Summers can be really, really, really hot in China and you’d hardly find any ladies wearing trainers or sneakers during the summer. I am one of the only weirdos who do and that’s because I can’t find any shoe that fit my fat feet!!!
I’d asked a friend to bring over some shoes from the US, which I’d ordered online. They were super comfy but because I couldn’t try them on before I bought them, I’ve found that the back of the shoes are too high. Result?
The blisters are so bad that the only pair of shoes I can bear to wear are socks and sneakers. Even my kids pause in their play when they hear me go, “Oww…” as I try pair after pair of shoes. My dear little boy will go running to his Dad for plasters!
I thought I had some luck when I came to this little shoe shop and saw this wonderfully soft white leather peep-toe pump:
I love it because my big, fat toes actually looked cute in it! Just my luck, they were out of size 38, 39 and no, they don’t carry 40. Drat!!! I think I should learn to cuss in Chinese because they stare at me when I say, “Shit.” or “Damn it.”
I love peep-toe pumps because they are ultra feminine and your feet stays cool during the summer. Furthermore, these pumps are not too casual to be worn to the office…
Gladiator sandals, on the other hand, are thankfully, on their way out of season. Thank God! I have been seeing one too many short, fat and frumpy lady (like me!) slopping around in them.
Fie! Fie! Fie! Don’t these people know that ONLY ladies who have:
a) small, pretty feet,
b) trim ankles and
c) long legs (like the lady below) should wear gladiator sandals?
Trendy as they are, you really, really cannot attempt to trot around in them or you’ll look like
a) a disciple of Jesus or
b) a Roman soldier
No, these are NOT compliments!
Honey, unless you look like Gwyneth Paltrow, stay away from gladiator sandals:
Her hair’s a bit off though, but who cares? She always looks so slim I wonder if it’s in her genes or if she works out a lot?
Gwyneth – are you reading my blog? If you do, will you please tell me your secret? Thank you in advance.
