If The Shoe Fits

April 27, 2015

Like most little girls, my five-year-old daughter Iole loves to wear my heels. I’m quite amazed by the confidence with which she totters about in them. This morning she handed me a vertiginously high and shimmery Louboutin and asked me to try it on. I felt like one of Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters as I tried to pour my plump little feet into this size-less-than-perfect pump. They did once fit, but they don’t anymore, and weirdly, I’m not too disappointed. My feet are my locomotive, and they’ve walked the world. They’ve also carried the loving weight of three beautiful babies.  I won’t get rid of all the patent pumps and sparkly stilettos as they’re mementos of dancing days gone bye. But today, its trainers and ballerinas, (or anything I can chase a 4-year-old boy on a scooter in) that I wear. Flats suit my lifestyle –– plus I’m happier with my feet closer to the ground.
