And they did – perfectly. I walked back to work with a spring in my step and a smile for the rest of the day. As soon as I got there I put them on and swanned around the office showing off the cuteness of the shoes – because the cuteness should be shared around – they make my feet look tiny and make me incredibly tall!
I think these will feature in many an outfit to come – but I do have one small issue. Where I live we don’t necessarily wear heels all day everyday like many fashion bloggers I’ve seen. I love owning heels – they make me feel all grown up, but we normally just wear them for special occasions. As a result I had my booties on for half the day (a mostly sitting down day) and my feet were killing me at the end of it – I had to take them off and wear my flats home. Also my job calls for sensible shoes a lot of the time (setting up events means moving a lot of furniture) so my poor little feet just can’t seem to handle wearing heels all of the time – and most of my heels aren’t exactly what you would call sky high.
So I’ve decided that I a)need a job that calls for wearing heels, b)need to move to a city where its ‘normal’ to wear heels during the day and c)wear heels to work but have a pair of flat sensible shoes that I can change into when my feet decide to die. I need to prepare my feet over the next year for when I decide to move and get that job, whatever and wherever it may be.
