I learned some valuable lessons from my shoes today.
I have this pair of sassy shoes. They are strappy, they are high, and they are the only pair that keeps my "long" jeans from rubbing on the ground. When I first bought them they fit great, perfectly, and they were oh so comfortable they way they were. Thing is, being leather straps and all, they stretched out.
This is a problem.
There are no buckles, no elastic, nothing to adjust. You slide your foot in and that's it, except now my foot slides around a bit in the shoe, resulting in the following observations of life:
Just because you are on stable ground, doesn't mean you are stable.
Slow down, and walk like a lady.
It only takes a tiny step the wrong direction to take you down a slippery slope.
You may think no one saw you stumble, but you're wrong, someone always does.
And finally, an obvious one:
Strappy sassy shoes are not the friend of toes when it's 36 degrees outside.
