Jellies

I have an inborn horror of jellies. I was horrified--horrified!--when Marc Jacobs came up with what seemed like a whole line of them (complete with a gladiator version!). What's the appeal of plasticky-rubbery-sticky substance rubbing against your feet, promoting sweat, blisters, and discomfort? Brrrr! I can't imagine an occasion for wearing ostentatiously plastic shoes other than transporting your sun-and-sea-drenched tanned self from the long chair to the thatched-roof bar on the beach and back. (Let's face it, it's not worth it putting any other shoe through the ordeal of sand+sun+seawater. Plus, you don't really have to wear them for long anyway).

So, a resounding no to jellies, for my part. Well, maybe with one exception, due mainly to the extraordinary sale price ($39.95): these Icon jelly slides, with leather insole and upper and "Girl in the rain" print:

Now, I wouldn't be ashamed ordering my Mai Tai in those (and an assorted swimsuit, of course)!

The girls I babysit take "modelage" (sculpture) classes at the Louvre every week, and their teacher wears jellies. Makes sense to me--there's clay everywhere, and she can just rinse them off and hang to dry when she changes back into her Parisian street shoes.

Yeah, that makes sense. I guess I'm objecting to jellies as street wear. And they don't have to be overpriced ($100 for a pair of MJ jellies? I think not!).
