My male readers might want to skip this post...it's about shopping.
This week I went to shopping for two nightmare items - bras and shoes. I know a lot of women don't like bra shopping, but most love shoe shopping. Not me. Mostly because I have a giant foot and can never find anything I like or that's all that comfortable.
A few days ago I bought two bras, two pairs of wide-legged pants, this dress/tunic (in linen, not cotton), and one pair of stretchy cropped pants. I decided to return the stretch ones and see what else I could find and took my mother to the mall with me for the yay or nay vote. I didn't find anything but she left with new jeans and a few cute tops.
She was also looking for shoes so we wandered over to the shoe department. They rarely have my size in department stores (other than Nordstrom) but I thought I'd take a look anyway.
When I talked to my friend Marlaina this morning, she told me to look at a brand called Vionics. I hadn't heard of them and filed the name away since I figured I'd have to search for them online. But then, lo and behold, there they were, right before my eyes. Not only did they have my size, but the shoes I tried on were a size 11, not my normal size 12. Elation! My mother got two pairs and I wound up getting four.
I got this style in black and tan, a pair of these in the sparkly black (love them!), and this pair by FitFlop. A MaryJane really isn't my style, but they were SO comfortable I wanted to crawl into them and take a nap. Next on my list is a Vionics loafer, in the brick orange color.
I'm so excited that I've now found two brands that I'm certain are going to be a staple for me. Shoes that are comfortable. And fit. I'm thrilled!
