My crazy shoes

June 15, 2011 at 9:21 am , by

My boss thinks I’m crazy. No, really. You should have seen her face when she saw the shoes I was wearing yesterday. Actually, a lot of people think I’m crazy for the heels I wear. But to me, they make perfect sense.

You see, I’m 5’1″. (Well, really 5′ 3/4″ but don’t tell anyone.) And in this glamorous fashion industry filled with statuesque beauties, I can often feel a little intimidated if I choose flats on a day when everyone else is wearing heels. (And believe me, most people working in fashion wear heels everyday.) But I promise – I’m not crazy enough to wear uncomfortable shoes. Anything that pinches my toes, causes major blisters or makes the balls of my feet throb, gets left in the back of the closet (or the shoe graveyard under my desk). And lucky for me, I consider sky-high heels to be comfortable with one caveat – there’s got to be a platform in the front. I don’t know what I’ll do when this platform trend is over because it really saves me everyday.

So, other than my need for a little extra height (with a 4-5 inch heel, I can actually be…not tall but…average!), there’s one other reason why I wear these crazy shoes. I like them. And isn’t that what fashion is all about?

So, tell me…what crazy trend do you follow just because you like it?
