I love my Mary Jane shoes. I think I'm up to four pairs. I'm wearing grey today. I have a beautiful pair of a warm brown by clarks. A shiny khaki pair that are too high and I have not dared to wear-yet. And one or two more pair of black, striderite.
I know. It seems like a tedious topic. But you need to understand. Until very recently in my life, I thought you had to earn pretty things by being beautiful. I thought that in order to have cute clothing and shoes and undergarments, it was necessary to qualify as beautiful. A certain beauty that i just do not maintain. I am learning to allow myself to indulge in beautiful things even though I myself was disqualified from the earning potential by the beauty industry decades ago. ;) so, it isn't as shallow as it may seem.
