Shoes Glorious Shoes!

DSW delights!
*sigh* Oh shoe shopping...it's the absolutely borst! What's that you ask? A combination of "best" and "worst". That's how I feel about the whole shoe shopping experience, especially when I'm looking for the right shoe to wear with an evening gown.  I get all excited when I go to a store and see all the sparkly stilettos thinking "oh this will be easy!" But then I start looking for my size and...that's when I get all bummed out!  I often find that cute, comfortable shoes (three words that actually form an oxymoron) are nearly impossible to find. I always end up seeing shoes that are much too small or much too big. I wear sizes 10 or 11, but lately I haven't been able to find the right shoe in either size usually because they're already snatched up since the women who wear these sizes know the struggle is real! 



So on my most recent trip I traveled up and down the aisle on the hunt for both the look I am going for and, of course, my size.  The latter soon took precedence so I didn't let myself fall in love with a shoe until I knew they had my size in stock. The sales associate offered to order and ship the shoes of my choice to my home if they didn't carry the size I needed in the store.  But I like to walk around in a pair of heels before buying them.  I have to give them the proper test: can I stand up and once I'm standing how long & far can I walk? 

I'm all for looking fabulous but I don't want to be the diva who falls down and tries to look good doing it! So I'm trying my best to find a shoe that's practical but looks absolutely gorgeous with my dress. The hunt continues tomorrow as I haven't found that perfect pair for this week's gala.  I saw some absolutely delicious looking foot candy while perusing the aisles of my local DSW store. (I'm a budget friendly bella donna!) But alas none were to be claimed during my visit. I'm still holding on to hope and trusting that my little beauties are out there waiting eagerly for me to find them and give them a new happy home. At least that's the prayer I'm going to say tonight!
