ttF Fashion Diary: See Spot Work

ttF Fashion Staples Series January 5ttF Fashion Staples Series: See Spot Work
Today was my first day back in the office in 2010. So I wanted something colorful to kick off the year. I bought this dotted blouse at an E! wardrobe sale and it’s one of my go-to tops when I’m having a fat day. The baby doll style worked well to hide my holiday food and wine bloat.

The shoes, however, were not so helpful.

I ordered these pumps for about $10 after Christmas. They’re not a soft suede like my Steve Maddens but look great from far away. Everything was fine until I walked down to the courtyard with a friend to grab some lunch. Or should I say wobbled. The pain was unbearable! I’m hoping to fix the squished toes problem with a shoe pad to prevent my foot from sliding. If not, at least the heels were a steal.

ThinkThruFashion Tip:
Always have a pair of flats on hand the first time you wear a new pair of heels. I changed into my trusty London Soles when I returned to my desk. The outfit wasn’t as cute but my feet were beyond grateful.

    Too bad those pumps are so painful – they are utterly gorgeous!

    I love the pattern on that blouse, and those heels are gorgeous. It’s a shame that they’re so uncomfortable.

    Oooh those shoes are sooo beautiful. I know they’re probably not that comfortable but on the plus side if your feet do bleed they will match your shoes!
