Tuesday Morning Miracle!

Filed under: Shoes — Miss Plumcake @ 11:30 am

See? SEE? THIS is the sort of good thing that can happen to a girl if she lives virtuously. The shoe gods reward her by giving her beautiful flats that fit her fatly feet!

Last week I ordered a pair of Delman flats. It was my first experience with the legendary American house who most notably made the white sandals sported by one Miss Marilyn Monroe in her famous flying skirt shot, figuring I’d get them home and have to stretch them out on my shoe forms.

BUT NO! Their 11M fit my typically 11W (sometimes 12W) feet beautifully, the leatherwork is even prettier than the pictures and it is distinctly possible that I got seriously busted at a traffic light when a family in a RAV4 caught me rubbing my cheek against the smooth, unworn leather sole, caressing it lovingly and perhaps aiming some baby talk in its direction (who’s mama’s little miracle flat? Is it you? Is it you? Res rit ris! Res ru are mama’s wittle miracle flat!)
Ahem. Perhaps I have shared too much.

Delman's Engage! It's a miracle.

Plumcake specifically recommends the “Engage” flat whose buttery leather upper would lend a luxe finish to your casual weekend wear. Even better, these and other Delmans are on sale at for more than 50% off the regular price, a savings of over $175!


  1. Ooh!! I’ve been on a hunt for some nice metallic flats. SOLD!

  2. Plumcake, thanks for the tip. I’ve never tried Delmans myself, but it sounds like you and I have very similar feet, so I ready to give them a whirl. I can totally relate to the shoe stretchers. I go through about 2 sets a year :-)

  7. Delman flats always make my wide-ish feet look tiny. Love them! Bluefly always has at least a few styles in stock.

  8. Those are so yummy! I wonder if I can convince my fiance I need another pair of shoes for our big day…

  9. Tell me more about these shoe stretchers, please. I wear a 6-6.5 and most ranges don’t start in wide widths until size 7. :(
