I’d like to bend your ear on the subject of errrr feet…

platform loafers

Leopard coat: Topshop. Similars from Nordstrom (on sale).  Jeans:  Sandro.  Loafers: Mango. Similar by Greyson or Flamingo.  Shirt: Borrowed from Michael.  Bag: Chanel

These loafers are two years old and walk that line of boy/girl (with short hair I’m siding with the former).  They satisfy my  platform fix without succumbing to the Stella McCartney loafers that I wanted off and on for months.  Plus I reckon these’ll stick around in the closet for longer even when the Stella’s go down during the Black Friday sales.

Having size ten (US) feet I thought I’d shy away from wanting mannish shoes but that never happens. In fact I make it a feature.  I did find it annoying for maybe five minutes years ago but got over it. There are too many cool shoes around now to sit around wishing my feet were a cute size six.  Of course there are shoes I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole because they just look better on small feet (like the Stella’s I mentioned? correct me if I’m wrong since I’ve never tried them on) but I’ve seen small feet woman rock them like no one’s business.  That shouldn’t make me stop wanting them but it does.  Being lame? or being realistic?

Interestingly, women with small feet tell me that it’s hard to find shoes in their size or that their size goes first.  So much for the grass is greener theory.

Can you relate to being horizontally challenged below the ankles?
