I get my paycheck tomorrow, and my sour mood is lingering so I may try some retail therapy. I know that's a crappy answer to problems, but I'll ignore that... Anyway, Urban Og offers free shipping on orders over $50, and there's a few pairs of sandals I may want in addition to these. I've loved these ever since I saw them months ago on Gojane, and I finally encountered them again.

The thing is, they're basically legitimate stripper heels except they're a little less tacky. I admire those who can wear such high heels without looking the least bit trashy (Taghrid is my favorite example). They're 5" inches, and the platform is a whopping 1.75", which means the difference is only about 3.25" which really isn't much. And I think I could try to wear them with socks, a la Alexa Chung:

to break them in and tone them down.

I can't decide if it's worth it or not. I think I dress a little more maturely than some sixteen year olds, but at the same time I'm thinking "I'm sixteen, I never do anything that cool, why bother?"

This is what bad moods do to me...

Edit: oh, and there's these:

Still a little undecided on color, if I want them at all. They're less intense looking, but the heel is 5" and the platform is 1.25" so I'm imagining they'd hurt more.

OH, AND QUESTION - does anyone have miraculous things for wearing heels from Dr. Scholl's or such? I'd be grateful to hear any suggestions.

  1. Awesome shoes!!!
    They are defiantly on the top of my wish list <3<3

  2. Ahhhhhh those shoes are fantastic! You have to buy them xoxoxoox

  3. Those shoes are pretty cool. I like the first pair. But if you'll never get a chance to wear them, I don't know if you should buy them.

  4. I think you should go for them. There might not be any grips at the bottoms of the heels though.

  5. I think they're worth it :) who cares what others think, when you're 16, you need to dress how you feel or to be the person you are :)

  6. Love these! I think I prefer these heels over the ones in your next post!

  7. hey the shoes are nice, a little bold i'll admit
    i read that you feel like you don't dress for 16 but i see from this that you would like to
    i went trough a similar thing, i was alawys wearing sport outfits,they were confortable and i didn't trust in myself enough to wear somthing else
    and every time i tryed to wear something else, i felt weird
    you know what i did? i took it one step at the time
    i took one piece i never worn before and started wearing it and wearing it despide the weird feeling, and after a while the weird feeling went away :)
    anyway, in case i've bored you with my story, sorry for that
    and sorry for the mistakes (i'm not from USA)
    one other thing...could anyone tell me if is legit?
