Stumbling


When I saw these shoes online from Forever 21, they only offered sizes 7 and/or 8. I'm a 7 1/2. What's a girl to do? I bought those motherfuckers (excuse my language). Unfortunately, I went for the 7 instead of the 8, so they squeeze my toes a bit. Adding on to the squeezing, I'm horrible when it comes to walking in heels. I pretty stumbled all the way to Rite Aid (my destination) and all the way back to my dorm. Nevertheless, I loved wearing them as they made me feel taller.


So as you've probably noticed, I made a whole lot of changes to my blog. I stayed up until sunrise in order to get it all done since I knew that if I didn't finish it all in one sitting, I'd never finish (why can't I do that with my homework?) I'm pretty satisfied with it as of now...but PLEASE let me know any comments and/or suggestions you guys have. Also, there's now a link to my formspring in the right column just so all the general questions get piled up there. :)

  1. those shoes are adorable, you made the right choice going for the smaller sizes! i'm sure you'll get used to them, whereas too big and they would've kept falling off your feet!
    i have awkward feet sizes too so experience dilemas such as these!! haha :P

    I also very much like your skirt! and I sometimes have a hard time walking in heels too, haha. good luck practicing!

  5. Ah, I'm the same way with heels! I wore a pair of wedges today and it took me FOREVER to get to class : D

  6. gorgeous! and your blog is looking great

    love the shoes! I learned that walking in high heels is all down to confidence-if you strut a lil clumsily but like the world is your oyster, no one notices. WORK IT haha

    i'll never forget my first heels which i tried walking in to a choir practise when i was 14..so embarrassing, literally clinging onto ANYTHING in the street for my dear life

  11. Lol the same here! I end up hobbling because if they're not wedges they tend to hurt after a while! Well it's worth the pain because you're ensemble is beautiful down to the heart shaped socks. It's all about the detail! I love your blog layout. I'm still dumbfounded about how to work with blogger ;p. <3

  14. I'm dying over your shoes, 100%. So damn cute. Just love this post and outfit altogether. Saved to my inspiration file!

  15. I actually bought those same shoes in black. Loved them, but unfortunately they squeezed my poor toes to death even though they were my size, so I had to return them. They look really cute on you though! Especially with those socks! Can't get any cuter. :]

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, I find with F21 shoes that, unless they actually have your size (which is rare for us half-sizers), its better to go a size up. I bought a pair of flats in a size smaller and they didn't fit at all... I had to donate them... :(
    But lovely outfit! And the changes to the site are nice too, everything is nicely organized. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ouuhhhh I love love love the new layout!! And those socks are so cute! It's a shame those shoes are tight... well next time you'll know what to do when life offers you two sizes! Always bigger! :P

  18. The shoes LOOK great, but too bad about that extra squeeze. The whole outfit is so cute (I love the belt).

    And the new layout is great. Very bold and crisp.

  29. I love the skirt and the belt! The shoes are adorable too (despite your pain in wearing them). I actually just bought a pair of peep toes from Forever 21 online and ran into the same problem with sizes. I'm a 6 /12 and they only had a 6 and a 7. I went with the smaller size, and they pinch my feet just a little, but I am pretty them in no matter what! What we go through for beauty and fashion :)

    Oh, and your comment was so sweet! Thanks :) I love reading your blog!

  49. Hi Jenn :)

    Thanks for the comment. I actually do want to make more shirts for sale, but I'd need more shirts. There are some tutorials online on shirt cutting if you want to try it out. It's a lot of fun =)

    Fantastic shoes, look great particularly with this pattern on socks.

  64. Forever 21 has so stepped up their game in terms of shoes - I keep stumbling upon pairs that I want to buy. But alas, I can't buy anymore shoes - I already went a little wild with Cynthia Vincent for Target. :P

    Loving your new layout - the three column look is my favorite!! :)

  68. Wow, the blog is awesome! You really did a nice job around hee :) I wish I knew how to make it :)
    And hey, you're shining on those shoes, the outifit is simple but it's also chic matching with your mood and background! I looooved every single piece of it =)

    Ahh, I know how it feels when the shoes are not our size, this is the big issue for me nowadays. I have big feet and it isn't easy for me to get pretty + COMFORTABLE heels =/ If I decide to call them 'motherfuckers' and bring them home I regret the other day :P

    Anyways...

    About the song on my last post, yes, the movie Once is AMAZING! It's on the top of my favorite movies list, below Amelie hahaha <3

    I loved Glen's voice and I have the wole soundtrack here in my pc. If you want to download it, follow this link: http://www.4shared.com/file/p1B8g7sX/Once_-_Soundtrack_2007.htm

    Have a lovely weekend, flower!

  70. Oh sweet new layout Jenn! Loving those shoes and socks. And no worries, I literally face planted the other night in heels causing my friends to force me to take the metro instead of walking any further...I'm practicing! We'll both get better at it in time no worries :P
