give a girl the right shoes

i used to love beautiful shoes and i used to wear them, too, when i was much much younger and my legs still slim. when i arrived in canada almost 30 years ago, i hauled with me, aside from 50 books i couldn't part with, 25 pairs of shoes - stilettos, heeled sandals, power shoes. i had keds sneakers before it became popular. i had pink pumps, open toed pumps, and they weren't cheap shoes.

over the years from size 5 i grew to size 8 you wonder what happened to me. i used to walk all the time in 3-inch high heels; why, i'd be chasing buses and even walk in flooded streets in high heels. i wore heels all the time, seven days a week. and you couldn't catch me wearing running shoes except when i was in the gym. now, i wear runners all the time.

and yes, imelda marcos and i share the same birthday!


over at five plus two, this week's theme is "secrets". you know something? then selfie yourself and tag it fiveplustwo-secrets
I think the lady who fits in these shoes will be too small to even notice the world! Nice composition!

Beautiful composition. Love your narrative. I understand about the shoes. I wore high heels all the time. I guess with age we become more practical.
