Sometimes being a woman kind of sucks (this is a shocker to all, I know). The life of a woman is not always a Shania Twain dance-fest (am I dating myself?); sometimes the fun aspects of being a girl (men’s shirts, short skirts) can be just plain inconvenient. Sure, it’s ridiculously fun to get all dolled up for a night out dancing with the girls, curling your hair while singing along to Top 40 songs, but then you get to the club and realize - motherfucker, now you have to carry around your super cute clutch all night, and even though it’s super cute, you really wish you had a freaking pocket or something to put your cell phone/lipstick/taser inside instead.
After all, how’s a girl supposed to show off her latest dance moves if she has one of those cumbersome purse wrist straps holding her down? If she’s with a willing male companion (or a woman who happens to be wearing a pocket-endowed getup, of course), she can force him to stretch out his pants’ pockets by loading him down with all her night-out essentials, but that’s just a lose-lose situation (he has to avoid snapping her credit card in half when he sits, and she has to confront the fact that she’s basically not a truly independent woman).
Thankfully, Elizabeth Anne LeGear, a 28-year old Canadian entrepreneur, came up with an ingenious solution that’s sure to make everyone quite content in this unfortunate weekend-night scenario: Purse N’ Shoes. Her idea was elegantly simple and oh-so-brilliant: she combined women’s two favorite accessories (purses and shoes) into one super stylish and comfortable package.
Elizabeth Anne’s gorgeous boots are comfortable enough to hit the dance floor in, yet cute enough to ensure more than one compliment per outing. My personal favorite is the Indian Princess style (can you tell I’m from the Southwest?):
The best part? No one would ever be able to tell that functional little pockets are built right into these boots’ interior structures to hold all the essentials. The shoes’ hidden pockets hold everything you could possibly decide you need when you go out for a night of fun: your iPhone, Blackberry, makeup, cash, ID, loose change, even your passport (you know, for when you plan to have a REALLY good night). While all your friends get their purses searched at the concert security checkpoints, you’ll waltz right on through (not that, you know, I condone sneaking in anything worth sneaking in…).
Shoes that are fashion-forward, comfortable, AND will let you bust out your killer “Gangnam Style” gallup like no one’s business? Now that’s good shit.
