Shiny as in the sparkle of a diamond. The bling, bling of cubic zirconia. The twinkle of a star in the velvet darkness of a midnight sky. I love all of this. So, it's understandable that when I saw these I longed to have them.
Then I remembered these
and my inability to walk in them.
But, oh, how I wanted to at least try them on. So I did.
I also saw these shiny stilettos. I believe Daughter has a pair.
Nothing's changed since the zebra pair of shoes. I still can no longer walk in stilettos. SIGH. Yes, all caps because is was a loud, heavy sigh. Ah, well, no matter.
I did however, find some other shoes with bling factor that were a bit more my height.
I didn't buy them though, not practical enough. However....
are on my list of shoes I want, need and will most definitely consider buying. Maybe not at all at once.
Truth be told, I'll probably end up buying none. Wearing them to work would not be practical, eight hours on my feet dealing with adolescent angst is not conducive to fancy shoes. And, occasional wear-them-to-church-on-Sunday wearing doesn't justify the price.
Why am I so pragmatic??? Arrrgh!!!
Maybe I need to throw caution to the wind, live on the edge and buy one of the above. Suggestions as to which are welcome. Seriously, throw in your two cents. Okay? Okay.
