"If you're thinking about being my baby it don't matter if you're black or white..." Michael Jackson - Black Or White
So it got me thinking, what do my shoes say about me? My shoe collection is extensive, and quite literally enough to last me a lifetime (it won't, im only in my teens), way over 50 pairs (now I know where all my money goes) Im a self confessed, completely unashamed shoe addict and I always will be. Rather than shoecase (sorry, couldn't resist) my whole shoe collection - I thought I would just give a tiny snapshot that sums up who I am.
I used to be obsessed with converses, like obsessed. I thought I was Avril Lavigne (before the blonde hair and skirts, purlease Avril, we all remember) and my huge converse collection of all patterns and colours still remains. I'm an incredible girly girl but there are some days when I just cannot be bothered. Where I just want to blend in rather than stand out. When I want to be comfortable more than I want to be stylish (those days are admittedly rare, I have the blisters to prove it) and no matter how hard I try, I just can't break up with Chuck Taylor. I will love him forever.
I love my ballet flats until it gets far too cold to wear them. Those black and white ones are my absolute favourite and remind me of Chanel Cambon shoes, except mine were a lot cheaper (£20/$40 if I remember correctly)
I love bags, but you don't need one. Everyone has to wear a pair of shoes (please do not get me started on Crocs - I refuse to acknowledge them) and thats what makes me love them more. Its also what makes them so interesting, everyone has to wear them, but everyone is different. Next time you see someone, take a look at their shoes. It will not only make them feel super uncomfortable and self conscious, but will give you an insight into their mind and how they think and feel.
Stay safe and chic,
