Broken-hearted over broken jellies

Tragedy struck this Sunday right before brunch. One of my trusty, trademark, nostalgic, flat-out-adorable-I-don't-care-what-anyone-else-says jelly flats ripped at the widest part of my right foot.


Steve Madden jelly flat was 2. R.I.P.

Oh, I wore them anyway, like a good pauper without options, planning to use the "WHAT?! I didn't even notice" routine if called out for tear. (I ended up using Plan B: calling yourself out right away, thereby evoking sympathy before judgment). I know that routine isn't sustainable, so what should I do? Is it time to finally say goodbye to childhood fashion?

Bsh, no. Must. Have. Jellies. Here are some options.


I got really excited when I spotted these sparkly, bright jellies on Pinterest. Turns out they're for toddlers. Moms, you can get these at The Children's Place for $8.


Ah, more like it! I love these grown-up, chic, poppy jelly flats from KG by Kurt Geiger -- on sale for $21.81. Unlike my worn-out grey flats, they wouldn't go with everything. But peeps best watch out when they do.


Same goes for this gladiator-jelly hybrid. BONUS: DSW claims "each color has a delicious, different scent." For $15 it might be worth seeing what happens, no?


These look pretty close to my originals but have the sparkles. They also cost twice to three times as much on Amazon.  


These strike me as the Crocs of jellies. I can't figure out where you get them, and that's probably for the best. Discuss!
