My feet hurt now!
And this post was born the moment I started to walk to the Coldplay concert Sunday night and had to turn back after only 1/2 block because my feet were already in such agony.
Remember these pretty Arche shoes? Okay - maybe you can't see them, but I bought them a few years ago for a god-awful price. They are "French Walking Shoes". I like to call them "Shoes that Marie Antoinette should have taken with her to the guillotine.."
|God - I look like someone who just jumped the boat in the 17th century! Truly, I was cold, it was starting to rain and my feet hurt... Either than or I am ready for the casting call for Les Miserables....|
Pale Grey. Kid leather. Comfort personified!
And then I saw these little gold beauties:
I wore them to work today. My feet did not hurt once and I received many compliments (now I must temper this with the truth - most people where I work do not wear nice shoes, so really, you kind of have to take that with a grain of salt).
I do not know if you will like these shoes. I love them. When I got to Paris in a few weeks I will find the fall collection. My feet are happiness personified.
Oh yes, I also bought a pair of party shoes in Maine from Nine West to replace my high heeled ones that no longer work:
Less than 3" and I could stand in them. I feigned cocktail party banter with the sales clerk, who was remarkably unimpressed...
I feel that these shoes pass the elegant test, but i am open to comments!
As for how I dressed today..
J Crew 1035 Fine Cotton Blazer in Beechwood, Esprit black sheath dress, new glamorous sensible shoes...
My feet still hurt some. I recognize the road to recovery will be long and interrupted by completely nonsensical shoe purchases. But I am trying!
And Dani - I could not find a Chie Mihara in Boston - they are like a holy grail to me now!
