A Formal Goodbye to All the Heels I'll Never Wear

It's important to know that as a former fashion student, future fashion student and all-around passionate shopper, shoes are everything to me. I'm 5'10" but I could strut with the best of them in college. I wore the highest needle point stilettos I could get my hands on. I had strong, deep physical and emotional reactions to seeing shoes I loved. I think maybe in another life I would've been a shoe designer. I prided myself on always having wonderful heels. I never even owned non-athletic sneakers until I was on disability.

Guys, this is crushing my soul. And as much as I tried to make it work with me and heels, as many outfits as I would love to plan on wearing in London, every time I put on a heel, it just kills me. Pain shoots up my body. I can't move for the rest of the day. I can barely even walk in heels now. I am being semi felicitous and purposefully overdramatic but it is one of the little things I have to adjust to.   Sadly I still want to buy them all the time but I know practically they are of no used to me anymore. Guess it's just flats, boots and sandals for me now.


Here's a nice little list of all the dream heels I used to tell myself when I had the salary I would buy eventually.

Goodbye heels! I feel like I miss you and I don't even know you--the nights we could've had, the outfits you would've made me like an HBIC in, the blisters I could've hated you for, the men we would've towered over. It would've been real--real fun. Maybe someday we can be together again. 

I was going to make this into a love sonnet, but not even I have time for that.
