… they’d tell you that they feel pretty unappreciated. They sit in the dark closet for months at a time, hoping every morning they’ll get picked to get out and stretch their insoles around town, only to be passed over for those boring, practical flats again and again {yawn}.  And they just can’t understand, because — not to toot their own horn, but — they’re so cute and sassy!

Then on this particular morning, just as they’d resolved to the fact that they’d spend eternity on a shelf, they got picked. Their excitement quickly dissipated, however, when they remembered how tough it is to hold up 125 lbs of wobbling, clumsy stylista {with all the grace and coordination of a baby Bambi} on their delicate narrow platforms.

Hopefully she picks the flats tomorrow.

    Love these shoes! I own several pairs that I sadly never get to wear, especially now that I’m living in a real city and walking everywhere. Looking at them in my closet makes me so sad.

    Also, that bag is fab!

    I know I have a few of those kind of shoes in my closet. That does look like a tricky platform.
    Your hair looks really nice half up!

  • Michelle 09/27/2011 at 4:22 pm

    Love the shoes and your outfit.

  • Marisa 09/27/2011 at 3:22 pm

    Your shoes are incredible! I wish I could pick them up at Macy’s now! Your overall outfit looks super comfortable and is well put together. Just what every girl needs!

  • Kristin 09/27/2011 at 1:17 pm

    Those are the cutest shoes! I’m glad they got picked! And I also love the way you wrote about them. So clever! I would love it if you would check out my blog and see what you think! http://buttonspockets.blogspot.com/

  • Andrea 09/27/2011 at 12:54 pm

    I just love those shoes on you! Every time you wear them I get the urge to go out and find myself a similar pair, but they’d probably suffer the same sad fate :)

  • laura go (@delightedlaura) 09/27/2011 at 12:06 pm

    LOL at the Bambi reference. I have many a shoe like this. It is so hard to not give special attention to all your shoes! I love these ones though. Very classy and sassy indeed!
