Birthday Treat for me!


It's my birthday today and while things remained pretty uneventful, I decided to treat myself to some new shoes. Well, I actually really needed them for a civil wedding I'm going to attend this Friday. I'm going to wear these with white linen summery slacks and a nice blouse I bought from H&M a while ago and have hardly worn.

The elaborate Church wedding ceremony isn't until July and I still need to buy something to wear for that. I am dreading it, quite frankly. I went to a bridal shop a few days ago to look at dresses - my god that shit was RAW I tell you! Just awful. I'll have to try regular clothing stores to find a nice dress I think. I hate shopping when you actually need to find something specific, blech!

These shoes are black suede on the outside, and lavender colored leather on the inside. It's amazing for me to find fashionable shoes in my size, and in leather too. You try going into a trendy shoe store and ask for a size 11 or 12! (Size 41-42 Europe) Damn it shoe store, carry my size!!!! That's the downside of being tall (I'm 177cm) - having large feet and finding fashionable shoes that fit.


Please ignore the orange nailpolish, which is China Glaze Orange Marmalade by the way. I'm honestly not feeling it...

  28. Happy birthday, I wish you all the best, and may all your wishes come true! And in my opinion, having a bigger foot is the issue I would definitely bare with if I could just have your height :)))). So enjoy your new shoes and your awesome height, which is, in my opinion, perfect (not extremely tall, but not short either)!

  37. Happy birthday!!

    You are TALL! I thought I was tall at 5'10" (154cm). I have the same problem with shoes though. I have to stalk shoe stores and get there on their stocking day so all the size 10-11-12s don't disappear.

    Happy belated birthday! I'm 1.68m and people say I'm tall! You put my "tall-ness" to shame! lol

  50. Happy Bday! Cute shoes! I'm actually at the other side of the spectrum. I'm 4'10 with a size 6w shoe. It's extremely hard to find shoes that don't look like they belong to a bady doll, or belong to someone who feet are narrow as toothpicks. And God forbid those itty bitty granny smanny nurse looking shoes!!!
