I admit it, I'm a bit of shoe freak. Jamie thinks I'm weird, I think I'm about average.
This isn't all of them:
But for me, shoes aren't just about covering my feet. I have shoes that hold memories for me; the Chucks Jamie bought me as a “welcome to your third trimester!” gift, the Manolos I wore to our wedding. The Birkestocks I've had since high school (yes, seriously) and the orange-heeled platforms I wore for my turn on stage with Listen To Your Mother last year.
I will often get obsessed with a pair of shoes and wear them several times a week for a while, trying out different ways of styling them, under the guise of “breaking them in”
And I'm currently obsessed with these Suede Wedge Booties from Toms.
They're cute, they're comfortable, and I will always be a fan of Tom's One for One movement.
Part of why I'm so drawn to these is because it's a real challenge to find a wedge heel that *doesn't* include a platform as well. My height is well-documented here. I love an inch or two heel, because it completes an outfit, but I don't also need a giant platform to put me from freakishly tall to OMG-did-you-see-her-I-think-my-face-barely-comes-up-to-her-elbow tall.
What do you think? Will you rock the bootie this spring?
