When the Hermes Calya Mules (clogs) first dropped, they jumped to the top of several discerning fashionista’s wish lists. They were impossible to get. I scored a pair at the Hermes Dallas store shortly after the initial frenzy and thought I hit the jack pot. Fast forward to a year later and they’ve barely been worn. Do I think they’re beautiful and chic? Yes, but on others.
I’ve come to the conclusion I am not a clog person. I simply can’t stand the sound of them on my hardwood floors. I decided to part with them while still in demand and consigned them on The RealReal. I figured I’d cut my loss early in the game, but they sold immediately and at a higher price than what I paid. No loss at all! I’m glad I didn’t hold on to them too long thinking I’d wear them more in the future. Sometimes, it’s best to accept that not all buys are going to work out as planned and parting with them is the smart move.
