In my previous post for this series, I addressed the question: Are they me? As a follow-up (with special thanks to Miss Stacey K.), I’d like to explore the question: “Can they be me?” To do this, I’d like to share my Summertime story. It all started with the Summertime: Dig. When these babies went on sale, I was a newbie and didn’t really have a sense of what I actually liked. This family runs about 4″ high and has a platform. Given its height, I wasn’t really interested in trying them on. However, I’m all for shits and giggles, so I agreed to try on the Digs in black. I knew they weren’t me, but play time at the Fluevog store never hurt anyone.
When I put them on, I felt like a rockstar! (I even wore them to Rock of Ages in LA!) They didn’t feel like a 4″ heel at all. They were stable and made me feel incredibly tall. I fell in love with the extra studded strap and the thumping noise it makes when you walk is cool too! Fortunately, there was an amazing sale on these (they were marked down TWICE) and I brought them home. The Digs are an excellent example of a shoe that I didn’t think was me, but ended up being absolutely me! A shoe like this is the reason why it’s always good to try on new things. You never know what suits you unless you actually try it on!
I loved the Digs so much that I opted to add the Ashbury to my collection as well. (Totally scored a sale on those too!). It has the same stable platform and again, they make me feel like a rockstar!
For the love of Fluegasms,
