One of my favourite sayings is “Never come between a woman & her shoes” because it’s so true. But there’s the big puzzle. Why are shoes so important to us?
Naturally, as a Singapore emcee I get the opportunity to wear lots of gorgeous shoes, & I think one of the reasons we girls are so captivated by them is the way they transform an outfit.
Flatties give us an easy going feel – a comfortable, no-nonsense vibe. Before a show, I carry a foldable pair that I can squash into my handbag so my feet can stay comfortable during rehearsals.
When it’s show time – I bring out the big guns. These are the ‘designer’ shoes. They have the highest heels, the sequins, the diamontes, the bling bling, and when you pair them together with a great dress, the dress comes alive. These unique, special shoes make an outfit look spectacular.
When I check out the lovely girls in the audience, I like to admire their looks as well, & invariably my eyes will always go down to their shoes. I somehow don’t think men do this, perhaps it’s a girl thing.
It doesn’t matter whether women are short, fat, tall, thin, black, white or green with purple stripes; we all look good in a great pair of shoes.
I have to say, as painful as they are, my favourite type of shoe is a stiletto. There isn’t a woman on the planet whose legs don’t look better with stylish stilettos on her feet.
I also adore boots, but, as a master of ceremonies, I don’t get too many opportunities to wear boots. If you know Singapore, then you know we have 2 types of weather here. Hot & more hot! Even in air conditioning, boots are not very practical, as our feet tend to swell in the humidity. Nevertheless, for “Theme” shows, I will wear boots when they’re called for, & especially if they bring the costume to life.
I love to travel overseas during winter months, as that’s the greatest opportunity to wear my lovely boot collection in comfort.
Of course I have to talk about sandals too, because we have so many terrific beaches in Asia. There’s nothing better than walking along the beach promenade, with a floaty dress, hair flowing in the wind, wearing a gorgeous pair of colourful, beaded sandals. From young to older, all girls can femme fatales feel fabulous in this.
Nowadays, the shoe designers have outdone themselves & they create what I really think are wearable ‘works of art’ for our feet.
I think that’s why I love shoes so much – we can adorn our feet with ‘living art’.
Check out the pictures of this most amazing array of shoes. I’m lucky to say some of them are mine – my precious – & some of them are so mind boggling, I don’t know how the designers come up with these ideas. Either way…..enjoy!
