UM…OK! Twist my arm, why don’t ya, and force me against my shoe-loving will to try on this pair of $69.95 Bare Traps Saydie Wedge Booties!
I give up. I’ll do it. 🙂
Did I mention that I finally found a mommy’s group to meet with here in Novato? Yup, thank you, interwebz! I found them online last week, just in time to attend their latest monthly get-together. It was at my local
“safe place” (LOL!) DSW, directly inside the store. There were moms, noms, drinks, chit-chat and — WOOT-WOOT! — the store even gave the members of the group a 20% discount on everything.
So I got to talk to some new moms and a couple of pregnant women, too. It felt good to have some in-person pregnant interaction.
Of course, while I there I also picked up this pair of boots…
Yes, instead of buying something practical, like a nursing bra, I buy shoes. 😬 In my defense, though, the label said they’re “Like a spa for your feet!”
And I’ve really needed something like that.
My feet have been sore and swollen lately, and I’ve gone up half a shoe size. By the end of the day, they feel massive! Like two extra long, extra chubby flippers attached to my ankles.
These Saydie Booties by Bear Traps are my new favorite feet-related things in the whole wide world. They look like flats from afar, but there’s a hidden 1-1/2″ heel, which is great if you need a little extra arch support (like moi). Bear Traps also gave them a plush fabric liner, so they’re super soft and warm.
I wore them around town last weekend, and they were comfy right out of the box. No need to break them in.
If you’re interested, they also come in black, as well as dark grayish brown, and all three are available online.
While I was at DSW, since I was already there, I also grabbed this six-pack of Katie and Kelly socks ($11). I fear for their safety, because I live with a sock monster that always hides my socks…
On the scale of sock awesomeness…eh, they’re OK. They’re kind of thin and inconsistent. One or two of the pairs are tighter than the others, so I won’t be heartbroken when the sock monster eats them for dinner.
Have you bumped into any cute shoes lately? Any bad-@ss boot sightings I should know about? This crazy shoe lady needs to know. 🙂
