Late last year, I was looking all over the internet for new shoes. I wanted ones with a high platform and kind of chunky look yet narrow shape. No luck. I found these recently at a thrift store and they're not quite what I was looking for then but I like them. They're actually kind of ugly and clunky. It adds charm, I guess. Quality-wise, there were scratches and the usual wear from faux leather but I fixed them up and they look somewhat better. Not too bad for $7.99.
I've been trying to play with small details and accessories in my style lately. Another reason I wanted new shoes was to have some low enough that my socks could show. My polyurethane pants are slightly cropped so I wanted something to wear with them too. They look shorter here and expose the socks more since I'm bending, but the look isn't quite as loud otherwise.
