A Letter To My Shoes


Dear Gorgeous Sparkly Flats,

Not cool. You are a wolf in sheeps clothing. You disguised yourself as an adorable flat pair of foot candy and you are actually a torture device. I should have known better. Every time I wear you my feet end up hurting, but it's so hard to choose my black sensible flats when you're sitting next to them screaming, "Pick me! Pick me! I'll elevate your outfit. Everybody will tell you how cute I am." Most days I can resist, but for some reason you had me convinced that today would be different. Well, it wasn't different. It was WORSE. By the time I had my coffee my heels were all red and by lunch time I was limping, LIMPING! So, this is goodbye gorgeous sparkly flats. Until I find a magical cobbler who can make you comfortable, I'm putting you back on the shelf and not your regular shelf. No more of the closet light hitting you just right so your sparkles shine and I'm fooled again, you're going in on the top shelf where you'll be purely for decoration. It's been (painfully) real.

XOXO
Heather

Oh, I know what you mean! I got this gorgeous pair of leopard heels and was DYING from the worst blister in history midday. You should look into some blister-block stuff because those are just too cute to retire so soon! Check the band-aid aisle!

oh that really stinks! I'm in the process of getting some boots fixed at a cobbler. If he's magical I'll definitely let you know.

noooo.... how can they be so gorgeous and so hurtful? Try band-aid brand "blister" band-aids. They work WONDERS and don't slip and move! Show those flats who is boss!

This is an absolutely adorable and well told post.

You're right, if I had these flats, I would wear them too, however, it's never fun walking around in pain.

Just wear them around the house :-))
