Blue Monday - My Blue High Heels

I'm linking up with Smiling Sally's Blue Monday. It's my first time to share anything blue, and I'm anxious to see what everyone else has to offer. Here's mine...
 ___________________________


Despite calluses, corns and notable crashes, I’ve been a wearer of high heels since I was 13. Here's a pair that I wore over 30 years ago, and they still make me smile. I think I kept them because of their uniqueness. (Or maybe I kept them because a guy friend called them "the sexiest pair of shoes" he'd ever seen in his life.) At any rate, they're still mine, and although I haven't worn them since 1978, I don't envision parting with them anytime soon.

  2. My feet are in terrible shape today from wearing shoes like this. Never again will I wear them. They are pretty on someone else, but not for me.

  9. Those shoes are "hot"! Just channeling my inner Paris Hilton...they really are gorgeous and I can see why you would keep them even if they have caused a little pain.
