There's a common saying that goes something like this - "if you're not hurting, something's wrong", which many may associate with fashion. In many cases, I dress comfortably so I can't quite relate.
.. Except in one category. Shoes.
There are so many components that goes into finding the perfect pair of shoes that it's nearly impossible. First, you need to find the right size, and if you're shopping at places such as T.J. Maxx or Forever 21, that can be pretty difficult. So difficult that when you do find a great looking pair of shoes, but only find it in a smaller size, you're willing to cramp in your footsies in it just to make it work. Then, you have to 'break in' the shoes, and that comes with a hefty price.
That's basically what happened to these adorable floral shoes that were purchased at Forever 21. It was a size too small, but the clearance price was at $10 and it seemed too good to pass up. Except whenever I wear it now, I'm also sporting bandages on my Achilles heels. Stylish, right? I truly do hope that, though my footsies will have to squeeze just a little bit into the shoes, the shoes will start to break in by the next time I wear it or it might have just been a waste of a product, irregardless of the clearance price.
