Carri patent peep toe nude Jessica Simpson pumps

The most recent addition to my closet are a pair of nude Jessica Simpson pumps. They have the honor of being my first fashion purchase in 2015. I found them on sale at Amazon.com for $39.99. The regular price is $89.99. Jessica Simpson Carri Nude Patent peep toe pumps 1Jessica Simpson Carri Nude Patent peep toe pumps 1-2

I’ve been wanting to try some platform heels for a while just to see if I can actually walk in them. Everything I read suggests platform heels are fairly easy to walk in because of the platform giving some extra support. These nude Jessica Simpson pumps have a 5.5 inch heel and a 1.5 inch platform. To be honest I don’t find them any easier to walk in than any other pair of high heels. So I guess I’m just hopeless when it comes to high heel shoes. But I’ll keep trying. In the meantime I decided to have a little fun with the pumps today taking some pictures of them on my feet. Unfortunately most of the pictures came out unusable due to bad lighting. But here are a couple of me trying out the pumps with a pair of old lint covered knee high socks.

I probably would not actually ever step out wearing socks with pumps. And I definitely would not venture out in 5.5 inch heels. I struggle in 3 inch heels so it would be silly of me to attempt to wear these shoes in public. If you’re going to wear high heels you need to be able to walk in them like a champ and I can’t. So these will just get added to my collection of shoes that I never wear.

Verdict on the Carri patent peep toe nude Jessica Simpson pumps

I do actually like the shoes. I love the color. They fit perfectly. Mine are 8.5. I’m sure if you’re a little better at walking in heels than I am you’ll have no trouble with the heel height. I can’t speak to the comfort of the shoes because I’ve only worn them in my bedroom and living room. I have to say, when I put the socks on the shoes did become a little bit more painful to wear than when I didn’t have on socks. They hurt the bottom of my feet towards the front quite a bit and were much harder to try to walk in. But I suspect I just didn’t have the correct form. I probably wasn’t standing the right way in the heels.

Additional Observations

My pair did not have the animal print design on the insole. I guess there’s a difference between the Carri and the JS-Carri nude Jessica Simpson pumps.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
