Time to talk about a trend! If you know me, you know I absolutely LOVE shoes. More than likely this won’t even be close to the last time that will be mentioned here. My best friend even got me the perfect card for my birthday last month. On the cover was a woman shoe shopping and surrounded by all of the shoe boxes with the inside reading: “it’s your birthday – surround yourself with the ones you love”. I’m telling you, the woman KNOWS me.
Even with all that shoe love going on there are definitely some trendy styles of shoes that I just do NOT get. That’s what this weeks trend is about. Booties. I just do not understand this shoe.
I can’t say that they’re inherently ugly. I have seen some with great colors and cute embellishments but I’m short and these do absolutely nothing for my body. I don’t wear pants, only skirts, and these completely cut me off and make me look like I have stumps for legs. I already have short legs, I do not need my shoes to shorten them even more. I’m sure there are some long-legged ladies, and some super skinny chicks, that can pull this look off but for the most part, I just do not see the appeal.
Do you wear the booties? Can you convince me that they’re fabulous and I’m just not seeing it?
