I’m still processing your comments from yesterdays post. I can’t tell you how moved I was by your outpouring of support and many times was brought to tears while reading through them. Thank you! I’ll admit that gal rattled my cage with her nastiness, but what she really accomplished was reminding me how I’d been hurt by nasty comments as a girl.
I now wear confidence as a shield against critiques of my appearance and fervently hope I can help other women to do the same. I never doubted myself but I detested what she was trying to do. Yes, she was being a heel because most mean people are, but her intolerable behavior has no place in our lives. Let’s move on to a happier type of heel…the ones on our shoes… how’s that for a segue?
The newest direction for shoes, (I hate to call it a trend because it’s been popular since the 1950’s) is the kitten heel. They’re back and looking prettier than ever.
I found these shoes online last month and knew I needed them. They now come in leopard which I like almost as much! They’re a big departure from my usual style but something about them spoke to me. I haven’t worn kitten heels in close to 20 years but remember them as being a great alternative to the perennially popular and unwearable by me…stiletto.
The heel is very low so a simple pad in the front easily keeps my foot from sliding forward… which makes them comfy. I’m not running a marathon in these and you won’t find me wearing them to go shopping, but for a lunch with the ladies, dinner out or going to the show, etc these are great.
The kitten heel looks prettiest in a delicately shaped shoe so a pointed toe looks right to me. I have a long foot for my height so love that the low vamp helps to elongate the look of your leg.
Kitten heels are also showing up in little booties which look so retro and modern at the same time.
I don’t have many “dress shoes” because I lead a very casual life but I do like to go to the Ballet, dinner parties, lunches and dinners out so these are going be my new “fancy shoes” for several seasons ahead.
Are you a fan of kitten heels?
BTW- my top from Covered Perfectly is back in stock and selling out fast. Of all their tops, this is my very favorite.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
