The style rookie, now thirteen and, as she says, “rather cynical and cute as a drained rat,” shows up in what appears to be these ASOS wedges, presumably acquired on her London trip, and delivers the following unexpected shoe wisdom:
I also just realized these wedges (80% off, juuuuust sayin) are knockoffs of two pairs of Marnis combined which makes me feel like a hypocrite since I argue constantly with my friends about knockoffs/the integrity of the artist/designer prices. (I will maybe post a rant about such eventually.) I like to wear them when I listen to Janis Ian and read magazines. Luckily I bike more than I walk, and you can’t bike in heels, so I don’t wear these often enough to ruin my future of having non-deformed feet. My mom likes to scare me with google images.
- Not everyone agrees that you can’t bike in heels.
- I find it somehow gratifying that someone thirteen is listening to Janis Ian, inasmuch as I was listening to Janis Ian when I was thirteen. (“Society’s Child” was released in 1966, when Janis was thirteen, but did not chart until the summer of 1967.)
As for the shoes themselves: meh.
