Comfort and Pain.

mmkslide.jpgOne of the best parts of my brother’s wedding was that my best friend, Emily, flew in from grad school to visit. She is like comfort and stability for me during busy times so it was wonderful to have her here. And of course we got to throw in a little shopping therapy to blow off some steam in the midst of all the family activities! We made a quick stop at DSW one day to see if they had any good bargains and I was ecstatic to find a pair of Michael by Michael Kors slides marked down to half off in my size. They are so cute with a wooden heel, black leather straps and gold ring detail. I couldn’t find an exact picture on the web but the pic to the left is similar, just with a criss cross strap and sexier than those. I snapped them right up and took them home! The day after Emily left, I went to the nearby Chandler Fashion Center (again!) to meet up with some relatives from out of town, wearing my cute new slides. BAD IDEA! Within an hour, the strap was cutting into the one side of my foot and the gold ring was digging into the other side. I was wincing in pain but trying to look stylish while doing so! But then I couldn’t take it any more and had to leave early to save my poor feet. I was horrified when I took them off to see my injuries and I now have scabs on each side of my feet to remind me of my pain. Ugh, I guess they are a pair of shoes reserved only for light walking situations, because there is no way I will ever suffer that much for fashion again!

    I hate when this happens. I’ve even overestimated how much I’d be able to walk in ballet flats–of course, this was touring a city I’d never been to so we walked all. day. I was in so much pain by the end of it. It’s too bad I hate sneakers so much.

    Micheal Kors does make some nice fashions, but I stick to his jeans, mostly. I have some white denim shorts and jeans by Kors. That’s the problem with shoes: they have to be comfortable, no matter what the name is on the label.
