OK, I'm finally getting around to part 2 of this week's This is... theme (chosen by Hip Hop & Banana Bread). It's funny really, that I don't at all consider myself a 'shoe person', as I really don't own many pairs of shoes. But I have realised that I do REALLY LOVE the shoes I do have.
I decided on the shoes above (by Think!)as my favourites, as they are the first pair of heels I have ever owned that are ridiculously comfortable. Granted, it is not much of a heel, but it's enough to look dressy, and yet I can still walk as far as I need to without my feet killing me, or my dodgy hips getting cranky with me. Plus, they look great with everything - dresses, jeans, pants. What else can I say - I really love 'em.
And yet, I seriously considered these other two contenders:
In Summer, I pretty much live in my Birkenstock sandals.
And I simply can't do a post about shoes without showing you this pair, that I have only worn a handful of times, and yet they are the most perfect looking shoe. I feel like Alice in Wonderland when I wear them.
That is, if Alice in Wonderland wore RABBIT TRAPS SNAPPED ONTO HER FEET!!!!!!!!!
Although they look great, these Allanah Hill shoes with the little ladybugs on the toes take the phrase 'suffering for your fashion' to a whole new level. The girl in the shop assured me they would stretch and become really comfortable. They didn't. I had them professionally stretched too. I nearly cried when it didn't work. So I have a love/hate relationship with them I guess. I do wear them on occasion. But only to seated events......
