Choices choice choices

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

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

  3. Even though they were really cute, if they didn't fit, they'd probably end up hurting your feet. Probably best to send 'em back. :)

  5. They are very pretty shoes, but you definitely made the right decision...it's always a good idea to send them back when they don't fit! I'm also loving those black strappy ones! Gorgeous!

  15. It was the right decision to send those heels that were not completely comfortable back! Besides, you still have one pair that you're satisfied with so that's good...and you have more space in your closet for heels that will be comfortable.

    I do think it is possible to find heels that suit us and that we can walk all days in...Personally, flats hurt my bag and I can't even wear them. I can wear sneakers, but not flat shoes. I think we are all creatures of habits...if we wear heels often, our legs and ankles become used to them and we feel good wearing them. That being said, it is probably not a good idea walk in stilettos for hours without end....and I do have to admit I have a few pair of heels that are not comfortable at all! but I have even more pairs of heels that are a joy to walk in.

  16. flats hurt by back*

    1. Both tea and coffee?! That would also not be good for my brain! :-P

    2. and also when I'm typing on my cell, I make even more typos....this one was quite funny ---braid instead of a brain:)

      yes, I've started some alternative medicine treatment so I had to go cold turkey on both tea and coffee....it is so hard!!! I love both so much and it would be so much easier if I could have at least one...but fortunately, I will only do it for another month.

  29. I love heels as well, the higher the better but nowadays I do pay attention to comfort as well. Imagine going to a fun latin party and not being able to dance because you feet hurt in your beautiful heels I've been there :( If you didn't feel comfortable in them, sending them back was the best!
    Have an amazing week beautiful!

  30. I think you did the right thing,... I can't bear wearing shoes that don't fit 100% right, my feet don't take it.

  35. Hello Natassia! Heels definitively look amazing on you and like you, I am also in love with them. All the heels you shared are gorgeous and I think you did the right thing sending the ones that you didn't find comfortable although I will admit that I own a few that are not comfortable at all but that I am definitively obsessed with and I chose to keep. Have an amazing week beautiful girl and I look forward to your next post! Take care! XOXO, Jeannette

  42. I definitely think you should send back shoes which do not fit! You can always find a better pair later on. That being said, I do adore your collection :)

  43. Too bad they didn't all fit perfectly. But you're right, it's better to send them back and move on the the (hopefully) perfect next pair. Even if you're loving them. It's a shame to just leave them dying in your closet ^^
