After I mentioned that I finally had shoes for the Oscars, I received this tweet from one of my followers, Ronnie:
I responded with, "Height, comfort, fashion. In that order."
I wish it were easy to just select any old random shoe, but this year, my shoes count. I am showing a lot of leg in my dress and you are going to see my shoes. However, I've always worn broken-in shoes to the big day and this year, I am wearing brand new shoes with a little trepidation. I don't want blisters! I know my feet will hurt after a long day, but blisters are the worst.
I will be in those shoes from 10am PT until I can slip them off my feet when I am backstage in the press room. So, wish me well and tell the shoe gods to be good to me.
I also have to say that it was the first pair of shoes I have bought in a store in ages. I am a huge online shopper, so it was unusual to be in a mall on a Monday night trying on shoes. As a part of the #MySmarterCommerce campaign with IBM, I felt a little old school being in a store instead of behind a keyboard for that purchase.
Let's take a sneak peek at my shoes for Sunday. May I present...Stuart Weitzman's Gloso shoe. While I would like to call these an "investment shoe," I will say I bought my first pair of Weitzman's in 2007 and I haven't regretted a second of that purchase. While they are not a shoe I wear every day, they have served me well on the red carpet. In fact, you can see the shoe here and here. I am not showing you the dress until Sunday, but there is a little glimpse of the dress in yesterday's post if you are curious.
So, what do you think of the shoes? Give me your honest opinion in the comments below.
