My Special Heels

Do you remember your first heels?
     I do! I remember I was about 14 years old and was sent to the local shop with my dad to choose shoes I like. I don't now why my mum tough it's a good idea and I'm not saying it wasn't. Just interesting, I might ask her.
We had only one shop in our village, but it was selling everything you could possibly imagine. Something like a little supermarket. When I remember all the things you could buy in this early 90's village shop it feels quite special. Even some choice of lady shoes! I picked grey heel pumps. Well, heel was only about 2-3 cm and they were at least one size too big for me, but they were my first heels and my dad paid for them.

Do you have favorite heels?!
     I think every women has at least one pair! Mine are black sandal heels with ankle strap. The heel was about 8 cm but they were so comfortable. I could dance all night and my feet wouldn't feel wrecked. Great memories! I still have them stored  in my parents house.

I found some images of my special shoes. It's very close to what I had. :)
Shoes I prefer now!
     I like heels, but now I wear them only for special occasions. For everyday look I prefer wedges or flat sandals. Maybe to compensate the lack of heels in my life I have found another way to enjoy them - making shoe brooches. I think it is very good alternative and it seems that others are enjoying them too. I don't know all the reasons but recently one of my shoe brooches was bought as a present for lady who owns the shoe shop. Indeed: women can never have too many shoes!

One of the first shoe brooches made by Valg Studio in 2012.

  1. Love the shoe pins! Your story makes me think about my favorite shoes. I left them at my parent's place as well, but when I went back to collect them I discovered the dog had chewed them, a lot. What a shame...I still haven't found a good substitute!

  2. Love the little shoe pins. My favourite looking shoes are a black pair of patent 10cms with hidden platforms but I can only wear them for short bursts, for example if Im out to dinner and sitting down most of the night....my favourite to wear are my comfy hiking boots that take me to fabulous places!

    1. Hi Dori, looking at my first choice today I can't imagine any teenager wearing this type of shoes, but they were special to me. I wouldn't mind some shoe shopping too!

  5. Lovely lovely blog ! Oh i do love heels but can only manage them from car to restaurant ! even then they are kicked off under the table! But when I was young .... oh yes in my youth they were a big part of my life. I was more into platforms as a teenager ('70's) but now i would wear HIGH heels if I could ! Love your pins !
