The Way We Used to Dress - The Return of the Espadrille

I love that espadrilles are back.  We wore brightly colored fabric wedge espadrilles from Jacques Cohen with everything when I was growing up and now they are modernized and very chic like these logo ones from Tory Burch.  See them here.

Do you remember how we used to dress?

~Add-a-bead necklaces - I still have mine
~Anything genuine madras
~Lilly Pulitzer shifts
~Engraved jewelry
~Ferragamo Vara pumps
~Grosgrain ribbon headbands
~Bermuda bags (monogrammed, if appropriate)
~Herman Geist cotton t-shirts
~Polo shirts - Ralph or Lacoste
~Cardigan sweaters - the cabled one with covered buttons
~Pullover sweaters, either monogrammed or with the Lilly palm/Polo pony
~Jack Rogers sandals
~Tanner scalloped color blouses, mostly sleeveless, piped with a monogram

So let's celebrate the return of the espadrille....Love these from Manebi.

Here is a new take, complete with ribbons, an updated espadrille for sure.

I love these espadrille mules:

Love this style and this color, again from Tory Burch.

LOVE these black ones from Kate Spade:


  1. Your list -- yes, yes, yes...
    Miss the Jacques Cohen espadrilles. So comfortable. Someone tried to bring them back several years ago in black and navy. So glad I got them...

  2. Yes to everything on your list, with one addition. I was quite proud of my Pierre Deux handbag and matching accessories. I had all the travel pieces, even the hanging bag. I’m going to look for those black Kate Spade espadrilles. Love them!
