It's back in style. And you hate it.

My latest post for BlogHer is about that sinking sensation you get when a style you remem-ber--and remember hating--is revived.

In my case, it's the kitten heel.

Check out my post--it features tiny cameo appearances by LPC of Privilege and blackbird of say la vee--among the newest and oldest friends I've made in my career as a mid-life style blogger.

So far, I've got one comment expressing horror over the return of the kitten heel, and one expressing delight.



Let me know what you think.

  1. I like kitten heels...or flats. as I have trouble walking in 4 inch spikes...I am quite possibly the only one on the planet!

  3. Yup, I'm with you. Horror doesn't even begin to express my level of dismay over the return of this trend.

  4. I don't mind the kitten heel. I think it's kind of cute. I DO mind wearing any sort of heels with socks (like the last picture). Ugh.

  5. I can't wear the big stonking heels that have dominated for the last few years, so I'm happy to see at least mid-heels (under 3") actually *available*.

  7. I sprained my ankle in the shower about two years ago and I can no longer wear my beloved heels. Now, kitten heels are all I can wear. First, I will assume that I was the trend setter. Now I am happier that my shoes will be chic!

  8. I LOVE kitten heels.

    I hate black hose with nude shoes. (I realize the toe was black. That doesn't make it OK)

  10. Love kitten heels too. Not really seeing them in stores, though....Not that I need another pair of shoes.

  11. hostess: It's just that I find the combination of low height and stiletto shape mind-bogglingly difficult to balance on.

    FF: Yay! Another for our side!

    Melissa: And doesn't it seem that these were just in style, maybe six or seven years ago? Or am I losing my grip?

    KMay: That's Prada for you. Miuccia is big on Ugly-is-Beautiful.

    Deja Pseu: I hear you. Although the YouTube videos of models falling off their platforms are always good for a laugh.

    LPC: Thanks again for letting me use your photograph!

    Danielle: Ouch! Well, I'm glad kitten heels are making someone happy.

    Mary A. What??? Black hose with nude shoes? A Don't? Don't you realize Ugly is Beautiful??? (I agree.)

    Suniverse: You're entitled to your opinion, but I hope you realize you just got cut from Miuccia Prada's Christmas card list.

    Genuine Lustre: Oh, this is just runway stuff at the moment. I'm guessing they'll be in stores in time for spring.

  12. I'm on the horror side. Don't plan to be buying any kitten heels.

  13. Like them better than the 4" spikes that have been popular of late, but that's not saying much. I think most women look unbalanced in them, and I can't walk in them.

  14. I like them! but then I have 5.5 size feet and I can walk in them. Time to break them out again!!! WOO HOO!
