#98 - On wearing heels

This was one of my shoe saves from last week, but I'm a bit late with posting again. After my post on too-short dresses last week, I bought another short dress, but I tried to find a way of making it look longer. It didn't really work.

I think the problem was that the skirt I wore under the dress wasn't as full as the skirt part of the dress, so it looked a bit strange. I'm definitely going to invest in some proper tulle skirts of all different lengths and colours, and I'm sure that will help.

My shoes were bought from a random shoe store in town on sale a year or two ago, but I must say, I really love them! They're a bit sparkly for everyday wear, but they're so pretty and velvety.

I happened to overhear a girl talking about wearing heels the other day, and I just wanted to share this story because I can't stop thinking about it. She said "I'm still enough of a slave to fashion that I try to wear heels to work." I was horrified because it's such a negative way of thinking about it. I never feel like a 'slave' to fashion. I love clothes and shoes, and putting together outfits. I know not everyone does, but if you don't like a particular type of clothing/shoes, why wear them? I know a lot of girls who just wear flats to work, and there's nothing wrong with that.

I generally wear flats on my way to work, and change them once I get there. But when I'm sitting at my desk, taking off my boring flats and putting on my gorgeous heels, I never think "Ugh, here we go again." I always think "Yay! Look at my beautiful shoes!"

How can shoes like this make you feel anything but happy?!


  1. On the foto at least the underskirt looks nice with the dress! I always love your dresses! But reading the part about the girl, I also can't understand the feeling. I'd rather hate having to wear boring shoes - luckily the places where I interned were pretty relaxed! But people should definitely wear something they feel comfortable in, there are so many office appropriate low heels and flats that I don't really see a reason why one should choose a style one dislikes...

  2. I love looks great in my beautiful feet

  3. I think it mlooks awesome. Might be a good idea to sew a patch of tulle at the end of each dress so it's more comfy than wearing a skirt under it
