Once again, it's been a while. I really have to work on some form of consistency with this blog. However, in my defense, it's been a busy week and I haven't had many alone moments at the house in which to photograph shoes in my collection and when I do, it's late at night and I can't count on the help of natural light to help in my photography sessions. I see no point in posting lackluster photos that don't do the shoes any justice, just for the sake of making sure there is something new to post. Quantity is the goal but quality is a must.
I'm not sure if I'm really sick enough to have taken the day off from work, but I did, and now I can use some of my time alone to catch up on a few things. First is the breaking in of my Pleaser slingbacks. Wow. Two inches of heel height makes one hell of a difference! It took me no time at all to get used to 3" heels but the 5" heels of these shoes make my feet wobble, not to mention hurt quite a bit as the weight of my body is forced into the balls of my feet, which in turn squeezes my toes into the pointy toe box. It probably doesn't help that the heels are very narrow to the point where they could probably be defined as stilettos. On the plus side, my calves are being stretched so much that I shouldn't wake up in the middle of the night with cramps for at least a few days, and being 6'3" tall in 5" heels gives me a feeling of power.
