Love at First Sight

So the other day I went in to DSW looking for silver sandals (I need them to be a bridesmaid this summer, plus I have another formal event coming up). I didn’t find any I liked, but I did find these drop dead gorgeous amazing scalloped wedges. I know it wasn’t the responsible thing to do, but I got them, and I’m never looking back.

It just goes to show you might think you know what you’re looking for in the ideal shoe, but sometimes you find a shoe that’s a little unexpected yet perfect for you. Maybe the shoe’s a little out there with its kooky curved wedge, and maybe not everyone will understand. But if you and the shoe are happy together, that’s what counts. In time, hopefully the rest of the world will come to recognize that while they might not want to walk in your shoes, it won’t affect the relationship they have with their favorite shoes to let you wear your shoes. Everyone should be able to marry…ahem, I mean wear whatever shoes they want, don’t you think? For example, some people might wonder: Sarah, why did you choose those shoes? There are way more comfortable shoes out there. But then I might wonder: Why did you choose those Crocs when every single other shoe in the world is more attractive? Maybe neither choice makes sense, but that’s because neither one is a choice. Nobody really chooses to be uncomfortable or to look unfashionable; it’s just what happens when you wear the shoes you truly love.

This may or may not be a metaphor or pretext for another social issue. But I also just really love these shoes. The end.

  1. completely love both the shoes and the tights. I have a hard time walking in wedges (not sure why – I’m great in stilettos), but those would definitely make me think twice….the scalloped edges add such a fun touch of whimsy that’s still work-appropriate.

    • That’s weird! Normally I find wedges are much easier to walk in because they’re more sturdy. Maybe you just like a challenge 🙂
      But you might actually like these, because the wedge is sculpted so thin that it felt like regular heels to me.

  2. I too love your scalloped wedges… in fact when I opened the email and saw them I actually gasped. I envy you your scalloped wedges…
    Also – I fully support your decision to both love whatever shoes you love, wear them proudly and share that love with the world. Rock on sistah.

  3. Those shoes are awesome, and everyone SHOULD be allowed to wear the shoes they want. Just because the religion that some people believe in happens to mention thousands of years ago that loving certain shoes is sinful, it doesn’t mean that you should be forced to be unhappy and shoeless. ❤

  4. Oh, you sly gal, you! What a fun metaphor you created here. I live in Canada where one has been able to commit to whatever shoe one prefers for a long time… Oh heck. GO GAY MARRIAGE! There, I said it and I meant it.

    Love your rockin’ femme self. Keep it up.

  5. I love how you style the top this way as well! Can you just style it 800 ways and I will take notes?

    PS I am in LOVE with those shoes! Scalloped edges! Amazing! And the metaphor was spot on, and I totally agree with you 🙂
