Fashion Question

What is up with the sequin covered shoes ladies? And I do not mean cute party flats. I am referring to the Uggs and Toms that now come bedazzled with shiny metallic circles. Uggs are for keeping your feet warm. They are for getting from point A to point B without your toes freezing off. Toms are overpriced pieces of canvas stapled to a rubber sole that you buy to make yourself feel like you have done some sort of good for the world you live in. Neither of these are party shoes. They are not for going out clubbing. They are not for wearing for fancy occasions or anything else one might normally associate sequins with. I don’t get it ladies. I probably should have asked the woman I spotted on the subway today. She had long nails covered in silver glitter nail polish and an iPhone case that was leopard print sequins with a huge black sequin bow on the back. She probably has several pairs of these functional turned ridiculous shoes in her closet.

I teach yoga, write, and edit. I live in a Brooklyn neighborhood that is changing faster than I can, or care to, keep up with. Manhattan still beckons me to her island a few subways stops away, reminding me of when I lived amongst her daily hustle and bustle.
