So I've been feeling pretty shitty about my weight lately. I have maybe 3 pairs of jeans that fit, it's been too cold for skirts, and I loathe the idea of tights right now. The only thing worse than tight jeans, is the idea of squishing myself into tights. (Which probably wouldn't be as uncomfortable, but my girl-brain refuses to listen to my logic-brain)... So I wound up wearing a shirt dress (open) with jeans-that-fit and ankle boots.
Somehow in the past week I've bought 4 pairs of shoes. Yes, you read that right, FOUR PAIRS. So much for that ban I keep wanting amirite? It all started with a pair of peacock blue sandals by Arche on ebay. Arche shoes are *uber* comfy, ridiculously expensive, and the "funky" non-grandma designs are even harder to come by. So I bid on them expecting to lose, but lo and behold I won! Which is awesome. Most people aren't quite shopping for sandals yet, so I figure I just won on sheer luck.
|Tell me you wouldn't say no to that color either|
|MAGICAL BOOTS OF THE AWESOME|
|Loudest Pants ever - I'm getting over the floral thing because I LOVE THESE.. they fit.|
|Obi material - orange, pale mint, brown|
The first pair was a lipstick red pump with a surprisingly sturdy heel. The ankle strap held these on my feet so good. They were new but had been banged up in the donation bin, I didn't mind the creasing. They looked marvelous with the socks I had on, I wore them to class tonight. I won't be marathoning in them, but occasionally, when I know I'll be sitting, I'll pull these out to feel sassy.
The second pair - a rusty coral red. They're almost an orange. Or possibly pink now that I look at them in different light. I can't tell.
A little scuffing on the toe, a little discoloration on the footbed, but the straps were intact and solid. The heels are a chunky rubber like Campers. They're a Spanish made brand called Wonders, which I'm having issues with googling them right now, but they were miles above the Mossimo and Faded glory shoes sitting on the racks around them.
Plus to me, T-strap shoes always make me think of sexy dancing ladies. I remember watching professional dancers as a kid and loving T-strap shoes. I know some people associate them with primness, but they remind me of dancers. Not quite as quirky as any of the other shoes, but a solid walkable heel that was 4 dollars.
