I've officially become a flats person.


Ras Women's RA29-927FA2S Dress Flat with Bow

Along with my sudden interest in gardening, I think it's just another sign that I am getting old. Oh well.

There are worse things...love those shoes.

Signs of getting old are forgetfulness and incontinence. Flats & gardening? Not a worry.

Emily said...

thank you, snobertson. Decorno had me worried for a minute that I, too, am getting old.

Instead it's just that I have my own yard for the first time in my life and I Love Those Shoes. :-)

Oh god, gardening is for the young. I let everything run wild now that I am middle-aged and decrepit.

Satin flats in Seattle? You are brave. I also avoid suede and silk. Basically I'm down to just Crocs.

Make it a trifecta and start knitting.

if these two things qualify you as old, i've been in mom jeans for years. thanks a lot!

Another sign of oldness, admiring my newly acquired freckles last summer only to have my dermatalogist tell me that they're age spots.

You aren't getting old lovie, smart women wear flats of any fabric and garden! And crocs are the devil's work.

Emily said...

Oh, it happened to me too. I used to be a 'heels to the supermarket' kind of girl. Now I can barely bring myself to wear them to work.

You and me both.

no, no, i'm 20 and i've been wearing flats nearly exclusively since i'm 18 (after dabbling in wearing heels for my high school prom). there's just something effortless and nonchalant about pairing most amazing dress you own with flats - sofia coppola-esque.

Yeah, i think it's very audrey hepburn fancy and a lovely antidote to all the stripper shoes we've been seeing Paris/ JLO/ Jessica Simpson et al sporting these past few years. Welcome to Team Flats, Decorno; the view is great down here.

As long as your feet don't spill over the tops of the flats, you're fine. And Don't Shuffle Your Feet. And No Stirrup pants. Or Ass Covering Sweaters.

Shit, I'm afraid you're headed for black rubber bracelets and a permed bob.

Wearing flats is the perfect decision to make, specially when we are getting older. It's much better to wear flats that are not only comfortable, secure walking but chick. Let's wear flats in all different kinds of colors, textures, designs. An you know something? if you wear them for your Wedding, nobody will notice high heels and you will enjoy the party......................

Pretty and affordable. Thanks, D! My back can't take your usuals.

And gardening is good for the soul.

There is no shame in flats. If Louboutin designs them, we can wear them.

And I knit... and sew. I may simply be rebelling against the '90's me who spent $3K @ Barneys without blinking, but I actually like it. Plus I feel so much better after a spree @ Purl than I ever did walking out the door @ Mario's...

Ooh, those are cute! And cute flats are a good thing, esp. when your mind tells you 'WEAR THOSE 4" HEELS TODAY!' but your body tells you 'if you do, you'll break an ankle...a possibly a hip!' *sigh* Crocs have now become a weekend staple for me as well.

Forgetfulness and incontinence, snobertson? Gads, I'm already well on my way, apparently. :(

Ladies...look around. None of us young ones are wearing anything higher than a kitten heel nowadays anyway. Flats and skinny jeans are where it's at!

citysage said...

Flats? Exclusively.

Gardening? Uh-huh. I even have the ugly clogs that come with that activity.

And yesterday I discovered that at the ripe old age of 26 I am getting crows feet.

SPF 1500? Check. Big ugly old lady hat? Yup.

If you're old, what does that make me--Sophia from The Golden Girls?

Loved these so much I bought a pair, in teal (can you say Copy Cat?) They arrived moments ago and I'm praying that the hard part digging into my heels will soften up as I break these in. Who says flats are always more comfortable that heels!?
