Hello Blogland!! How are y’all doing??
Todays Fashion challenge was Platforms or Flats.
I must confess I am a shoe freak!! LOVE them!! Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for my wallet!) I have wide feet and am hard to fit. I’m REALLY picky about comfort–I’m diabetic and I like my toes so I am very careful about not rubbing or pinching or such.
I used to love platforms and heels-hey I’m short so every added inch helps! Last summer the Queen of Klutzlevania (me) face planted on the sidewalk at work. I tripped over a crumbly seam. I managed to break my nose, skin my chin, knees, elbows and palms, severely sprain my right wrist and elbow and severely sprained and chipped a bone in my left knee. I was laid up for weeks with a soft cast on my right arm and a brace on my left knee because I couldn’t use crutches. LOADS of fun (not). Daytime TV is a wasteland people-let me tell you!
The repercussions are I can no longer wear heels and platforms–at least anything with height. So now I’m a Team flats, kitten heel or low wedge gal. About 1 1/2 inch is as high as I can go.
You can’t imagine how thrilled I was when I spied these shoes at Kohl’s!! A platform that wasn’t clunky or heavy and gave EXCELLENT support!!! I found a black version at Ross a week later! I wished they came in more colors because I would’ve brought them ALL. They have a kind of retro vibe with the little peep toe. And they were like clouds on my feet all day long. Did I mention I love them??
Question for the peanut gallery–something is just not right about these crops. Is it the length?? Do they need to be shorter? Or would tapering them in a bit help? Appreciate the feedback!
Tomorrow is Tribal or Floral-can’t wait to see what everyone is doing for this challenge!
Oh yeah–now that you are up to speed with vajazzling (and if you need to get up to speed-check this post Blinging to a new low) do you wonder if the stray rhinestone you see on the ground fell off someones outfit or their vajazzling glue had a failure?? GRIN!!!
