I can't believe what I just did. I just bought
sensible shoes. All in all my shoes are pretty
sensible, but I am talking looks-like-slippers,
grandma-ugly sensible shoes.
I tried this pair on during a long sit last week, when
I put them on I felt like I was standing on a pillow-
they have little egg crates inside :) But I was NOT
ready to step into that level of
form-following-functionality, I walked around the
store, feeling as if I was in heaven, but decided
instead to find a better looking pair somewhere else.
I bought a $5 pair at goodwill to last me one trip
until I had time to go shopping, seeing my blistered,
red toes was all I needed to know the egg-crate shoes
are the ones for me. I tried some
cuter-yet-still-comfortable ones on, but chose these
Why would a woman do such a thing? I can see an old
married woman wearing these, but a young vibrant
single gal like me should be in 3 inch fuck-me heels.
I am looking at it like suntanning, it looks pretty
now but makes you look ugly later on. Have you seen
fashonista feet as they get older? Deformed. I am not
kidding- daily wearing of high heels and pointy toes
make feet look fucked up (and less importantly hurt
like hell I imagine)
I decided that having ugly feet will be compensated by
my energy and attitude. I have been complimented many
times on my smile, but have yet to be complimented on
my uncomfortable work shoes. And when I wear
comfortable shoes I am more likely to walk instead of
taking the elevator or tram, so I think it is more
attractive for me to have a nice body in ugly shoes
than an ugly body in nice shoes.
So whats next? Mom Jeans?
mood: practical (too young to be thinking this way!)
