I hate to admit it, but I’ve never really paid much attention to the kind of shoes that I wear. Most times, as long as it was borderline matching with whatever else I was wearing, I was okay.
Part of it had to do with the fact that very few stores here had the kind of shoes that fit me well. I have broad feet, and really can’t do killer 6-inch heels. So you see, my shoe wants, not so trendy. It took me nearly 3 months to pick a pair of basic black pumps which ticked all of the boxes that mattered to me. I know, I know…either I am ridiculously choosy, or nobody gets my style here.
Anyway, a couple of weeks back, I went to the mall with a mission – find myself a pair of smart & comfortable black pumps (my current pair had just about given up on me!!!). This time around, I did find one for myself. It’s plain, basic (so much so that the husband exclaimed that how could something like this take me 3 months to find!!!) and extremely comfortable. The kind I like. But before I got to the black pumps, I fell in love with the most perfect pair of red pumps. Just the right red. Just the right heels. Just the right pointedness. Basically, just the right everything! And I was over the moon. It was really love at first sight.
The other day I wore those red pumps to work. And boy oh boy, did people pay attention or what! It just made me realise that shoes can really uplift whatever outfit you are wearing. They can take something from ordinary to classic / chic in just a matter of a few seconds. And just as soon as this realisation hit, I started noticing shoes everywhere. Magazines. People walking on the streets. My colleagues at work. TV shows. Pinterest (of course!!!!).
So well, here we are. Talking about shoes. Pinning shoes. Falling in love with shoes.
I would love to know, what’s your relationship with shoes? Do you consider yourself a “shoe person”?
Have a good week ahead, you guys!
