Yesterday I was sitting at the beauty salon and looking at myself in the mirror for almost two hours. (The beauty salon is about the only place where it is permissible to look at yourself for that long.) Something just didn't seem right. I figured it out right about when the appointment ended. It was my shoes.
I am a walking contradiction. Why do I spend $100 on my hair and wear tailored jeans that I buy from Saks (okay, the Saks outlet), yet I haven't changed my tennis shoes for over six years? I mean, I wear my tennis shoes almost every single day. This is ridiculous.
I still remember the day I bought these shoes. It was at Nordstroms in Provo. I couldn't believe that I spent $60 on shoes. Hey, it looks like I got my money's worth!
The problem is two-fold. I really like my shoes, yet they are impossible to find. I'm like an addict to my old tennis shoes. The only way I am going to be able to quit them is by throwing them away and forcing myself to buy a new pair of shoes.
So, it's 2010, and I haven't bought a new pair since 2004. What do stay at home moms wear while they are out running errands nowadays? Someone please enlighten me. I am clueless when it comes to shoe shopping and I want to order some new ones this week.
