Who am I and why am I so determined to catch Anna? I think maybe it’s a bug that catches you when you’re a little girl and you discover that your mom’s heels and grandma’s sewing machine make much better playthings than hula hoops and basketballs (despite your already ridiculously lanky limbs). Maybe it was when you realized that you are really good at telling other people what to wear. Maybe for me, it’s my inner nerd coming out, combining my love for books and shoes to create the perfect storm of magazine obsession. Who knows.
What I do know, however, is that I love running in heels. Hopefully, this little scrapbook of my journey can help you understand why and maybe give you other runway marathoners-in-training a little bit of advice as I trip my way along.
In my final year of college, three magazine internships, 120 credits and countless memories later, I’m still trying to figure it out, but hey, fashion (like life) is a constantly changing maze, so take a cue from Betsey and do some cartwheels along the way.
