Note to my readers: This post has absolutely nothing to do with healthy eating or dangerous chemicals. Just a little summer fun…
In between my two episodes of imbalance, I went shoe shopping.
I know what you’re thinking…but wait. You’ll either totally love this or think I have completely flipped my lid. If you don’t already. Anyhoo…
I managed to escape to DSW one day, armed with my sling (no pun intended) and my Mothers’ Day giftcard. The whole trip took me two and a half hours. ‘Cause that’s how I shop with only one free arm. I managed to find a rockin’ pair of desperately needed black heels, and some adorable strappy sandals, both at full price. I hate paying full price for anything, but these were totally worth it.
Also totally worth it was the clearance section. It was in the clearance aisle that I found them: the most unreasonable, memorable, outfit-specific, deadly shoes I have ever entertained the notion of buying.
“Deadly” because, as of late, I haven’t been the most balanced chick. When Victoria saw them come out of the bag, her eyes grew oh-so-wide and she exclaimed, “MAMA!!!!! Are you SURRRRRE you can wear those?”
I confessed that I wasn’t entirely sure.
But they were on CLEEEEEEEARANCE!!!
Completely taken with my uncharacteristically bold purchase, Vic has been seen clomping through the kitchen in these shoes more than once. I dunno…maybe I allow that because somewhere in the back of my mind there exists the remote possibility that this may be the only way they will ever get worn.
So…whatcha think? Do I dare???
(Update since the writing of this post: I decided to wear them today. It’s lunchtime and I am so far surviving. But, just to be on the safe side, say a prayer that I don’t break my leg! Thanks!!!)
