… 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.

  3. 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 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 :)
