A Shoe Post

Aaah, shoes. I will be forever obsessed with you.

These shoes make me think of Marie Antoinette:




Do not ask questions, young grasshopper. I know not why they bring to mind the young queen. But they are decadent, and if Marie Antoinette lived in the modern world and actually had a budget, I think they would surely grace her feet.

I can't stop thinking about these Dries van Noten shoes:


Aren't they glorious? But even on sale, they are still $511, so they will have to remain a distant dream.

And now- to buy, or not to buy, that is the question:

On sale for $19.99, these babies are a deal. Real leather, and very lovely. The only issue is the heel - 3.5" and wooden. I am terrible at walking (or shall we say tottering) on heels. I've been meaning to practice my heel-walking skills, but are 3.5" heels really the best choice? And aren't wooden heels even harder to walk on then non-wooden heels? Help me out here, lovelies.

I have decided to give you all the links at the end, so here they are, from top to bottom:

♥ Marie Anoinette Shoes: Forever 21 glitter pumps, Sugar pointed toe flat, BKE Sole Napoleon shoe

Dries van Noten platform wedge (These are from Gimme Shoes, which makes me want to sing "Gimme, gimme shoes" to the tune of Britney Spears' "Gimme more.")

I have a pair of very similar Oxford shoes, same heel. I'm usually terrible on walking on heels, but this is not a stiletto, it's a solid large one, so don't worry: if I can you'll surely can too!!!
Good luck :-)

I've never noticed a difference between wearing a shoe with a synthetic heel versus one with a wooden heel. However, if you're uneasy in heels, those brogues might be a nice choice. 3.5" is surprisingly more comfortabl than 4", and because it has a thick heel, it'll give you more support.

Those top three are very, very Marie Antoinette. Nice!

I have the first glittery ones in my wish list at F21...I am just trying to figure out what I'd wear them with! (everything??) also, you should totally go for the 19.99 oxfords. you can learn to walk in heels, it just takes some practice, then you'll love them forever. and ever.
