It’s not a major radical but it is for me. Earlier I decided that as my “ballet” shoes that I wear for work most days are falling apart I decided that I was going to buy some grown-up new shoes.
I went to Brantano over at Interchange where I bought my last few pairs of work shoes or school shoes when I’ve needed smart shoes. There were lots of pretty shoes. There was a very nice pair that were navy with pink polka dots on them. As pretty as they were, that would really be a radical choice for me I think!
My Mum thought it was different but she knew it was because I wanted to look more grown up and smart for work – after all even though trainers and ballet shoes are comfy they aren’t exactly smart!
I got home and Chris was too busy taking the mickey out of me because my choice was out of character.
I’m two minds whether to take the shoes back and exchange them or to just wear them anyway. I would probably end up going with the first option although part of me wants to prove a point.
Maybe I should resort to black trainers or something like that. My bootleg/flare trousers are that wide that my shoes are often hidden anyway.
