History of Shoes

Floral print dress H&M, love this one - Vintage leather burgundy belt with resin buckle, similar

Brown H hand bag in transit, another option - Fruit sandals Cheap and Chic Moschino

The other day I read up this article about the history of shoes. Of the many facts that surprised me, is that up until the 1850s the left and right shoes were identical and that options were only slim or wide.

I cannot imagine wearing these vintage heels with tiny fruits on them in 1850s mode because if they are not that comfortable I can only imagine...

Do you wear uncomfortable shoes for the sake of looking good?

Love this gorgeous floral print dress on you, and the way you styled it with great vintage accessories! I have been wearing uncomfortable shoes less over the past few years, slowly letting go of my higher heels. I'm not completely cured, however, and sometimes bring a comfortable pair with me to change into if my feet rebel!

First off, that dress is really stunning. Secondly, that article looks super interesting and my lunch break just started so I'm going to sit here and read it. Thirdly, I never wear uncomfortable shoes...which for me means almost never heels.

I am loving that dress! I'm seeing so many similar style prints around and it always makes me do a double take as I think I've seen it before, but in fact it's a different dress / brand / store each time, haha! It's beautiful and so eye-catching.

I like your shoes too but I can't stand uncomfortable shoes. I had to borrow a colleagues 'emergency flats' from under her desk once to evacuate from level 28 of a building as all I had were heels......I'm much more sensible with my shoe choices now, even if I am on a lower level of the office!

Hope that your week is off to a good start :)

Hahaha yes that is crazy to think that we've come so far and yet still struggle to make cute shoes that are comfortable to wear! I've been trying to stop buying shoes that are car to restaurant only - I won't wear them enough to justify the price and enjoy them!
