Must beautiful shoes be so painful?

Farylrobin ElaineI purchased a ridiculously discounted pair of Farlyrobin peeptoe pumps from Clarabella’s closing sale over the weekend ($50 from $250). With a hidden platform and retro styling, the combination of black suede, embossed leather, smooth leather and snakeskin make these heels breathtaking in that rockabilly pinup kind of way.

I bought a half size up because my usual size was uncomfortably tight, and even so, halfway through my half-mile walk to work, I found myself with a painful blister on my heel. Upon limping to work, I procured three band-aids and I’m muscling through.

Oh, vanity.
