I adore my recently purchased BCBG Mendel Wedge Booties, but I've discovered that one needs to walk a lot in college. Even though I thought my high school campus was fairly spacious at five acres and classes spread all around, I was able to wear heels without experiencing the sensation of limping into my eighth period class at the end of the day.
However, here in college, I am constantly walking between various campuses for classes, running down the stairs when the elevators are broken, and running around the city for my internship and various errands. And sometimes, when I am about to be late to an appointment or a class, running in heels appears comical and dangerous.My dear beloved Valentino Polka Dot & Crystal Strawberry Ballerina Flats are finally wearing away; the Swarovski crystals are falling off and the straw is splintering. I still treasure these shoes like nothing else, from their slip-on glamour to their handcrafted bling-bling -- because as you know, I like shiny.
And on the most stressful of days, I can always look down at my feet and smile. It's good to be young. And 5'1".
