About those shoes...

A few months ago I got back into wearing heels... in a rather big way. I had been primarily wearing Crocs and Teva sandals. I still do wear both of those, but I'm increasingly wearing heels to work every day.

It started innocently enough. I'd lost some weight, started clearing out the wardrobe and decided to give skirts a try again but I had exactly one pair of shoes that might work. I still have them, they fit fine. They are a black velvet, low heel Mary Jane style. What you might see on a low-key ballroom dancer.

So, when I was out shopping for something entirely different — tools — I wandered into the shoe department and found low heel snakeskin pumps, on sale of course. They were a bit pointier than the velvet Mary Janes, but still a low heel and very inexpensive. I wore them quite a lot for a bit.

Little-by-little, I ended up in front of sale racks of shoes, matching a new wardrobe as inexpensively as I could manage. The height of the heel kept increasing too. Then... I found I needed a shoe rack (well, 2 really but I haven't found a place to actually put a second rack yet).

So, after an amusing conversation with a very dear friend — who hasn't learned yet not to joke about these things with me (you know who you are and I hope you never stop joking, btw!) — we determined I have a bit to say about shoes... and it's not terribly Mac related. So I've started ;)
