I love a gorgeous pair of heels as much as the next shoe enthusiast, but since I’m 5’10” I don’t really require any additional height. Not that added height is the only reason to wear heels, but the other benefits are outweighed by me not being able to drive in them (heels +longer legs = having to drive barefoot so knees fit under the steering wheel) or being able to sit at my desk with them on (the low desk equation is much like the car equation), so 9 times out of ten my footwear of choice is a cute pair of flats. The only down side to my flats fetish is that I run through them pretty quickly. I have a couple of pairs that I just can’t bear to part with, that keep getting inserts because the original insoles are long gone, but for the most part they get replaced pretty regularly. This winter has been particularly hard on my current collections, so I was delighted to see the enormous flats selection at Mod Cloth. I haven’t made any purchases yet, but here are the top ten pairs I am crushing on.
There are about 20 other pairs that I’d love, but I think it might not be a good idea to spend my entire paycheck on shoes.
