Shoes--my whole kingdom for Shoes!

Well, maybe that's a little drastic, but I love shoes! not...let me rephrase that; if shoes where a man, I would have a revolving door at divorce court. As soon as I see a new pair, I would divorce my old pair and start down the aisle to blissful happiness with my new love; that is until a new pair came across my email from Saks 5th Avenue. Have you seen this little gem? At least three times a week, I get an email telling me of a new sale going on for the "must have shoes of the season".

Now don't they know they can't tell me that I "must have" some kind of shoe..because most of the time, I MUST HAVE THEM. Ugh...what is a girl to do?

Well let me tell you, I got some very disturbing news this week. I have to refrain from wearing heels higher than 3 inches for at least 30 days. Now, people; espeically women. I am NOT a whiner, but today I must whine.

I ONLY wear heels that are higher than 3 inches. Ok, it is because of a nasty little thing called a kidney infection that my heel wearing has to be curtailed. Something about the added pressure of the heel height in relation to my back which in turn causes stress on my kideny. Well who told my kidney to get sick, certainly not I; as I have been drinking WAY more than the allowed 8 glasses of water..., the way I look at it, if I only wear the heels to work, and then sit at my desk all day, and only get up to go to the microwave to heat up my lunch and then walk back out to my vehicle, technically I haven't WORN the heels all day, right?

So as I sit here, looking at my lonely 4 and 5 inches heels (and they are looking so sad that I have not chosen a pair of them to put on) I have the most compelling problem. I can avoid all sidewards glances, from the people who know about my little predicament, and simple wear some boring flat shoes (ok, dont throw stones at me, I'm just not a flat shoe wearer) OR I can simple, smile, pick out a modest pair of 4 inch heels and start my week off with a smile.

Either way, somehow I just know that the heel police will be lurking to catch me.


  1. I know your pain. I can only wear 3 inches or less now after my foot surgery. The shoes just call out to me and I hate that I can no longer answer....sigh

  2. You can just think of it as a 30 day vacation from your first love - the stilettos. I know you'll be thinking of them while you are slumming with those lesser shoes but you'll love the heels more later. After all, after makes the feet grow fonder... or something like that...

  3. Thaankfully after 30 days (or sooner), I will answer the call and put them on and ley let me just say this...IT'S ON!!!
