ST. PETERSBURG – I am not competing with the fashionistas on Metro and in my classroom.
Seriously, I’ve been dazzled by the clothes and footware of Russian ladies and teenagers. Over the last few days, I’ve seen them wear beautiful shoes. Stylish ladies of all ages meander along around Bolshoy pr. and Nevsky pr. wearing stilettos, pumps and heels in a rainbow of colors.
I know I can’t walk far in high heels. At Susan’s wedding, traded my cute green shoes with the wooden heels in favor of flip flops. Stylish flip flops with beads.
I’ve left those flip flops in my closet because they just don’t cut it in St. Petersburg. Comfy but a little too casual for these sophisticated streets.
