My current predicament. I need to kiss my true love before tomorrow at sundown, quick!
At work, we have masses on Wednesdays and Fridays where I join the choir. On one of those days I looked to my left and right and realized I was shorter than everyone in my row. This happens all the time, of course, but I felt to small because everyone was wearing heels! I immediately worked out a shoe schedule for myself where mass days are heels days, while I can rest in between. My skintone Ferretti heels are my staple, but I've picked up a few pairs to rotate it with in the last few months.
Walking Tall the first: Aerosoles Plushed Velvet t-strap wedges. These are by far the most comfortable pair of wedges I've ever owned, and rightly so. The 3-inch wedge is helped by a 3/4" platform, spelling yay for petite ladies like me. It's actually a little big at size 5 1/2 but it certainly doesn't feel that way, and the strap helps. I love the neutral tri-color metallic design and the suede lining is heaven. They're the perfect thing to wear when I want to walk a lot (like when shopping!) and look tall at the same time.
The only downside to these shoes are the price, which I've already forgotten but believe me when I say it was hard to swallow at first. Totally worth it, though. The second downside is that I feel uncomfortable wearing them without painting my toenails due to psoriasis, and this goes for all my open-toed shoes. I love them, but le sigh. Life's like that.
Walking tall the second: Morgan chunky colorblock heels from Comfit, which were originally Php1499 but I managed to score them on sale. I only just noticed that this is also a t-strap. :) I've never owned a purple shoe and the purple-light teal combo sealed the deal for me.
At four inches these are my tallest shoes and they're not padded like the Aerosoles wedges, so it took a few days before I got used to tottering around in them. The chunky heel is lightweight and provided much-needed stability. When I wear these to work I try to bring a pair of flats along so that I can rest when I'm just at my desk, and after awhile I placed gel pads on the insoles to cushion the feet. So far, so good.
Walking tall the third (and last) is--surprise, surprise--another Ferretti! I swear, if you have small feet, look for Ferretti wherever you may live. I always stop by their Landmark Trinoma branch when I'm there since I know they have my size and I can look at styles without worrying if they'll fit or not.
These wedge pumps in taupe are perfect for looking polished at work, and the pompom flower accent is adorable. They are also fairly priced at Php1399. I suffered a few scars and/or blisters from breaking them in, but now they're comfortable and I'm happy.
Now, your turn! What are your favorite shoes to wear for work or school? :)
