It's also freakishly easy to find metallic heels around the holidays.
But I procrastinated. I saw shoes I liked, and put it off. Then they were out of stock on my size. I saw other shoes that were great, but open toe, and I wanted a closed toe. Others were amazing but out of my price range. Too sparkly, not sparkly enough, too dark, too shiny. I want something that looks like I have mirrors on my feet, now I want something subtle that I can wear to work.
|My totally basic silver pumps|
Unfortunatly I also waited so long that they didn't get to me in time for Christmas.
So yesterday I walked in and my husband pointed to a box. "You got shoes."
"Yeah, they're my boring silver heels and I don't want them anymore because it's after Christmas and they're too dull."
|I should have bought these instead.|
I could tell by the look on his face he didn't know what the problem was (my husband, not the dog).
They're just not as exciting as I wanted my silver shoes to be, I explained. They're pumps. Basic, classic pumps.
Sure, basic can be good, but I don't do basic well. I don't have basic anything. Or maybe I do, but I don't wear it a lot. Or I make it all stupid and complicated and un-basic.
I'm also probably one of the only people on the planet who would consider a pair of metallic silver pumps to be a basic, let alone somewhat boring. But silver on a car is basic and boring, so why can't I also consider it to be dull on my shoes?
The one good thing about getting a basic piece is that it now means I get to find another pair of something silver to obsess over. This one obviously more ostentatious and less basic.
