Dr's Orders

Remember how that silly doctor told me I had to wear orthopedic shoes, the kind that look like these:

This is what came up when I typed in Google- fashionable woman's orthopedic shoes...I swear to all that is HOLY- some nut thinks these are HIGH FASHION, well tie me up and call me Sarah Jessica Parker, I don't think so.

So step 2 to satisfy my curiosity- was to type in to Google- woman's orthopedic shoes (let's leave fashion out of the equation) Look what came up-

O.K. I get where they are talking fashion...

Saturday was my son's High School graduation, this day is meant for CELEBRATION (even more so for the parents) So we had a nice dinner, with yummy pomegranate martini's. Then went home, joined by an old friend in town, and had some very, very good sipping Tequila (lots o' Tequila) and then we went out. What to wear, what to wear....Orthopedic shoes?

I think NOT- these are the babies I pulled out of my closet, I had a hard time buckling them and all, due to all the tequila consumed, but I got them on my piggies and away we went.

As long as there is alcohol to be consumed, I will NOT be wearing UGLY shoes out on a Saturday night...I must confess there was much crying, moaning and groaning, as well as rubbing of the tootsies on Sunday.

The DOCTOR can suck it- suck my BIG FAT TOE!


  1. Ohhh noooo to the second shoe pic. That's tragedy in shoe form. LOVE the sandals though! I am in awe of anyone who can wear heels that high and not end up in traction. I'm 5'10, heel wearing was never on my priority list. I wear heels and I'm 6 feet! Duuude.

    Oh, and congrats to your chillun' for gradumifying! He's a cutie, too! Must be the good mama genes. :)

    I am supposed to wear orthotics (sp?) due to my messed up walking...kinda glad I can avoid the orthopedic shoes now! May the fashion gods be with you.


  2. I can't wear shoes anymore (long story) but one perk of being a wheelchair user is that no one points and laughs (or bans you from restaurants) if you go without shoes all-together.

    And "Amen!" to sucking it to the Dr! lol!

  3. I LOVE those shoes! I get horrible foot pain if I wear high heels (as a result of cramming my foot into pointy stilettos all through college).

    I'm on my feet all day long, so I wear comfortable/cute flats to work, but I still cannot resist a pair of hott shoes!

  4. I'm with you- sick, sick, sick of flats!


I love you Darling, really! Thank you!
