I'm really trying to work with taking pictures in different types of light, its challenging and sometimes it looks a little off but I think I'm slowly getting a feel for it. Slowly. I'll leave it at that.
I'll you what, I'll never buy uncomfortable cheapy-cheap shoes again. I bought this pair of Seychelles and hot diggity dog, they fit like they were made for me. This is such a big deal, I've got large, wide feet and I can't tell you how many times I've gotten blisters or horrible, bloody rub marks from ill-fitting Payless shoes. So not pretty but not with these babies, they have to be the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn aside from my boots. I wear them all day long and they just fit perfectly, no rubbing, no scrunching up my toes to hold the shoe on because a larger size is the only thing that I can get my wide foot into, it's just a world of difference.
I've been saving my consignment credits for the past three months and I cashed out at the beginning of the month. I'm trying not to spend "our" money for clothes since we're saving for a move so my budget right now depends on what I can get from either selling older clothes on consignment or though ebay. I did sell a little bit on ebay as well last month , some clothes, few items of older jewelry and with the money I got a few pairs of Seychelles that were on major sales because dude, it's that hard to find shoes that really do fit! (Nothing against Payless at all, their shoes just don't seem to fit my foot type very well.) It's kind of odd, I never have this problem with boots, they always seem plenty wide enough in the foot area.
My foot woes and my joy of finding shoes that really fit, I can't really think of anything else to talk about. I'm like that older lady in your church or on the bus that has to plod right down next to you and goes on and on about her medical plights and the state of her bunions. Which I get, having bunions blows.
