Last Let's Talk Fall post since fall is right around the corner!
I may be the only person in the world this happens to but around this early fall time, my feet can't decide if they are chilly or hot. I can't stand it when my feet are hot & really concentrate on them if they are. I get so distracted. Clogs are the perfect solution to this because I can slip my feet in & out of them at the moments when my feet decide to freak out.
I am not sure if clogs are really 'in' right now but I sure do love them for fall weather. I got a great platform pair from Arizona (above) at the thrift store the other day. Platforms are not my first choice of shoes as I am already about 300 feet tall, but I thought they were interesting, in my size, & around $4. How do you pass that up? I ventured to wear them to work today & I have to say that I can't believe I never did this before! These have to be the best fall purchase I've made in a while. I can't wait to see what these puppies look like with tights.
My first encounter with clogs: My mother grew up in the 70's & looking through her old photos I wish I were as tiny as she is because she had some style. She had perfectly coiffed hair & a wonderful 70's vibe. She also had a great pair of blue (suede-ish maybe) clogs. She saved these all through high school, college, marriage & kids and one day she let me wear them. They were a size 7 or so. Guess what size shoe I wear? 9 - 10. Guess what great I was in when I wore these shoes? 5th. Guess how sad I am that I have King Kong feet? a lot. Anyway, I wore those clogs like they were going out of style. They were sort of stiff, so I got a huge blister...but I loved them. I wish I could still squeeze my King Kong feet in them. But my new little pair rocks.Here's some fall clog inspiration:
