The hobbit’s feet

I am generally a happy person. But if you want to make me unhappy, it is very easy. Just bring me shoe shopping. I get depressed each time I shop for shoes. It comes to a point where Darling is afraid to let me shop for shoes. But I have to shop for shoes. I can’t go around bare-footed like the Flinstones!

Strange huh? Majority of ladies out there just loves shopping for shoes. And they just can’t seem to have enough of them. You want to know why I loathe shopping for shoes? Because my shoe size is 2.5 – 3. You tell me, how many brands out there sell size 3? Majority of them only start at size 4 onwards! So when I go shopping, all I can do is see and envy, as I know they won’t have it my size anyway. People told me that once I am pregnant, my shoe size will increase at least a size. THAT did not happen to me…

But all is not lost. I still have one brand I can rely on. I think it’s a local brand. Starts with a V and ends with an I. It has two C’s in the middle. That label comes with plentiful of size 3’s. It’s cheap but not too comfortable. And it’s definitely not too lasting too. But what the heck, it’s better than going around shoe-less!

See my heels? It’s 9cm tall. You do the math if you want to know that in inches because I don’t know. Only got to officially wear it once. {And several other times when I’m notti :P} Can audition for Cinderella? Feet maybe but my height (or rather lack of it) forbids.

Mine vs Ethan’s

Overall, I don’t wear heels too often. I’m more of a boots person. Bump into me anywhere and chances are, you’ll see me in boots…

    I can't believe your shoe size is a 3! Wow. I wear size 5 and sometimes a 4 depending on the cutting of the shoe. For UK sizes, it would be a 3 but sometimes could be too big for me depending on the cutting of the shoe.

  • //

    Wah, Merryn, your shoe size is 3????

  • //

    Is it? Your shoe size did not increased after delivery? For me, I did leh. And I have a totally opp situation as yours, I have a huge foot. So I wear size 7 to 8 and I faced difficulty in getting my shoes. Anyway, the high heel look gorgeous and it is really HIGH. If me, surely fall down the moment I wear it. :-)
