I did go back to get those shoes, but they were gone. Somebody else is stepping out in my shoes. *sigh* I tripped over my own practicality.
But browsing, I found a pair of black flats. I found a pair of navy blue pumps. Good sensible colors that match with anything. I looked at a pair of apple green mules, pointy toed. Who buys shoes like that? Why, could you even keep a pair of shoes like that on your feet?
Turns out that I buy shoes like that. And I've been walking around the house in them, and they stay on my feet just fine.
