Readers, I don't think I've ever felt so ambivalent about a shoe before. Let me explain my dilemma. You see, I'm trying to introduce more comfortable shoes into my wardrobe - walking everywhere in heels is really taking its toll on my poor feet. I love Re-Mix Vintage Shoes, and their 40s "wedgies" have been calling my name lately (just try to say "wedgies" with a straight face).
I ordered a pair of their Gloria wedges in red, which I love, but I don't think they're the comfortable walking shoe I was looking for. But goodness - they're cute, aren't they?
So I seem to keep coming back to the Greta shoe, which is also a true reproduction of a 40s wedge but has a lace-up design.
I look at it one minute and think "Cute! Quirky . . . but cute." Then I look back the next minute and think "Good lord, those are some weird looking shoes." So, which side are you falling on? Weird or cute? Yea or nay?
While you're at it, if you could recommend some cute, comfy, vintage-style shoes to wear with skirts, that would be awesome. What are you into - wedges, saddle shoes, Keds, Chucks? Do tell!
I will now close with a new picture of Henry.
P.S. Just as a follow-up to yesterday's post, I want to again apologize to anyone who took my comments as demeaning to homemakers or stay-at-home moms. It was not my intention at all, it was rather a failed attempt at a breezy tone. Jeff has now forbidden me from "blogging while cranky." BWC - it's a crime, people! Today you'll see that I've stuck to the less controversial topics of shoes and kitties. Who could be cranky while blogging about shoes and kitties?!
