I remember when flats became the new "in" type of footwear, I was surprised. I didn't understand how girls wore shoes without socks. My feet got swollen, sweaty, red, and sometimes even smelly. Its the truth that girls sometimes do anything to look fashionable. I think I just missed the days of looking cute in tennis shoes (not that cute sometimes). Plus, flats often did not give my feet a lot of support. They are very flimsy and thin and do not absorb shock. I went out and purchased socks for my flats (which were really expensive when they first came out, and some foot gels like doctor scholls). Overtime I just gave up the whole idea of wearing flats and switched the boots. Boots allow me to look cute and feel comfortable. I just love my socks too much.
My feet have always made me feel insecure. I'm a size 8.5 and I'm only 5"2.5 without shoes on. I think I was meant to grow taller but I didn't drink my milk in my teens. So I'm just stuck as a petite girl. Anyhoos, I come to the conclusion that I don't think I'll wear flats for a long long time. I'll just stick to sandals and boots and flip flops!
I found these earrings at Forever 21, they look exactly like a dupe for the RissyJewels bow earrings that I own. These are only $3.80, but they do not have sterling silver posts. I wanted to tweet them, but the link is too long.
