It's not that I don't love high heels.
I wear them religiously in countries that require less walking than Singapore, but that's not my beef with these. It's just that th....
Wait, a minute.
Hold the phone.
Is that a? Oh wait yes. It definitely is.
Check out the length of that toenail.
She better watch out or she's gonna pop the back tire with that thing. I bet it could even be considered as a deadly weapon. Look at it! It could totally cut someone's Achilles tendon.
Yet, this is not the first or second or third time I've seen heels paired with something uber casual and eagle talon toenails.
Women here love love love their heels. So much so that they often don't even care if they coordinate with the outfit's style or color.
Pajama pants? Let's wear the four inch stilettos! Grubby t-shirt and shorts? Put on the red sequined heels! Athletic pants and a sports bra? Platforms all the way baby.
While I appreciate a cute pair of shoes, I'm not digging the whole idea of "dressy on the bottom, casual on the top". It's like fashion's equivalent of a mullet.
Then come the toenails (that are usually sticking out of the above mentioned heels). I'm sorry, I know this is a cultural difference, but it just absolutely freaks me out. Some of the toenails here are longer than most fingernails I've seen.
So I have some questions.
How do you wear normal shoes?
Don't you hurt people when you walk too fast behind them?
Haven't you cut someone with those before?
Those cover the basics of the questions I have. I'm sure I'll have more later. Now I have to go trim my toenails because I just feel "eewy" after seeing that much toenail.
