(I am wearing jeans! Can you believe it? I'm not sure what to do with myself.)
A few weeks ago, maybe it was only two but I can barely remember now, I was contacted by a lovely Danielle of Solestruck.com. Someone liked my blog and wanted to bestow some wonderful shoes of my choosing on me! At first, I was skeptical, but promptly realized my initial reaction was terribly wrong. As it turns out Danielle was lovely and not at all someone creepy! After much hemming and hawing I picked out Jeffrey Campbell Steppin in a brown shade.
Originally my boyfriend disagreed with my choice, and condemned them as Witches (or rather, witchy, but it's much more dramatic if I cast him as a witchfinder in this funny little tale, so that the shoes might be in danger of being burned at the stake, and also so that I may make inapropraite jokes) but has quite seen the genius of these little beauties! They are so comfortable I almost want to die, with the perfect heel height and all. It was quite a hard choice to make however, since I had quite the little list of shoes to choose from. On the upside, they do offer free shipping, and so providing the financial structure that surrounds us does not collapse and force me into clothing-destitution, I may have to reward myself for something innane in the near future!
And, I know, jeans! It's the weirdest feeling, wearing pants. I forgot the difference it makes in things, how much more strangely exposed they make me feel, but in the past few weeks I've been--gallently I think--trying to challenge myself into working with them. I've always admired women who are able to effortlessly compile outfits that look put-together and right while wearing jeans. I am sure that is a statement that goes against all kinds of fashion magazine rules, since a good pair of jeans are always on the must-have list, but there you have it!
