Can I *Really* Get Away with These?

I came across some very cute and crafty shoes in the Em and Sprout Etsy shop during my Internet travels. When I saw these shoes, I immediately thought Hannah (my 2-year-old niece) would love these. Then I realized these shoes are for ladies, and some were even in my size (which is astounding given that I wear a size 11, AKA giantess).

I'm all for super cute things--especially shoes. And I'm very much drawn to the bunny shoes below, but then I started thinking, can I really get away with these. My inner Stacey and Clinton (from TLC's What Not to Wear) keeps saying hell no! But then my inner 12-year-old (which is fairly predominant voice in my head), says hell yeah! If my feet were smaller, I'd probably go with the 12-year-old. But since I have ogre feet, Stacey and Clinton are winning (plus they know that my inner 12-year-old with convince me that these are work appropriate..."climbing the corporate ladder" shoes!). Hmm...I'm undecided. And since I have no money anyway at the moment, I have plenty of time to think (and take advice).

these are adorable, but my 10.5 wide feet would look ridiculous in them. i can't wear uggs because my feet are so huge. but i would totally buy some for my kids.

Yeah, ridiculous is the right word for it. I guess with my crazy sense of humor, I accept my feet by making fun of them though. =)

I saw these too, but I fell in love with the little oranges on the neon orange version. Now those would be corporate ladder climbing shoes! Gotta catch someone's eye, right?

Oh wow!! My 12 year old self is coming out too! But then... yes, I'd probably never wear these after buying.. but the urge is sooo powerful... can't resist... must resist...
