Although I wouldn’t describe my style as traditional in any sense, I do love classic elements in fashion that are timeless pieces a part of many women’s wardrobes. Stripes are probably high up on the list, and of course, a black and white combo is traditional as it get. But since my edgier and eccentric side always makes their way it an outfit, I do see myself trying to experiment with pieces that appeal to other women… but perhaps, I really did not want to wear.
Hey, I’m being honest.
So, in an attempt to think outside of the box, I figured it was time for me to buy a pair of heels.
No, I do not wear simple heels.
I always felt like I looked like the Kebler Elf in them, and besides for the obvious factors of the shoes probably being uncomfortable to walk in and even more terrible to wear all day, I figured “not for me”. However, when I bought this amazing ball-gown inspired skirt, it was meant for something different. Normally, wedges would be a go-to (which I still fully support wearing), but the uber feminine aspect of the skirt, and the gorgeous Kate Spade Jenny Bag, needed a shoe with an Audrey Hepburn-esque nod to it.
Hence, a simple and classic pointed heel.
Not bad for a pair of $24 shoes bought at Forever 21. Honestly, they did not kill my feet, were comfortable and not too high – which I think is what was turning me away from heels in the first place. I have no desire to be one of those girls who can’t walk in their shoes. But, for my first pair of “big girl” shoes, surprisingly, they grew on me.
