|Yes. I know you do too.|

Anyway, at the blogiversary party I wore an ethereal black and white number (see above) with a pair of Calvin Klein flats in leopard and patent leather. They are divine and, though I try not to play favorites with my shoes, these are kind of my everything right now. In fact, I think I hear a choir of angels singing in the background…I felt so cute in those shoes and I danced and walked and was comfortable all night long. I didn’t feel any less cute just because I wasn’t wearing heels. OK, there was perhaps a tiny part of me that wished I were taller, but that faded quickly as I watched and overheard other women in super high heels sitting down, complaining of foot pain.

Like many women, I adore shoes! Yes, I’m a feminist who loves shoes. Get over it. Shoes are my vice and I never tire of shopping for them. At a size 11, it can sometimes be tough to find shoes that fit my long narrow feet without having to spend a fortune. So, when I’m in Nordstrom Rack or Marshalls or TJ Maxx, I always head for the shoe section. And I’ve found some terrific deals too.

Flats have become so chic in recent years that I actually feel appropriate wearing them to dressy events. These days anything goes, and I’m eternally grateful. I can see myself being known for my splendid flat shoe collection and getting a spread in Skorch Magazine, where I am naked in a tub full of blinged out, feathery, bright flats, sipping a glass of champagne of course.
