Modesty’s the Best Policy

17 Dec

Well, here’s another pet peeve of mine. It’s a particular style that I do not like, I’m sorry if you disagree. But I know Danica agrees, so that’s enough for me to post about it.

Strappy heals.

There are so many other beautiful pairs of shoes out there. The wedge, the pump, the peep toe. But the strappy heal? It’s like a time machine back to 9th grade’s homecoming dance.

Yeah, I know… but yours are cute…. Or yours just work well with a certain outfit.

The shoe itself may be cute. I can believe that. But I personally do not believe they are the shoes for you. And I will tell you why.

Strappy heals show all of your toes. No one really ever wants to see all ten of them just hanging out. If we’re at the beach, that’s one thing. But to church, to a party, especially in the winter, it’s just not appropriate.

You say you want to show off your fresh pedicure? No problem. That’s why peep toes were made. They show enough but not too much. But please, say no to strappy and cover your toes.

    I fully support this movement! Purge the world of strappy sandals! Especially those with disgusting satin–there is one ONE day in your life post prom when it is okay to wear those, your wedding day, and even then it is best to go sans straps.

    I totally agree with you! Cover up those toes!!! 🙂 Plus…who doesn’t need an excuse for more shoes? (a BYU student blogging…)
