"Shoes like these should not be locked in a closet ! They should be living a life of scandal, and passion and getting screwed in an alleyway by a billionaire while his frigid wife waits in the limo thinking that he just went back into the bar to get his cellphone. These are cute too." ( In her Shoes, 2005 )
My feet hurt so much. Yesterday, I went shopping to find new boots for winter, as every woman of the northern hemisphere might be doing right now. And there was this pair, with platform heels : so IT. It took me five seconds inside of it to realize my error. Those boots were not boots, they were mediaeval torture instrument, and literally broke my feet. While massaging my aching extremities, I had a very philosophical thinking about women and shoes.

If I trust the quote of In her Shoes, it would make me someone uptight, an anti-enchantress. But I don't need John Galliano's crazy pink platform shoes to let it all hang out. I can be pretty crazy, without alcohol, without cigs, without heels. Every woman her style. Mine is classy clothes, ballerina-style shoes and a twisted imagination and humor. And about being sexy ... the men I've met who looked at my shoes were not potential lovers, if you see what I mean. I am not going to lose my stilletos to find the Prince Charming, nor ZU shoes to put them all at my feet. I just need to be ... myself. And I am free to change my mind if I want, that's the privilege of a woman ... These Nicholas Kirkwood are cute, aren't they ...?
