Different shoes make me feel different. I’m mostly in flats but different flats still conjure up a myriad of feelings that I cannot word coherently.
Nue Car Print Block Heels – (key in ignition, engine start up noise, rackety rumble of an old car) It makes me feel like an weird old car that sticks out like a sore thumb amongst traffic because of the colour and shape.
Cotton On crackled silver flats – A little mad and happy. Like I’m wearing aluminium foil, shiny side up.
Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes – Like Nate Archibald’s BFF when they hit Hampton over summer.
Those are what I feel for most of my flats… but heels, wedges, platforms, stilettos.. (as long as they hover above 2 inches), they just make me feel like a slut.
Everyone looks awesome in heels, it gives them lengthy legs and curvy calves. (Well it kinda does to me too, just like it should on another other normal girl.)
I admire those people who LIVE in heels.. who wear heels everywhere and have long(er) legs everyday.
But I feel like it’s a SIN especially when I look at my profile in the mirror and see that I have some spindly things under my heel that’s entirely unproportionate to the rest of me.
Am I weird?
To make matters worse, I’ve fallen head over heels over the sluttiest pair of block-heel/heels/platform/sandal/shoes that one can ever imagine.
I do like the colour, the duo-texture heel, wood and cream-something, but I don’t like the gold in it (silver-is-cooler-than-gold phase I’m having. (Isn’t it weird whenever someone points out the phase they’re in? Like I know that I’m having a phase and I’m not getting out of it…))
And like, animal skin is like, sooo slutty?!?!?!? (OMG I’m beginning to sound like one! If bimbo=slut=bimbo). My feet would feel so exposed! Cleavage!
They’re USD110 and I’m probably only gonna wear them twice. Once to an event I have in mind… and er.. I haven’t thought about the other one. But still I’m gonna ask – SHOULD I GET THEM?
To leave you with an un-slutty image of me, here’s my boyfriend and I spending the day at Haji Lane eating ice cream with shoes that cover our feet completely. No photo evidence but I assure you that they were.
1 scoop of whisky and prune, 1 scoop of sea salt macadamia
