Century 21 not so avant-garde after all

A misguided attempt at finding espadrilles led me to Century 21, the famed discount department store. The shoe department was low on espadrilles, but had a ton of Marc Jacobs shoes, including some very shiny ones. It was clear why they'd ended up at Century 21--many were missing shiny add-ons, many were in either size 5 or size 10, and none made sense for any activity other than lounging around a swimming pool circa 1960. Disappointing, discounted-but-shiny Marc Jacobs... this is becoming a pattern.
