Lord Give Me Strength…Or At Least Flat Shoes

Lord Give Me Strength…Or At Least Flat Shoes Posted on January 22nd, 2013 in Style.

So, I recently had the honor of presenting the United Negro College Fund’s “Evening of the Stars.” It was a great night, and I met the MOST inspiring young people! I love the teens! I’ll be sharing a lot more in the days to come, but go ahead and mark your calendars and set your DVRs now because the show airs January 27th on BET! There’s music, inspirational stories, and so much fun. Don’t miss it!

But the point of this post, is to talk about the shoes I wore to this event. Well they’re not so much shoes, as they are foot sculptures. There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING comfortable or wearable about these shoes. They are, however, gorgeous. So I just thought of them as jewelry for the feet, and hobbled and winced my way down the red carpet. I have a secret though: I didn’t just bring these shoes to the event.I stashed a pair of flats in my purse and spent the entire evening changing in and out of them. It was actually hilarious, but at least the flats and heels matched!

    There is a kikuyu (a Kenyan Language) saying to the effect of – beauty is not for the faint hearted. The shoes are indeed lovely.

    LOL Where did you get the flats? I have retired the heels and only wear flats, cute flats. You can never go wrong with leopard.

    OMG love those shoes! Both pair actually. I want a leopard pair of pumps, but haven’t found the perfect ones for my budget. Those leopard Louboutin flats are darling.
