Nine West Rebeca Mary Jane Pumps (Wide) $80
on sale for $35 at Off Broadway
Prom is approaching REALLY FAST (mid March) and my date is 6' 1''…. I'm 5' 4.5" just to give you a comparison; yes, the 0.5" does matter. I'm so excited because this is my first REAL pair of heels (I own a pair of $11 dollar pumps from payless, but those are kind of a mess!) Until now, I held off buying heels because I didn't really feel the need to do so-- plus I thought they were a little bit too mature for my taste but if theres ever time to invest in a good pair, it's when you're going to be dancing the night away, right?
You might be like my mom and roll your eyes when I say this, but I really do think that they're comfortable! I'm not going to lie, I'm probably in the "advanced new born calf" stage when it comes to walking in them, but Ive basically been wearing these around the house non stop to get some practice. I'LL GET THERE GUYS, DONT WORRY! The length of the heel is 4 inches, but theres a subtle half inch of platform which makes it much easier to walk in, not to mention the fact that theres a nice bit of cushion for the balls of your feet. This shoe comes in wide, which is TWO THUMBS UP FROM ME! It's hard to accept, but I definitely have wide feet and it's such a nuisance when my shoes rub against the side of my pinky toe-- thats where I get blisters. <3 So much love for these beauties.
Im not too sure what it's called, but the part of the shoe covering the toes is almost like an arrow shape. I find it really flattering because I hate it when my toes peek through the top because they're not covered and I think these shoes do the opposite of that VERY well.
<-- i felt the need to include a picture in case no one understood me. I have abnormally long toes so this tends to happen a lot and I'm not a fan of that look! This is just a random picture from google btw…. and this may seem kind of counter productive but dang those shoes are actually pretty cute…
And then theres the strap--- oh my. I've always loved that retro Mary Jane strap and I'm so glad that it's coming back around! I've heard that it makes your legs look shorter, but WHATEVER. I love it.
