In Her Shoes

When I saw this in the news tonight my heart just soared. Definitely for a good cause and I'd encourage anyone in that area to sign up (too bad I don't know any, so for you peeps who happen to be there, please do participate). I'm all for women's rights and the whole nine yards, and when it becomes as fun and fashionable like this, hey I get excited! Look at these guys, how cute is that?

Since I'm nowhere near to join in, I pledge my men to walk in heels and take their pics while doing it, I hope my dear husband and kid will walk in my too-tight-for-him and too-big-for-him shoes and support me. If they think I'm nuts then at least they'll know the length I go to look good! I bet it'll teach them a thing or two about keeping good posture.

In a different development, the gorgeous WendyB did wonderful posts on shoes, her lovely collection and those that she tried on and took pics of. Check out the Miu Miu Tea Cup Pumps, I've fallen in love with the red ones the first time I saw them last month. Vivid imaginations of me as Alice having tea with Madhatter flashed through my mind just looking at these beauties... And the brown leather Alaias, they give me the heart palpitation....

If you still hadn't noticed, this post is on shoes and will be all about shoes, please bear with me, no I'm not done yet. Gracious, kind and lovely friend, Ruby, also managed to turn my world upside down a few days ago. If I hadn't the pressing need to get to work I swear I'd never have been sorted out. Look at her cute purchase. I wish I could get away wearing flats to work, hang on let me re-phrase it - I wish I was 5' 9" to be able to wear flats to work everyday. Being 5' 2" won't get you noticed if you were to walk this wonderful earth in flats all the time. Ruby is a lucky girl, for being tall and for her recent purchase that will walk Paris this summer. You go, girl!

OK peeps, I need to go look for those shoes to fit two pairs of feet into, I have my own worthy cause teeheeheeee....!

I'm around 5' 2" too (1.61 cm).
We're very petite :)

LOVE shoes! I wear flats mostly, even at 5'3". I have to use inserts to support my arches, or else flats hurt.

Lynn said...

Yep RCT, I do the same whenever I wear flats too, it awfully hurts when the inserts get worn out and I forget to replace them!

Elisabeth said...

I love how cute that picture is! Haha!

Dear Lynn:
I don't think I have mentioned it before but one of the benefits of friendship with me as I have a weird thing I do to my friends--I imagine that they are all the same height as me. I am not sure how or why I do it--but I always have. So, to me you are 5'9". So, get the shoes, and I am sure with your beauty, charm and charisma you will get noticed no matter what shoes you wear.

Elisabeth: I know! Aren't they great? I'd take my man out on a fancy dinner if he walked a mile in heels!!

Ruby: You are such a darling. A lucky darling :). If I bought those Rainbow flats all that get noticed will still be the fabulous shoes, hahaha!

Although certainly there are advantages being petite, Aisha would definitely vouch on that, I'm sure!

interesting concept of the walk a mile in her shoes thing.

Natasha said...

what a cute way to draw attention to a great cause!

That is really cute, seeing those boys in heels. Yet, despite the agony of heels, I am a sucker. I love heels and at 5'4", they love me. But yes, I so agree with LBR that you could absolutely rock the ballet flats and still be fabulous and noticed. :)

Lynn said...

Hey Natasaha! Yes, in this case they're definitely cuter walking than running the mile in nike's. Thanks for passing by and dropping a comment!

B: Thanks for visiting, too. I'm just like most girls too, I've a weakness for heels. Thanks for the vote of confidence but believe me, I still haven't found the right flats. I will one day go to Coach to check Ruby's flats out. I'm afraid of falling in love and not being reciprocated, LOL!
