I had an opportunity to be at the mall yesterday shopping for a present for a friend graduating with her Masters. After getting her gift we decided to browse a bit since my other girlfriend needed some summer sandals. Her parameters - not 4 inches tall and not gaudy. Should be easy enough, right? NO. We found maybe 4 pair that fit the guidelines.
I have seen more than one lady in a suit wearing these.... why? Why would you wear these? I'm short, so I can see the advantage of having super high heels, but come on folks.... these shoes remind me of the "oldest profession."
So that's my rant of the day. Maybe I'm just getting old, or I am just way out of the loop. What happened to modest yet stylish shoes with a 2-3 inch heel? I have to get back into a department store more often to see what passes as stylish. I thought by keeping to my favorite stores I would be in the "know." But apparently Gap, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Black White Store, and J.Crew are staid, boring and old.
I'll go back to the garden now.... without these shoes! Happy gardening all =)
