Worst Trends of the Season: Jelly Shoes

Disclaimer: the following are my own views, I apologise if you feel offended because you feel you pull off this particular trend. Yes, So Versailles is about completely owning your outfit and killing it and pushing your boundaries and doing you, but there are certain things that I feel no one looks good in…except for Rihanna, cause she looks good in everything.

Warning: this post is particularly harsh but let’s just keep in mind that I am a bit funny and this might be a joke…

There is an age limit on jelly shoes, and that age is 10, with a tolerance of 50%. If you are legally an adult and you are making the sane and conscious decision to buckle on these shoes in the morning then you not only need to consider a good therapist but possibly medication.

Even Rihanna can’t get away with this one. The jelly shoe is horrible and is the thing of nightmares along with scary clowns (a la American Horror Story) and murderous dolls. No one, I repeat, no one can make this shoe look stylish or even fashionable. I think someone decided to make this trend as a joke: someone with a lot of Instagram followers decided as a joke to shove whatever toes they could into the child’s size jelly shoe and take a picture. Next thing you know their stupid followers thought he/she was starting a trend and the world followed. It needs to stop. Even if I used a followers app and had a lot more people viewing my content, a trend like this is not something that I would want to start.

If you wear these shoes around me, I have no choice but to be passive-aggressive towards you. Everything about the shoe is questionable: the rattling buckle, the fact that if it rains you’ll be sliding all over the place, the fact that some of them have a heel *Cassie retches*, the fact that some people knowing that these shoes are see-through decide that no one with notice their unpainted toenails *Cassie throws up*.

What is enticing you!? The increased airflow to the toes? Get a pair of flip flops. The jelly-like plastic texture? Get a pair of flip flops. The sliding around your feet do when they’re sweaty inside the rubber cage you’ve slipped on them? Get help. If anything, think of the tan lines, they’ll be awful.

If you think you can wear socks with them and that will be fine because you think this is trendy then right at the top of this page is a red “x” that you can click on, ’cause you’re on the wrong blog.

    I hate jelly shoes as well!!! They smell after a while and I’m sure people don’t wash them regularly!
