Today it’s rainy, cold and windy. A good day to shop, online
I love shoes. I love buying them and I love wearing them. Just last week as I hopped up on the examination table in my doctor’s office she said , “I like your shoes.” Navy patent leather Weejums.
Man, music to my ears. Because everyone knows that women dress for themselves and for other women, not for men. If we dressed for men, well, we would just be naked, wouldn’t we? My brother told me when I was in high school when I was fussing about my clothes that it didn’t matter because boys don’t care what you are wearing.
Still, I enjoy compliments from anyone especially when they notice my shoes. The thing is since I have gained weight and am no longer my lithe, petite self, I don’t like buying clothes and I don’t like the way I look in clothes. Not that I am advocating nudity. It’s just that your feet don’t gain weight and they always look good.
I have a pedicure every month so my toes and feet are always ready for sandals, open-toe shoes, mules, or sling backs. Joanne does the best manicures and pedicures; she works at renew.calm.
I buy most of my shoes at Nordstrom, online. I am a 9 Medium. Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, though I rarely need to return shoes. I don’t pay full price; I only shop the sales. In addition, I earn Nordstrom Notes on my Visa credit card [no airline miles for me] and use my Notes for my shoe and make-up purchases. So, they are basically free to me!
Right now I have an $80.00 Note that is burning a hole in my pocket. I spent some time this morning looking at shoes, online. To my dismay, and this is happening more frequently, I did not find anything I was heads over heels about. Sorry for the pun.
I do not like gladiator shoes and this trend seems to be going on forever. We are not walking for miles in the desert sands in the Roman Empire, are we?
I do not like metallic~anything. Although I have read that metallic is out, I still see a lot of it. Studs~really? Bows and ruffles on shoes? Embellishments~no way!
So let me show you what I came across today.
Shoes that look like you stepped on an animal and still have the poor thing stuck to your foot.
Shoes that have bows.
A pair of shoes with ruffles.
Shoes that have embellishments.
A pair of shoes for the woman who always wanted to be an architect.
Shoes that you could not possible walk in and stay upright.
Shoes that say “happy hooker”.
Shoes that say “Don’t take me seriously.”
Shoes that are down right stupid.
And a pair that says, to me, “WTF?”
So, tell me what you think when you go shoe shopping. What is your experience? Pictures, please.
