It's no secret ( heck, it's even in the title of this blog ), I love high heels! A few years back, when I started earning a bit of money after my Ph.D., the dams of self-restraint were broken! :-P
Going into shoe shops, ordering online ( I'm looking at you, Zalando! ), I've bought so many shoes... even shoes that did not really fit well and I've kept them just because they looked so pretty, gorgeous and sexy.
And yes, some will say.. heels are not supposed to be comfortable, but I disagree. Sure, sneakers and flip-flops are always easier to walk in than heels, but I know I have pumps/sandals/boots with a 4 or 5 inch heel that allow me to walk in them for a full day. So, it is possible!
Thus, when I ordered these three pairs of strappy heels, I was determined to only be satisfied if the heels were a 100% comfortable from the moment I put my feet in them. ;-)
To my sadness, the white-black and the all-black heels did not fit completely right, they were just a tad too big. A smaller size would probably be too tight. So, I did the unthinkable.. I sent those two pairs back!
What do you think? Should I have kept them? Or do you agree that it's better to send back shoes that don't fit a 100%?
It was also a day that I decided not to be lazy and I painted my toes. Probably could have done a much better job, but I'm not a pro! :-P
The last video was of me at the campus of the Rotterdam Erasmus University. There is some extra material where it looks like I'm being stalked as I come out of the library. :-P
