Yep, I need shoes - it isn't just that I want them, because I always want shoes: I need them. You see, there's this Christmas party coming up... and I have these awesome shoes with high heels that I love sooo much.
Sadly, I don't get to wear high heeled shoes anymore because I walk with a cane. I've been trying to convince Ian (and myself) that I should be able to walk around wearing my gorgeous high heels at the Christmas party. Deep inside, I know better. I can't wear shoes with a beautiful high heel.
And the problem: I have no beautiful, flat, dressy shoes. So you see, I need shoes. The trouble with most appropriate shoes is that they're of the "old-lady" variety: frumpy, with thick straps and stumpy heels. Those won't do at all.
I remember seeing some sequinned ballet flats at one point. I can't find the shoes online now but I know I saw them. And yes, I know, they sound either atrocious or gorgeous, depending on who you are. The ones I've seen aren't all that ugly; the sequins aren't the shiny cup variety, they're the small, donut-shaped matte type. The sequins add texture to the shoe as well as a bit of shine but they aren't over-the-top. At least the ones I've been thinking about. I've been looking online and there are some different varieties on this theme out there at different price points.
I'll spend some time looking around stores and stuff and see if I can find what I want. If I had time and the tiny sequins - or the right sequinned fabric - I could make my own sequinned pair. That would be going way, way too far, I think :) So I'll see what I can find; I hope I'm successful because I don't know what I'll do if I can't find the shoes I need.
