One for One! At Toms you can shop without feeling guilty :-)
Last year in Austin I was at the opening of the Toms concept store . Such a cool shop! Maybe you know this brand because of its classics. A sort of espadrille style loafer that feels like a slipper when you’re wearing it. My love and I always take a pair with us on holiday. So we’re happy that Toms has a flagship store at the Nine Streets in Amsterdam now.
And who thinks that Toms is all about shoes is wrong. They have a very cool collection of sunglasses and recently they launched a bag collection as well. What I really love about the brand is that for every sold item they give something back to communities in Africa who need it. From glasses to shoes and water. One for One! You can imagine that I feel no guilt at all when shopping at Toms ;-).For my last trip to South Africa I scored the perfect spring items at Toms. New sunnies and this happy yellow bag with ikat print on it. And the good thing was that I could wear it as soon as I landed in Cape Town. Summer all over there!
