Tiger Feet

Well, maybe not tiger.  Leopard feet really, but I remember Mud performing this song on Top of the Pops (albeit that I was only 6) and it seemed like a better title 😀

Today I have been crucifying my feet  wearing one of my favourite pairs of shoes.  BCBG Leopardskin wedges with a 4 inch heel.

So glad to kick these off – beautiful though they may be! 😀

The reality is that I can hardly walk in them when I first put them on.  I have to take teetering, short steps to keep upright.  However, after 3 hours of driving, standing, and walking, my feet were screaming at me to take them off and I’m very pleased that I have the opportunity to sit with my toes wriggling again, and the circulation getting back to normal.

Why do we do it to ourselves?  More specifically, why have I, the “Natural” Style Personality who likes nothing more than a comfortable pair of shoes, gone out wearing a pair of shoes that cripple me?

Because I love them!

I saw them and I had to have them.  I knew they were wildly impractical, but they were beautiful and that appeals to an underlying part of my Style Personality – the “Dramatic” (and I also have a layer of “City Chic” in there too).  They are comfortable(ish) in small doses – so perfect “car to bar” shoes.  But they’re not for working in.

So, they’ve been kicked off and that will encourage me to stay in the office and catch up with things like blogging because I need a bit of time before I can walk down the hall, out to the car and round the supermarket with them back on my feet, and I don’t have any desire to do a Sandie Shaw impersonation 😀

I'd love to hear your comments on this post
