I have noticed a trend: When I haven’t been out dancing in a while, I start daydreaming about shoes. Suddenly, the shoes become the most interesting part of dancing. (I am reminded of the blog post where Royce dissects a tango shoe. Take a look, if you haven’t already.)
I know what pair I want next. I am wearing summery clothes a lot now, and I noticed that I don’t have a good pair of shoes to go with my light-colored clothing. All of my shoes contain either black or dark brown. I would love a pair of white or tan shoes, preferably a sandal with a thick sling back and a three-inch heel. I am keeping an eye out for a pair like that.
I am also seriously considering a light purple pair. I wear enough purple to justify it, but I can’t decide quite what I would want–just purple? Purple and black? Purple and brown? Purple and some other color? Again, I am just watching what shoes are coming up for sale and making note of anything that looks almost-right.
Good thing I haven’t seen quite what I want, though. I have better things to save up for.
