Rave On!

I've been experimenting with different shoes trying to find which ones I can walk in with minimal pain, and oddly enough, my Swear platform boots that I purchased many years ago are one of the more comfortable pairs.  They were a much more common sight during the days of Raves in the late 1980's and early 90's, but not so much anymore, and many times I have thought it was time to let them go.  I refer to them as my Frankenstein boots, and thought that if I was going to wear them to work, I'd better minimize the monster vibe with a cute dress.   And they are fun to pose in because I can balance on my toes!

I can't believe that people (including me) used to dance in these!

Pardon me while I experience a flashback...

  1. I miss the styles that went with those boots. When they were popular I already felt way too tall (and still do usually) to wear those thick soles. You look great!!

  3. What a great way to minimize your pain! Your creativity reigns no matter the circumstances. The lavender fingerless arm warmers are the perfect posing accessory, along with the boots, of course. Brava!

  4. Shelley, you are fantastic - I adore your exuberant spirit! We are Calvin Klein dress twins, just in different prints, look: http://butaneanvil.blogspot.ca/2012/09/time-machine.html - awesome! It gave me the great-big-clompy-boot and knee socks feeling too! :)

    That has to be the most fun way to heal sore feet ever. Rave on is right!
