So today I went shoe shopping. I have to find a pair of silver shoes for the two (yes two) weddings I'm in the week of September 4-11. More about this later...Luckily, my two best friends decided on silver shoes to go with the navy and red dresses I have to wear. So only one pair of shoes needs to be found. (Although there are like a million cute navy shoes out this season...)

My obvious issue is that I have to find shoes that are comfortable enough to wear all day long, without me wanting to kill myself - or without requiring a day's rest to recover from (which I'll probably already need anyways). I also want CUTE shoes.

I was never much of a shoe person, until I started working as a professor, which required business professional attire. When I started working, I had a pair of chunky black shoes, and brown penny-loafers. Plus sneakers and flip-flops. However, eventually, I discovered a love of shoes. I love red shoes, I have a really cute pair of purple flats that I try to wear as often as possible, and I now have quite a few black shoes, one for every occasion. Now, this love started about a year, year and a half, before I was diagnosed with RA. I have all these cute shoes - and can really only wear the flats. Unless it's a good day, and I might be able to pull off my kitten heels

So, I am now picky about what shoes I want to wear, and am also limited by what I can actually wear...the hunt began today at DSW. And I found so many cute shoes, but they all had too high a heel. *sad face*
The hunt shall continue tomorrow.


  1. I hope your shoe hunt has resulted in success!! As you can probably tell from my hundredy comments, I've really been enjoying your blog. I'd like to add it to the list of resources on my blog - and write a post about it if it is ok with you. Let me know, ok? Best of luck with wedding season!! ~;o)

  2. That would be awesome! I just checked my email to see an onslaught of comments from you. And all of them were great! To be honest, yours was the first blog I came across and I read it from beginning to end. It was fascinating to follow your story and to know there were others out there, dealing with the same things.

    BTW - I checked for days waiting for your wedding post! What beautiful pictures (one of my weaknesses in life is looking at wedding photos)! And the shoe hunt was successful, I got a cute pair of shoes for the weddings, as well as a cute pair of work shoes!
