I Hit the Sidewalk and This is How it Starts

Yesterday while walking home from the bus I kept telling myself over and over again in angry whispers "You are NOT Victoria Beckham, you are NOT".

Aside from my penchant for anything grandpa looking, why was I saying that you ask? Because I'm not a heel person. I don't walk in them, I hobble in them. Or I do this wierd stiff leg bambi-just-learning-how-to-walk thing in them. If you saw me, you'd want to take my ovaries from me.

Which is why I was excited when I saw these beauties because they have these magical powers that let me walk the way I walk in flats. Which made me cocky that I can now probably climb MOUNTAINS in them. And when you get cocky you get hurt. Which is why when I was two blocks in from my seven block treck home, already limping like I got shot in the knee, I was whispering angry lectures at myself. Some snipetts included, "yeah, 'easy peasy' my ass" and "put your training wheels back on, you're not ready".

Shit got #dark. Seriously, someone take my female card away from me.

  3. I know how you feel, I never wear heels in the day cos they hurt! I wear them when I go out at night but alcohol is often involved so the pain is numbed haha! They do look lovely though, so does the cardi!

  21. Love this outfit! The cardigan is awesome. And the shoes look great - I know exactly what you mean about the downfalls of thinking you've found the most comfortable heel ever... What happens to me normally is that I walk round the house in said shoes for a while, get all excited, leave the house and am 5 minutes into my journey when it all goes to hell and they hurt haha :)

  22. I think most females feel the exact same way about walking in heels. Others pretend they don't feel that way.

  27. Such a cool outfit! I feel your pain, heels are lovely and I suppose I can walk in them, but they most definitely weren't made for walking... I should seriously start carrying flats in my purse :D

  28. What 'She's Dressing Up' said above; always do that. Walk around the house thinking I've nailed how to walk in heels or I've found a pair of heels with magical powers and then get round the corner from my house and want to cry a bit and hobble back home! I do have some ankle boot platforms that really do have magical powers though. I really can run in them.
