OK, so maybe not "perfectly". I have a tendency to get all wrapped up in a good deal, and ignore things like, oh, shoes being too big. These shoes reminded me so much of Barbie that I couldn't resist them. I LOVED Barbie growing up, I played with them well into junior high. I excused it by blaming my little sister, but really I loved to play. We were pretty vicious, stripping all the dolls bare and taking turns picking dolls and outfits. So clearly there was some nostalgia at work when I bought these pumps.
Adding to the nostalgia was the fact that I clomped around like a little girl playing dress up ALL DAY because the shoes would not stay on my feet!!! By the end of the day my feet were killing me, but I felt oh so pretty! A student said I looked like I had traveled straight from the 1980s with today's outfit, and I said, "Yeah, I know! Like a friggin' awesome Barbie doll!" I don't think he meant it as a compliment, but Barbie shoes just change a girl's perspective. Even if they are too big!
