Day 498 - Irregular Choice Special #25

Shoes: Black 'So-Yeon Sarah' London College of Fashion and Irregular Choice

Ok, so first of all these totally weren't going to be the shoes I wore today, but unfortunately it's been raining on and off and although I was all dressed, I didn't fancy going out in it. Which gave me the opportunity to wear a pair I haven't been able to wear outside yet. You may recall it was a rather big decision for me to purchase these shoes, I would love to say I have no regrets and initially I didn't, but now I have to be completely honest, because I always am here. I was sent the wrong colour of one of the attachments, no major biggy although the first time I unclipped it from the card it came on, a charm broke off. That was annoying. Furthermore the leg spatz do not fit me and I can't say the puffy ankle rings one looks that great on me either. Ok, so my legs aren't the slimmest, but they aren't the biggest either. Most of all, what has certainly disappointed me is they are the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever tried on. They are hard, they dig into my heel (you're literally left with a line across the back of your heel after 2 seconds) and I find it almost impossible to take any steps because of the pain. Today was the longest I've ever suffered them for (around 2 minutes) as I just can't bring myself to go through that every day. Unfortunately for me, it's what I'm going to have to do. I love the shoes, the design is great, they look good and I don't want to take away from the initial euphoria I felt when I bought them. I don't want to be completely negative about them, but I do wish I'd been able to try them first and with hindsight I probably should've sent them back but the logistics of that seemed too complicated at the time. On a brighter note, hopefully if I do continue to suffer them, they'll get more bearable. So, we'll have to see and hope because it's a helluva money to go down the drain and I really don't think I'd get anywhere near the retail price if I eBayed them. Finally, this may very well be the last post for a while because my camera has just broken after taking these pics. I cannot get the lens to fully extend when I turn the camera on (it just makes a beeping noise and closes again). From what I've read online I'm going to have to get a new camera : ( Oh and I also have a Simon Cowell droopy eye thing going on today in the photo below...not through repeated botox/eye lift surgery though, may just be dodgy eyeliner!

Wearing: Pink gingham sun-dress Pearl Lowe at Peacocks, black leggings and cardi Primark.
Fit: Run a little small. 4 1/2" heel.
Comfort: You're kidding right?
