Did you know…

Woman with the largest feet in the world   ~by Sajid Wahid  Apr 20, 2010

BEIJING: Shen Xiaojing was the woman with the largest feet in the world, she has the world longest foot in the world. Shen Xiaojing hopes that she could enter the Guinness Book of records for her Largest Feet.

 Shen Xiaojing, 21, lives in Nong’an County. When she was born, her feet were unusually large. Her right foot is 32 centimetres long and 12 centimetres wide; her left foot is 30 centimetres long and 11 centimetres wide. The big toe of her right foot is as large as a baby’s foot of a baby at 7.5 centimetres long and 4.5 centimetres; her second toe is 9 centimetres long and 3.5 centimetres wide.

 What is intriguing is that the big toe of her left foot is completely normal, while the other toes are unusually large. For 21 years, all her shoes were made by her mother. Shen Xiaojing is now 170 centimetres tall and has reached the age to marry. However, most young men have been frightened away by her giant feet. Shen has two wishes: to see the world and to get into the Guinness Book of Records.

32cm is 12.6 inches…I believe that’s a U.S. shoe size of 13 or 14?

I found this story quite sad…I doubt her life is anything but normal.  I hope her wishes do come true, and that she’ll find THE man who would love & marry her in-spite of her large feet.  So she won’t be able to wear high heels…life could be worse!

  1. Love that linen blazer by RL! I’m on the look out for a white blazer.. might need to check that out. Also like the tee. The color is so pretty. It looks like a pastel lime.. but I’m not sure.

    Your blog is so fun. I’m excited to connect with so many amazing 50 (plus.. I’m 52) women. Check out my vanity post if you get a chance.

    • Oh, I love RL jackets/blazers! Have’m in variety of colors and shapes…the best!
      Hey, we maybe 50 something, but life ain’t over yet! 😉
      I’ll definitely check it out!

  2. Your dress looks fabulous on you! I love every details of your outfit.

    In this world full of hatred and discrimination, I understand the situation of Shen Xiaojing. Just hoping she finds her true love in near the future. 🙂

  3. I think it’s pretty safe to say that you are one of the most stylish women I’ve ever seen. I love all of your looks. You really nail it every time. Some people are just born with it. I think you are one of them.

    • Hi Laura!
      The bag is actually silver metallic. It’s a very versatile color in my opinion. Goes with pretty much anything, and it’s big enough for all my junk!
      And, thank you from hubby & me! ❤

  4. so stylish! i’m loving the mint & pink together. it’s really understated and very beautiful.
    thank you so much for stopping by my blog; it’s great to meet you!

  5. I swear you are lying to us about your age…the college aged kids…all of it. Because you can’t be more than 30. This look is fantastic on you.

  6. Lovely combination, Ma’am !
    Though I disagree with what others have to say about the lady with large feet.
    It’s a defect she has to live with for her whole life now.
    Atleast she has the balls to enter her name in the Guinness !
    Nevermind, To each his own.
    You rock such outfits ! 😀

  7. I want the shoes!!! T’s are my summer look, with skirts and everything. Love mint and pink, so girly! I am so thankful for my feet. Aww that kitty!!! Kitties and puppies can get away with the largest of paws…errr, feet. Now…about those shoes……..lol.

  8. you rock the simplest outfits – this is tesament to your style (and that you’re gorgeous!). if i wear a t-shirt and jeans? i look like i just walked out of the garage to check the mail… you always make it look organized and together, even when casual! love it!

    • Daisyfae,
      You make my day! Thank you!
      Believe me, I can look scary…and, I wear hubby’s big t-shirts and flip flops all the time!
      I may post a few pics of my sloppy self one day. 🙂

  9. nice muted look, very subtly chic, mint green is my favorite color now! I like the clean minimal accessorizing too, very stylish and elegant. The lady’s story is so sad, I think she must have difficulty walking and standing.

    • Hi Mongs!
      Thank you for your sweet comment.
      Yes, I think her life is anything but normal. I hope it won’t stop her from having a loving family of her own someday.

  10. Beautiful pastel outfit, back to the youth proposals, very well. A balanced, as always, now a charming casual touch. And do not miss the crinkle in the waist, Jeannie brand. Today you look gorgeous.

  11. Classic and beautiful as always! I like the button detail on the jacket. You seem to always find clothes that have that extra something special.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
