I was proud of myself that I went to Sioux City shopping and did not buy one pair of shoes. Oh, I had some hot black heels in my cart at Gordman’s, but thought do I really want to spend that much for a pair of shoes that I will probably never wear? Even though they perfectly match a little black velvet dress hanging in my closet that I will probably never wear either. But I resisted.
Then I decided to run into Wal-mart to pick up a few things. Always have to make a sweep through the shoe aisles. They had all of their Earth Spirit Leather Sandals on clearance for $5 each!
Earth Spirit shoes are SO comfortable that I bought almost every style they had available in my size (pic of them below). Even if I only wear them infrequently, that was a heckuva buy! The shoes I’m wearing in the picture are actually George Brand and were $5 as well. I wore them to a party last night. Probably the last time I’ll get to wear open-toe shoes before the snow hits.
Man, I really hate that skinny pants are coming back into fashion! I prefer boot cut or wider with heels. If the teeny-boppers start safety pinning the jeans and rolling them up, I will really feel old. But it’s been 20 years, so time for the fad style to change again.
