Wouldn't Waste a Dime on Luxurious "Sexy" Uncomfortable Shoes

I love looking good. I love men and women who look good: who take their time to dress up. They come out looking clean, organized, and draw enough attention. (Too much attention is just too much.) During an affinity group meeting at work, I was made to stand up and speak for 1 minute about "what I spend the most money on" (on the fly). I'm not much of a spender, but within a few seconds, I said "Shoes, I guess." That's when the shoes are on sale. That particular day, I was wearing a high-heeled pair of floral shoes I had purchased from the Nine West website a few months before. Everyone in the room nodded, saying shoes woulda been their guess as well. Oh well!

Anyways, I like designer clothing and outfit. Over time, I have learned to invest in quality and not cheap. This is not to say that quality equals high price tag. Not at all. Those who shop right know that you can get designer items and brand names for a fraction of the price when you, say purchase past-season items etc. So, quality does not have to mean spending a lot of money.

I'll be frank with you, I purchase mid-designer shoes and not high-designer shoes (except for a few here and there). What do I mean? I wear Nine West, BCBG Max Azria, Bebe: the affordable, popular brand names. I don't do the Jimmy Choos or Louboutins. Not that I can't afford them, but when I ask my Choo or CL-wearing gal friends how their designer shoes treat them, they all say the same thing. "Girl, it's not about the comfort. It's how it looks."

You have GOT to be kidding me. Really? I should end up with crow's feet over a few hours of excruciating pain PLUS loads of money leaving my bank account? Whoever said that's the smart idea. I'm not trying to down anyone. After all, I am talking about some of my friends (and myself occasionally). BUT I will never call any pair of shoes quality except it looks good (makes the rest of my outfit "WOW"), feels good and will last a long time. I have found that Nine West shoes meet my needs for work, casual outings and from time to time, outing shoes. BCBGs' are not always the most comfortable. Enzo Angiolini shoes IF you can find them for a decent price are pretty good as well. Same with DVF shoes if you get lucky.

But, I'd sign up for comfortable + sexy WAY before I fall in line for very expensive + sexy, in that order. Go, breathing shoes!!! That being said, I am usually more comfortable in my high heels than in flats. Guess I need to find me some good flats like Tod's or something...
