I haven't bought decent shoes in years. I have all kinds of sandals for summer, but they're not that comfortable. And last year I wore a lot of flip flops, even cute ones, but they started aggravating my Achilles' tendon. The doctor said I needed a little bit of a heel.
So today, while I'm on a speaking road trip and have nothing to do during the day, I went shoe shopping.
I couldn't find anything in Sears, so I scoured all the other stores in the mall. i was trying to find some red peep toes like Stacey's always saying on What Not to Wear, but I couldn't find ones I liked.
Then I found the clearance section in Sears. And I cleared them out. It was heavenly!
I now feel like I'll look a little more sophisticated when I speak or just when I go out. I was getting really sick of my uncomfortable heels.
I also realized that I've probably been wearing the wrong size of shoe. I always thought I was a 7, but after trying on all kinds of shoes I realize I'm closer to a 6 1/2, especially when I don't wear socks.
It reminds me of when I went bra shopping last year. I've always thought of myself as an A cup. When I was nursing I actually got up to a C for a while and it was amazing. I should have taken photographs just to remind myself what I used to look like :). But I didn't.
Anyway, I went to one of those fancy lingerie stores and had an actual fitting, and I'm really a B cup as long as I wear a smaller band size! And the new bras make me look great. So my bust is bigger and my feet are smaller and I look chic. I am one happy woman.
