i am a sensible shoe wearing gal.
i know lots of people say they can't walk in heels, but they don't really mean it. i think that's their way of saying they find high heels awkward or uncomfortable or unnecessary. i think they are all of those things too. but i truly CAN'T walk in shoes with a heel that is raised more than 1.5 cm. over the last 3 decades, i've tried many times but my body rejects them.
a few months ago, in a daring mood, i tried on the cutest 80's-inspired kitten-heeled pumps. they were the shade of cherry popsicles and i so wanted them to like me. then i tried to walk. i took two steps and turned over on my ankle.
that was the last straw. i've come to accept that sensible shoes are my destiny.
here's a picture of my favourite mary janes. aren't they darling?!
