Wearing a pair of high pointed pumps, I thought I could cheer you up with a witty quote I came across recently:
“High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.” ― Christopher Morley
Must admit this is a viewpoint I’ve never accounted, and it made me smile. Though in reality the invention of high heels may have nothing to do with a woman being kissed on forehead, one thing is sure – there is a long history behind them. It’s commonly believed that the first instance of wearing heels happened in 1533 during the wedding of Catherine de’ Medici and Duke of Orleans. Interestingly, there are recordings stating that such shoes have been worn by Persian riders. Even pharaohs and nobles in Ancient Egypt would demonstrate power through them. One thing is certain – high heels have a long story full of transformation and evolution. I believe our ancestors would be amazed by the high heels as we know them now – in their absolute variety of shapes and heights. :) However, something hasn’t change and it’s the feeling of confidence and power they give to a woman!
After the discussion of high heels, I don’t think there is anything left I can add, except for the fact that these classic pointed pumps are my besties. Leaving this aside, I cannot miss but mention my other favorite part of this outfit – the pearl choker necklace. The first time I saw it I knew I had to have it. My most dear statement jewelry at the moment! Anyway, because I like casual chic, what better than breaking the rules and mixing pearls and boyfriend jeans? I don’t think it’s a bad idea since the gold top is balancing things out. Some may feel there are too many gold pieces in this outfit, but I feel there is nothing wrong about wearing golds during the day. In fact the incorporation of such pieces is making the outfit look a lot more polished.
