Wow! Thanks everyone for participating in my shoe poll! Currently, more than half of you WOULD buy the shoes! At the suggestion of several readers, I've decided to stake out e-bay for a few days. I did a little browsing on Saturday, and was surprised there were so many options. I didn't find anything that I like better than the Beyond Skin shoe, but there were a few styles that came close. The search continues.
Sometimes I wonder what my wardrobe would be like if I didn't have a corporate job. Every once in a great while, I'll gaze upon my collection of high heels and question if they represent me as a person or if they are simply little extensions of my career. Because on most Saturdays, you'll find me dressed like this:
Hat, scarf, sweater, skinnies, boots. This is my ideal style in a nutshell. Comfy, layered, casual, and just a wee bit trendy. This day was chilly and windy and drizzly...as was all of last week. We finally got some decent weather this weekend, so long-awaited spring ensembles will be coming soon.
It only takes a short while of psycho-analyzing my clothes before I come back around. I genuinely like high heels. Sure, I'd likely have a few less if I didn't dress up for work, but they'd still be a force in my closet. And I would still wear pencil skirts and oxfords and fishnet tights. I would. Perhaps I dress down on Saturdays because it's the only day I'm able to...not because it's the only way I like to. Variety is good.
