Day 28: These Shoes Were Made For Walking

Of all the shoes I have, believe it or not, these are one of the best pairs for actually walking in. I know that is the point of shoes, but shoes usually have two points. A left point and a right point. Or the walking point and the looking good point. How does Sarah Jessica manage to do both? Run around, literally, in towering and beautiful shoes. She is my hero.

It's Visible Monday. What it means to Patti, the hostess, is a place for people to post themselves wearing things that make them feel confident and visible. This dress is one of my favourites because it is a story. You can't really see them but there are 401 sequins sewn onto 401 of the dots on the dress—one for each kilometer I walked on the second leg of my Land's End to John O'Groats walk (ongoing). The dress has been well-worn but is hard to give up on, as are, I think, a lot of the clothes we take on important trips. They are holders of memory and happiness. The exception to this rule are the hiking boots. Yes they may be comfy, blister-less and sturdy, but they are so dead ugly that I even have trouble putting them in amongst the other flowers. They sit out on the balcony waiting for a time when walking again becomes more important than looking fabulous. Feet-wise at least.


The Outfit
Dress: Handmade by me, I mean seriously handmade, no sewing machines used
Cardigan: Op-shopped
Tights: Retail
Shoes: Irregular Choice 'Magic Pony', again one of my favourites, those are little pink rabbits on AstroTurf at the front, as you expect


Linking in today to: Not Dead Yet Style, still being [Molly], and, Plane Pretty for their celebrations of our online communities.
