ShooStories: Time to get serious


The Shoo: My Day at Work
Circa: Aug-Oct 2001
Where: Shoo store called Mollini in Melbourne

The Story: I have never been a corporate type. I love suits but somehow they just look weird on me, especially the jacket bit. I'm more of a casual, flip-flops kind of girl. But when I was about to graduate in Australia, I realised it was time to start building a more work-like wardrobe. My dad had come over to attend my graduation so we were taking a little holiday in Melbourne first. Mollini is a really nice Aussie shoe label that has stores in all the major cities. We wandered in to ogle the shoos, and I saw a pretty corporate-type girl try on this pair of pointy wedge slingbacks. She had on a very smart outfit and I thought, I could be like that too! And decided to try on the same pair. And the rest, as they say, is shoo history.

Now, I wear this pair when I have serious work meetings and important conferences to attend. It makes me feel more corporate and "I am independent wo-man". But at heart, I'm still a flip-flops girl. :)
