Cut It Out...

Cut Out Sandals - Bought for 50% at Rubi, Aus

I really love heels, but unless I'm going out, I usually stick to flats. Put it down to my all-or-nothing attitude...the fact I spend hours a week dancing in 6 inch footwear.....or perhaps the fact that I don't drink and therefore feel the full brunt of pain a pair of heels can inflict...whatever the motivation, my footwear is either zero-elevation or 5 inches minimum.

So when I stumbled across these lovelies at Rubi (If you're unfamiliar, think Payless) I was cursing the fact that they weren't in platform-form. Diregarding them as a potential purchase I tried them on for fun, and after a few strolls past the mirror started to contemplate compromising my footwear ethos. One glance at the price tag had me sold - 50% off, marked down to $24.99. For that price I was willing to give them a try....

That was about a month ago and despite their synthetic-ness (usually not my scene) I can't stop wearing them. If you like the look of them, I've spied a similar - albeit more elevated - pair at gojane.com.

I'm thinking about getting another pair and studding them a la Rumi's awsome creations. As tight as this sounds I think I'll wait till they mark them down further. I popped in on Saturday and they had so many of them left, it seems I'm the only one who likes them - and I'm totally fine with that...

They're great! And I love your blog! I wore my new, highest pair of heels out on Saturday and my feet are still aching, and covered in blisters... So less than 5 inches is a good thing! (make a witty sex joke here) Haha :)

Oh wow... those are fantastic, and what a steal!!!

It's not unusual for me to sport a pair of 6-inch vaults, and the fact that you usually stick to flats but admit to dancing in such vertiginous footwear... just made you one of my sister shoe goddesses!
