Doing The Flat, Yea Or Nay?

That would be a flat NAY. I don’t do flats.  Even my boots walk a height of no less than 2.5″, at the bare minimum.  So, let’s not even get me started on my heels.  As I once told someone, the height of my heels appears to escalate in tandem with my age.  On that note though, I do hope it peaks at 40 because 5.75″ is about the max for me.  Anything more and I may as well go with stilts. Here are some glorious flats I found while scouring the web. Blue Monarch Butterfly Flats from here.

I envy those nubile young things who look perfect from every which angle and whom can make even a potato sack look like haute couture. I am fiercely jealous of how skinny they are and how the world adores them, particularly the fashion houses. I want to be noticed too. I want to be famous. I. Want. To. Be. Just. Like. Them. But I can’t. I’m no young thing. I’m not skinny. I’m not photogenic and I most certainly don’t have a figure to rival that of a clothes rail. I’m 40. I’m …

Angst

Valentine’s Day.  Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s overflowing with angst. Or it could be laced with equal doses of fun and sage-esque qualities. However your day turns out, live it to the fullest.  I’ll write a more personal V-Day post later this week.  Or something. Love, SG

I Am Weak

Forgive me, shoe gods, I have (once again) sinned. Le Objet du Désir. DANNIJO Zeppelin Boots.  Black.  Neon.  Glitter.  Cut-outs.  Combat Style.  Can you really blame me?   Love, SG Footnote:  I purchased these here, they were on sale from $325 and I ended up paying under $100.  Good times.
