Shoes - A Love/Hate Relationship!

Being a girl, it is a given that I must love shoes, and I do. As a matter of fact, the only shopping that I enjoy is shoe shopping. (I know I'm weird, but trying on clothes is just yuck and if I don't have money, window shopping is depressing!!) Anyway, I love the current shoe fashions. Pointy toes, high heels, chunk heels, strappy sandals, flops. Whatever they are, give me a pair.
I found a pair of shoes the other day, that I absolutely love. A pair of brown boot type shoes to go with jeans and stuff. I've needed a pair for a while because my previous pair of brown boots were worn out, plus I can't find one of them, so of course I could never wear them.
My new boots were are just as cute as my old boots (pretty much the same style) so I was very happy to find them. And they looked very cushy and comfortable.
Okay, looked is the operative word. They looked comfortable. See, these shoes that I LOVE, obviously hate me. Well, not the right shoe, just the left shoe. See, the left shoe has worn a blister on the back of my heel. I have to wear a bandaid in order to wear the shoe. (Unless I want to walk around with a limp all day. Not that I have anything against people with limps, but I don't have one, so I don't want to have to walk around with one!)
I was very disappointed. I feel like Monica on Friends when she was determined to wear her new boots just because the were cute even though they killed her feet!
How about you? Have you ever bought anything that you absolutely loved only to find that it didn't love you back?

Well, lets see, EVERY swimsuit in the world! Okay, the suit may be just fine. I would have to say it is the body being squeezed into the suit that needs improvement.

I can hardly believe that I thought I was fat as a teen. I was definitely not skinny, but neither was I fat, looking back. Ah to be that kind of "fat" again. ;)
