Why I Rarely Get Dressed Up

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Painful shoes!!

Today I wore a dress to work. I wish that I had thought to take a photo. Oh well!
I looked good in the dress but I had two big problems, 1) where to attach my fitbit; 2) what shoes to wear.

Let me says that I am one of those people that does care about shoes or pocketbooks. I know that there are many women who are cringing now but that's the truth.
I love to look at all the cute shoes but not wear them because they all hurt my teeth.
This morning while I was contemplating wearing a dress I started rummaging through my closet and found 2 possible candidates. One had a pointed toe (why did I bought them I'm not sure) and the other had a less pointed toe. Put on the second pair and they seemed fine. Well, they weren't.

I was uncomfortable for most of the day. If I could have walked around in my bare feet, I would have. I did have another pair of shoes in my desk that were less uncomfortable but not as stylish that I put on towards the end of the day.

Drove home barefooted.


Had a good workout at the gym and ate okay today. Just felt kind of lethargic all day. Hopefully this will pass with a good night sleep.

    I have such a wide foot that it is difficult to find cute shoes that are comfortable. So I often wear sandals a lot too or wide width office shoes. The only times I wear heels is when going somewhere for two hours or less. Otherwise I am doomed.

    Hope your feet are better by the time you read this.

    I can identify with the shoe issue for sure. I LOVE cute shoes; but, mostly think mine are not so cute these days. It is hard for me to find comfy ones and seems I just want to wear my good walking shoes all the time. They just don't go very well with a dress. :)

    I wear my sandals alot. I haven't worn heals in ... actually I can't remember, it's been a long while. I hope your feet will be feeling better soon!

    I'm the same. I have no dressy shoes, they hurt my back. Most of the time I wear tied athletic shoes, usually crosstrainers or walking shoes. Any other type of shoe causes me severe back pain.

    Hope your feet feel better today.

    Oh, I hear ya. Heels are the worst. The last time I wore heels, I said "never again."

    My fitbit is attached to my bra. emoticon

    Ouch! Always have two pairs (one flat for long walks and commute) and one for the office. **courtesy tip of a shoe addict**

    I rarely have to wear dressy shoes and they are never high heels. I have flat feet and the pain of heels is not worthwhile. I wear dressy flats with a strap to hold them on in a big enough size to be comfortable. About the only time I wear them is to church or to a dance. I love to be comfortable! At my age, I can get away with almost anything!!!!!!!

    I hate dress heels, each year I hate them more. I just can't wear them for any length of time, and wear them as seldom as I can get away with doing so. Hopefully a good nights rest will make the tootsies feel much better in the morning. I would have driven home bare footed too.

    I never wear dress shoes (very rare occasions). Even if I wear a dress to work, I have on flats or sneakers, still...(yeah, I can feel you cringing, hehehe). I just figure nobody wants to pick me up off the ground.
    Have a great night.

    I understand about the heels, until 7 years ago I could wear them. Soak your feet tonight ;-)
