a sweet girl came to order these TOMS a couple of weeks ago. she lives across the street from sandy creek bible camp in washington, texas and grew up attending every summer. this summer she'll be a camp counselor and wanted a pair of TOMS to match their camp colors. cute cute cute! maybe some of her campers will want to order a pair as well. SCORE!
these handpainted TOMS are so feminine and elegant. we've been painting lotus flower TOMS for a while with great success, so to go along with the spring season and the blooming cherry blossom trees, we painted this pair. customers have found that they're a perfect addition to any shoe collection. because they incorporate brown, black, and grey, these TOMS are guaranteed to match almost anything in your closet. plus the touch of pink is a sweet surprise.
for some reason, these handpainted TOMS remind me of a circus. clowns? something?! maybe it's the stars. they're so dreamy. a girl custom ordered this pair, and she was very particular about what she wanted in each section and what colors she wanted to use. it paid off! she has a completely unique pair of TOMS. no other person in the universe has a pair just like these. wow wow wow!
this pair of TOMS was a custom order placed by a mom for her high school daughter. we have pictures in the store of lots of our old creations and she loved this fun color combination. i originally painted a pair of TOMS like this for myself. they were my very first pair. the day i put them on was the day i fell in love with TOMS. my feet have seen very few pairs of other shoes since.

these funky fun TOMS incorporate layers of paint washes, permanent marker designs and finally splatter paint. the effect produces wild and crazy patterning that probably doesn't match anything in your closet but inevitably matches everything. so cute and perfect for summer!
