Day 50: High Heeled, High Life
May 8, 2009 § 4 Comments
Here are another pair of black heels, my killer embossed crocs with the peep toe from Nine West. They help give a touch of oomph to any LBD, or really any little ol’ thing. They have nice covered platform that makes the stiletto more walkable. I generally don’t wear these to work because of the height and the toll it takes on my feet after several hours, as they did today. I wore them for a work event, with the aforementioned LBD and by nights end I was feeling the pain, but I love the shape and the cut. Two of my most stylish friends own the exact pair, in different colorways and textures: green suede, patent, calfskin…and one, Kelly, owns them in 2 or 3 different colors. Can’t say I blame her, I wouldn’t mind having them in another shade or two. Are they a good dose of flair for my closet, already full of black heels, or are they just more of the same?

Date of Purchase: Summer 2008
Circumstances: I was shopping in Northpark for a reason I cannot recall. Who needs a reason, right? I had tried on this same pair of shoes a few months earlier, in yellow suede and in green suede. At the time I just wasn’t sure about the bright colors, so I held off. On this trip, I found them in black croco and loved them so, I delayed no longer and brought them home. Now I’m wishing I had bought a pair of the brights as well.
Compliment Meter: 2. Pleasant comments on the shoes, but my necklace garnered the most attention with somewhere near 12 compliments at the party. Shoe confidence level: High. Outfit confidence: Extra High. Quote of the day from Tracy, “Shoes: a reason to breathe.”
Comfort: Fairly comfortable until hour 3 after standing on very hard floors and the impromptu dance party to Justice in the living room…and the fact that the left shoe does slip a bit. Overall, a 6.5 out of 10.
Worn with: We had a party for the launch of our Fall campaign that I just finished shooting on location, so I got to don them with my LBD by DVF, and this rockin’ necklace from Anthropologie (which garnered quite the attention).
Thoughts: “A 4-inch heel now seems like a little granny heel. Women are just demanding height. We are only doing it because people are buying it.” ~Shoe designer Brian Atwood
Do these babies stay in the rotation or get dumped into the Shoe Graveyard?
