WeWriWa—Beautiful feet


Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, weekly Sunday hops where writers share 8–10 sentences from a book or WIP. This week’s snippet comes a few lines after last week’s. Igor has arrived at his birthday party and commented to Violetta about how she’s the first person to arrive, and asked if she’d like to get some egg cream and pop.

Violetta says they say soda in New York, gives him a wrapped present, and explains she came to see Mireena and Milena before the party. Without giving any details, she says they were so good to her when she had a long illness during the war.


Igor casts his gaze to Violetta’s feet, which are encased in sapphire blue peep-toe flats adorned with silk roses.  From what he can see of Violetta’s feet through the peepholes, she’s wearing ruby red stockings.  A delicate silver ankle watch studded with pink pearls is on her right foot, and an intricate gold anklet with teardrop-shaped emeralds is on her left foot.

Out of fear of making himself look like some kind of perverted foot fetishist, he dares not compliment her on how beautifully she styles her feet, nor to ask if she has any shoes that aren’t flats.  Igor is used to women wearing various types of heels to parties.  Even Anastasiya, with all her Victorian hemlines, still loves wearing all the most fashionable heels.  Igor has also heard the stories about how she wore tango shoes while fleeing the Bolsheviks.  Perhaps after he gets to know Violetta a little better, he can ask if she avoids heels for some religious reason.

  1. I think decorating her feet with jewelry and stylish shoes is drawing too much attention to them. He’s bound to ask these questions sooner or later. I really love those shoes in the picture! Wish I could still get them! LOL


  2. I’m not too big a fan of heels myself. I can understand why she doesn’t wear them though, I’m guessing it makes walking for her much harder with her condition. I think this secret of hers is going to come out sooner rather than later.


  3. Fun post! There are, no questions asked, some gorgeous shoes being produced today, but nothing does it for me in the footwear department quite like mid-century versions. If only similar (or identical!) styles were still much, much easier to come by these days (and didn’t cost an arm and leg, if they were).
