Why yes those are gold sequins on my feet


At my little sister’s pre-school they used to sing a special song every time a kid came in with a new pair of shoes. I applaud this. Not only does it instil music education, but the importance of fashion to the impressionable youth.

Today I feel like singing.

“New shoes, new shoes, Lauren has new shoes. New shoes, new shoes, new shoes Yay!”

Please, join me.

I can’t remember the last time I bought a pair of shoes that did not give me blisters. They are Ked-like in their simplicity and comfort. Capable of keeping up with a busy city girl’s pavement pounding, yet they are stylish enough to accompany me to a day at the office, a cocktail party, or even a pumpkin carving festival.

They are perfect. They are mine.

And the best part was that I went into the shoe store only a few minutes before they closed, and so had four sales people at my beck and call. I traipsed around the store claiming they were like walking on air. I then dramatically looked each of them in the eye and said with a flourish, “I’ll take ‘em!”

I like your new shoe song! Funnily enough there is more than one "new shoe song" out in the world...I know another! It goes "new shoes, brand new shoes, decorate my feet between me & the street. I got new shoes, brand new shoes" I sing it every time I get new shoes. Well, in my head.

These are so cute! I love your idea. I will sing a similar song every time I'm at Taco Bell, to celebrate the beauty of their Burrito Supremes. They are all I can think about tonight . . .
