in the meantime, we tried on some various articles of clothing. i sampled this psychedelic looking see-through shirt, amanda tried on this nice looking half denim jacket. we also hit the shoes section. if you're looking for hoochie shoes for the ladies, make the garment district a stop on your list of places to visit. i even bought a pair of used doc martens for $18, just something to wear when i ride (it's bad form to wear thick soled sneakers on a motorcycle).
my adventure with shoes did not end there however. no, far from it. by late afternoon, in a bout of decaffeinated coffee inspired friskiness, i asked to borrow amanda's platforms so i could try them out. i wanted to know what the hype was all about, what exactly is the big deal about platforms? platforms, which i personally think are very ugly shoes. so i slip them on and know what? they're actually pretty comfortable! i thought maybe it'd be like walking on stilts, but it's the complete opposite. they were pretty soft, cushioned, and walking around i didn't feel like i'd teeter over like i would on heels (don't ask how i know this).
