I'm short, but not stupid.

So, no new jewelry made in the last couple of days. We had a HUGE snow storm; of course the weathermen didn't predict it. Since last week my job actually closed due to the weather (the 2nd time in 9 years from what people have told me) of course they wouldn't close this past storm. So I had to stay at work during the blizzard. My boss is actually a sweetie though and drove me home (I am a little baby driving in the snow). Living in Connecticut all my life you'd think I'd be used to it by now; NOPE!

Well, during the day, my great boss sent me this link showing me a pair of Alexander Mcqueen's(RIP) shoes. OH. MI. GOD. Do you see these things!
THEY'RE INSANE! This is coming from a woman who is 5"2 and wears very tall heels whenever she goes out. I love heels. They're one of my addictions; I at least have 50 pairs(as stated before, shopaholics anonymous here I come!). But I would NEVER in a million years be able to stand up straight wearing these shoes. I would fall, break my ankle and knowing my luck, have to wear flip flops for the rest of my life.

Granted, what goes down on the runway is completely different from what I put on my body in day to day life; but c'mon. I want to see at least 1 person wear these shoes and not fall down a flight of stairs. If they do, they deserve a freakin trophy!


  1. No, just no. I'm *maybe* 5"1 1/2' if I stand really straight ... and I never wear heels of any kind if I can help it. I can barely stand to even look at this picture. It crazy! Mad props to the woman who made it down the runway in these things.

  2. I could NEVER walk in those - they are crazy!

    I like the new look you've got for the blog. :-)
