Making The Case For Wearing Mismatched Shoes

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

The Funniest Instagram Accounts
There are times we go on Instagram to just kind of go into a state of mind-numbing pleasure. But sometimes we get less nice content and more, well, annoying posts from our friends in Mykonos. If FOMO has got you down then the best way to liven up your Instagram is by adding some humor. […]

As any fashion queen knows, one of the most critical choices is deciding which shoes go with an outfit best. We all have been there standing in front of the mirror with one flat on one foot and a different one on the left. But here’s the thing…what if you could wear both? Well, it’s becoming increasingly clear that mismatched shoes are making their debut onto the runway.

 

Chitose Abe, the designer of Sacai, dressed her models in mismatched zebra and leopard shoes on the Fall runway in 2018. Just a year before that, Phoebe Philo showcased a pink dress paired with one white and one red boot at Celine. And years ago back in 2011, Helena Bonham-Carter (honestly, who else? She can literally do anything) showed up to the Golden Globes wearing one green and one pink shoe. The actress told the press, “Why not wear mismatched shoes? Who says we can’t? I was just having fun. For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together. That’s what I love. I genuinely love dressing up.”

 

The trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Back in 2017, Selena Gomez rocked a pair of mules that had one square heel and one circular. Other celebs who have jumped on the mismatched train include Nicole Kidman and Naomie Harris, who have all tried this at some point.

 

So if you’re feeling trendy and want to take a page out of these celebrities’ playbooks, you might find that picking out your outfit in the morning a lot more fun!
