Sometimes I just feel this intense need of going back to my childhood and fulfill all the dreams I had and was not able to achieve and sometimes it happens that this need mirrors in an outfit. Looks like that was the case this time with this cheerful ballerina look.
But no no no, let’s get back to reality… I never ever wanted to be a ballerina or anything girly at all. I was more kind of a boyish girl playing with Lego bricks and walking around in distressed jeans and oversized Mickey Mouse tees. The color pink was the ugliest color in my opinion and skirts were just slutty. Well, people change, huh? But there is one love that has truly always accompanied me: High Heels! Even if I acted and dressed more like a boy than a girl, I have always been fascinated by heels, especially the ones with killer high heels. I have always been trying to walk in my mothers shoes but well, obviously it never ends lucky to walk in high heels which are several sizes to big. Anyway, all the croppers and scratches they caused didn’t broke my love for this kind of shoes. And guess what’s the result of this endless and always growing love… a collection of 200+ pairs at the age of 22.
