pregnant. When a gal is carrying an extra load, the last thing she really care about is the state of her shoes. I didn't know a gal's shoe size could go one size up during this time of joy. Anyhoo, these sandals came back a little sorry looking.... The front and the back of the leather sole were worn through. I couldn't take a picture of the sorry state as some of you gals might want to throw a book at me.
