What girl doesn’t like shoes? I like shoes. I just don’t like the impracticality of some shoes. For example, last week I wore a fabulous pair of T-strap sandals with a 5- maybe- 6 inch heel to work. I looked great, but after 8 hours I didn’t feel great. I didn’t know my daily task would have me on my feet all day sorting, organizing and packing jewelry and handbags into boxes. Whew, my dogs were barking! No amount of intense yoga or relaxing Epson salt baths could heal my scrunched toes, rubbed raw heels, or pulled muscles. Fortunately I did recover. It took a full week of morning stretches, ballet flats and Gladiator sandals to remedy my poor aching feet.
I know we fashionistas like to spout “beauty is pain/ pain is beauty.” But is it worth it? My grandmother lived by the same motto when she was much more spritely and I’ve seen her feet…it ain’t pretty.
So, unless I’m sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day, I don’t think my high inch heels will be making much of an appearance….well, at least not within the next week.
