I'm wearing them!
I bought these shoes with Caroline (a.k.a. Carlo Suck) in...ohhh...summer of 2007(?) at the Max Mara outlet in Aurora, IL. They were my first pair of shoes to come in their own little "sleeping bag" and I LOVE them. But I haven't worn them until today. HA. (That makes me sound like some brat who has a closet full of shoes she never wears...I don't.)
It's just that on a daily basis I have to plan my footwear around how many city blocks I might walk and how long I might have to stand up on the subway and/or bus. So 4 inch heels have a way of falling to the back of the closet, you know?
But I've spent the last year living in NYC watching women wear insane shoes in all kinds of weather and on all sorts of public transportation so today I decided to give it a shot too.
P.S. I totally have a pair of flip flops in my bag. just in case.
P.P.S. Yes, I'm totally wearing weird, light colored, carrot jeans I bought at H&M for $10. I'm pretty sure these were the "Mom Jeans" of the 80's, but I'm obsessed with them so I don't care.
P.P.P.S. Maybe the best thing about NYC (for me) is that it is a fashion free-for-all 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. (Viva la carrot jeans!)
