… 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!

    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

    how can they be stowed in the dark? they’re so pretty!!! I totally love the unique heel :)

    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!
