This post was initially titled ‘A few inches and I feel on top of the world’! Because that was literally how I felt the first time I wore this shoe out. Now if you’ve read my last post on shoes, you will already know about my love for shoes and my dislike of heels! Although I think it is more of fear and discomfort which translated to dislike, but give me comfortable heels and I can strut Naomi Campbell style. Which leads me back to the first day I wore these babies, I felt tall and confident and it was like I was looking at the world from a vantage point, who knew life could feel and look different with just a few inches adjustment! Thinking of revisiting my heel dilemma now!

I am camera shy. At least I think I am. This really baffles me, I’m the girl that makes videos and puts it up on YouTube which in a way is this decade’s equivalence of being naked in public. Posting online has become an art-form where people share their vulnerabilities and aspirations, for the whole world to do what they see fit with it—scrutinize, empathize or adore.
But I think my camera shyness might be of a particular kind, I cannot pose for pictures alone in public! A group picture and I channel my inner Karlie Kloss, but when I’m going solo, I suddenly feel as if everyone is staring holes at me. It’s worse when my photographer, takes forever to do the task of clicking. I suddenly feel naked and uncomfortable—hello emperor’s new clothes!Continue Reading
I think the fashion crowd in town for the London Fashion Week will agree with me when I say yesterday was not the weather for fashion. Well I wish I had foresighted that or even bothered to check the weather forecast —side note, do people do that? I always love a good excuse to dress up, especially when it involves going into the city. I always feel like Carrie Circa 1980 on her way to NYC for her internship at Interview Magazine. Just like Carrie, I plan my outfit days beforehand and I always have a mental picture of what I’ll be wearing, in some cases an extra or two options.
But I imagine unlike Carrie, I rarely factor in the weather. This was the case here. I wore my TOD’s Suede Flat which complemented my chic outfit perfectly, only to go out and see that it’s raining. Being the optimist I often am, factor in my silly wish that just because it’s raining here, doesn’t mean it’s raining in London. WRONG! Any Londoner will tell you to never trust the weather and to always be prepared. The roads were slippery and I almost fell down more times than I can recall and my shoe needed some TLC by the end of the day.
Come closer, I’ll let you in on a secret….I L o v e shoes!
I love them so much but there’s another thing, I’m not very keen on wearing heels. Now you know every ‘shoe lover’ will gasp after reading that but I am astounded as well. I tried to understand how this is possible but when it comes to me It’s hard to explain how I’m wired!
