Summer has arrived in London *tears of happiness* and I have this week off work!!!!
Following on from my previous post about the debate over make-up, I follow with the next issue: shoes.
I have never really been a wearer of shoes, in particular heels. I preferred wearing trainers (or ‘crepes’ as I used to call them – London slang) and converses. I wore trainers during 6th form, uni, and even to work. I even wore trainers to raves and clubs on occasion! I bought trainers at least 3 times a year and wore them until the soles wore all the way down.
Like the issue of make-up, it drove my mum mad…..she complained that I did not dress like a woman! That’s not to say I didn’t ever wear heels; I tended to wear kitten heels on one or two occasions and swiftly auctioned them off on eBay. I thought that many of the heels on the high street were nice to look at, but were impractical for the purposes of my life; plus I felt that high street chains did poor quality shoes.
My friend Samantha was like me; she almost exclusively wore trainers until 4 years ago when she started buying the highest heels and supporting my mum’s mission to get me in heels. Thanks Samantha(!)
But in the last couple of years, I have started going through a transformation and have become more open to wearing heels. I have actually stopped wearing trainers to work (my mum was well chuffed!) and have started to place my feet into lady like shoes a bit more often!
Now, I haven’t gone crazy with the heel height; the heels I own are typically 3.5 – 4 inches. they have been featured in my previous posts:
Here is my latest purchase of heels:
|Shoes - New Look|
I always buy black shoes.....so I tried to be different!
I am (slowly) starting to warm to heels; but I will not be giving up my beloved trainers so easily! In fact I think it's time to purchase a new pair.........
