The “Model” Shoes

My cousin is a model based in Cagayan de Oro City and though I am not “one” of them, she encouraged me to buy this 5 inches high-heeled shoes:

I don’t usually wear high-heels because wearing them makes me look like a bamboo grass already. I am super thin and though I am not that tall, I look tall because of my body frame. But supermodels wore high-heels even though they stand tall. Maybe I am not just used to it but I know in time I will get used to walking tall wearing high-heeled shoes. I am used to wearing flat shoes and slippers and if you are an avid reader of this blog you probably know that I recently learned to walk using wedges and I liked it. That is why I am increasing my high-heeled shoe collections one shoe every month.

Pink Fridays: Pink Shoes

Pink thoughts for Pink Fridays : Pink Shoes!!!
When I saw this little shoes for babies I suddenly felt the urge to buy it though I know my baby will not be able to wear it after I gave birth to her. She can only wear this one when her feet will get bigger, as now it is so cute and little that even her baby socks fall off her feet.
It is not the typical pink I believe, the color is like an old rose. But still it is under the shade of pink, right? teehee.

Want Shoes?

Any so-called material thing that you want is merely a symbol: you want it not for itself, but because it will content your spirit for the moment.—Mark Twain

Many people are always caught up with the idea of finding pleasure on material and expensive things, which feeds their personal ego and desire. As quoted by Mark Twain, we may not want the material itself, but we wanted to gratify and reward ourselves with these material things in order to vanquish any undesirable emotions and thoughts that disturb us. Not only does it eradicate bad things, but it also boosts one’s self-esteem and confidence in order to feed ourselves with the things we desire most.

As for me, I never had developed any attachment to expensive things that this world has offered. Although, I must admit that I am a materialistic person, but I often do not choose expensive and luxurious materials because I find it impractical. I only buy discounted, brand less, cheap clothes, etc. Nevertheless, among all the things that I have bought and saw on the market, shoes attracted me the most. I find it pleasing and alluring to the eyes, and it feels as if it holds some mystical powers, which brings comfort and warmth to my soul. This is feeling is kind of similar to Mark Twain’s notion; I buy shoes to comfort and satisfy my soul for a moment, may it be in glory or in sadness.

Among all the shoes, I have collected; cheap club shoes have dominated my closet. I seldom go to clubs, bars, or parties, but I find club shoes alluring the most. Maybe it is because I find high heels sexy and seductive.
