Writer’s Block: Fall Footwear
For most of my life, I’ve been a “no shoe” person. I would come home kicking them off, preferring to be, as my father would call me “Honey Child, Runnin’ Wild, In the Jungle, With-no-shoes-on-yo-feet!” As a result, I ended up with large, flat, rabbit feet – practically no arches graced them at all.
Then at some magical point, I began to fall in love with shoes.
I think it was the point when I realized that I could wear any shoes I liked.
Forget the black-patent-leather requirement that my mother had – I could wear sandals and wedges and strappies and pumps and flats…oh, it was refreshing.
Then I found DSW.
That was a good day.
So, for fall, what “type” of person am I? While I do have an immense love of shoes, I try not to own too many at once. I will wear shoes until they wear out, get them repaired, and then wear them out again before buying new ones. This fall, when I buy new shoes, they’ll probably be cheapie, colorful, flats.
