I knew as soon as I saw those adorable shoes up there in the middle that I couldn't afford them. They would never be mine. Normally, I opt out of admiring things I can't have (like, you know, Samira Wiley)… but when it comes to footwear, I make exceptions. I like to imagine the fantastical cocktail parties I'll never attend in these shoes, the meetings with publicists in Los Angeles that will never happen, the TED Talks I'll never deliver, and the standing ovations I'll never know. Sometimes, a little fantasy is just fine.

  1. Some of those shoes can be justified whether or not you go to fancy parties or meetings with publicists. I'd wear some of those for sex!

  2. Ever since I went back into lab work full time, I've stared at my collection of heels in sadness. I love all of them so much, but without a teaching gig to dress up for I have little reason to wear them. I, too, stare at shoes I can never have and fantasize about the many places and reasons I would wear them that will never happen!

  3. You had me at the mention of Samira Wiley. I rarely have celebrity crushes, but I can't get enough of her! I'm not even in to women (and I'm married) and I would totally date her.

    Also, the shoes are cute!
