The minute I opened my mouth and said “I will never wear kitten heels!”, I knew I was going to eat my words. I mean, how can I say ‘never’ in fashion when there’s many variety out there that many trends, kitten heels included, can look quite cool. Yes, I used the words ‘cool’ and ‘kitten heels’ in the same sentence. *kidlat*
I believe that it’s not the height or shape of the heel that bothers me, but the phrase ‘kitten heels’ to me sounds uhm, “weak”. Shoes are powerful style weapons and to call it as such is lame.
Now back to the “kitten heels can look quite cool”, Valentino’s RockStud is the perfect marriage of pretty and punk. It rocks!
Did you know?
Kitten heels were introduced in the late 1950s as formal fashion attire for young adolescent teenage girls as higher heels would have been considered unseemly for girls as young as 13 because of the sexual connotations and unease of walk. They were sometimes referred to as “trainer heels” in the US, indicating their use in getting young girls used to wearing high heels. via Wikipedia
The Valentino Rockstud Kitten heels come in a variety of colors. This taupe and mauve combo is my favorite!
I’m “Secret-ing” this pair. Here kitty, kitty!
Shoppingero/shoppingera, is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
