“NEVAH!” you scream! Right?? *sighs* Well, I am in the midst of “Not Fun Shopping”…looking for “comfortable shoes” *gasps* for our big vacation (TONS of walking rather than our usual beach-pool-booze-sloth program). So my adorable strappy-platform-cork-wedges will not cut it. *curses*
Don’t try to suggest “cute flats” to me. Oxymoron — Cute and flats. Not for this stumpy legged, stout calved girl. Must have a bit of a heel. Perhaps a wedge? We’re going somewhere where you sort of need to be “stylish” and yet “appropriate” (which is always a challenge for me, kwim?! haha)
When I think “comfortable shoes” I always get an image from summers at my Grandmother’s house. Her next door neighbor always wore open toed sandals with thick nude pantyhose (probably knee-highs *shudders*) AND, it gets worse. Really. She didn’t shave her legs so there was always thick leg hair sticking out of her pantyhose. I remember always staring at it in fascinated horror. Tried to find fun images for ya:
Anyway, all this is not helping me find shoes. God help me, I even found myself in Aerosoles today. Shoes, forgive me! (say in a “saints, preserve us” old Irish lady way) I went to Clarks too. *shudders* and The Walking Shoe Company…Bless their fug-ass shoed hearts, they do try to make them cute. Yet they fail, every time.
