For the love of SHOES!

Hello bloggies! Happy Tuesday to you!  Tonight kids, I've got shoes on my mind.  That's right. Zapatos which means "shoes" in Spanish. Let's begin.  So a few weeks ago I bought THE cutest shoes ever!  They are dark red, pointy shoes with a 4 inch heel.  Now, before all you ladies start laughing at the 4 inches, let me say that I'm only 4'11, and not very coordinated, so for me to wear anything higher than a 3 to 4 inch heel would be a HUGE mistake and cause havoc on my person or (gasp!) someone else.  Trust me on this.  Alright, so back to the shoes.  I don't know what it is about a new pair of shoes but this morning when I was walking to work, I felt and looked like a million bucks. I was powerful, I was sexy and I was workin the shoes!  Plus, red always makes me feel sexy. By mid-morning however, not so much.  I had suddenly lost "the sexy" and found instead, the, "Ouchie! What the heck was I thinking!?"  Yep.  My tootsies were in pain.  Yes I knew the shoes were a teeny, weenie bit "uncomfortable" when I tried them on initially. But I could not, would not, and did not pass up the opportunity to purchase such awesome shoes! They were on sale dammit! More importantly, they were so cute!  Ladies, help me out here.  Am I right? Women tend to endure pain all for the sake of THE SHOES.  Let's face it, more times than not, the shoes make or break the outfit.  I'd rather look good and suffer through foot pain than look bad.  Makes sense?  Besides, what's a little blister or five two among us gals?  It's not childbirth for crying out loud!

I think you are right. Shoes make the outfit. Yep, it is worth some pain. Not horrible torture pain, but some pain. I love red too.

I would have bought them, worn them and slipped a pair of ol faithfulls and a box of bandaids in my bag. Lost count of the number of times I have finished an outing in bare feet lol

Zapatos is one of the Spanish words I have never forgotten.

Ooooh, I do love me some shoes! And yes, will absolutely give up some comfort to get the right look. The shoes absolutely make a difference.
I will tend to break them in at home and then plan accordingly. And the red had to be irresistible!

as much as I hate to admit it, we as women are all so very willing to torture ourselves in the name of shoes.

I have a super sexy pair of golden sparkly stilettos (and 3 days of numb toes) to prove it.

I have learned that it IS possible to have sexy shoes and (some) comfort also, however you have to be willing to A) be somewhat flexible in your choices of footwear, and B) be willing to pay for it.

And that's just the way it is.

Shoes do make the outfit. Lucky for me (or not, depending on what mood I'm in), I'm 5'10," and heels make me look like a giant. So flats it is, but they're not nearly as cute!

that's why I stick to sneakers. :D

Yvonne said...

MS- Thanks for the follow! Ha! Flats are cute too, but I have to have that "lift" :)

LDML- Believe me, I do too sometimes!

Cinderita said...

YVONNE! there's still time. your shoes want to be photographed. i bet you they do.

Kelley said...

I hear you about those shoes! I would be miserable at the end of the day, but happy I rocked them, I sure. I bet you looked hot! Also, so glad you don't have writer's block anymore. :)

Yvonne said...

Kelley- I'm so glad we're all in agreement on this! haha! I'm glad I don't have it anymore either. It's annoying!
