one step at a time

I've been having a lot of shoe trouble lately. The wedges that I debuted last Monday had to be returned because they ripped within 10 minutes of me wearing them, then a pair of Michael Kors wedges that I bought yesterday were too slippery to walk in, so I returned those also. Today I bought the wedges I'm wearing in these pictures. It's incredibly hard to find a comfy, well made and pretty pair of wedges, but I think that these will last...hopefully, fingers crossed. I'm so tired of returning shoes.

So G20 craziness going on here in Toronto. Watching the news right now, and it's crazy. At least the police are taking some action today, yesterday was a major fail. They didn't do anything. Six police cars were torched and no police appeared to do anything until it was too late. Downtown Toronto looks so sad. Watched a video of an American Apparel getting it's windows broken, so sad. :( I feel horrible for all the people whose property has been destroyed.

I echo your shoe frustration. I've had to return a couple of pairs the past month or so and it's annoying when the pretty shoes are uncomfortable and the comfortable shoes are ugly. I have yet to find my perfect pair of wedge.

And yes, Toronto has turned into such a lifeless sad town. :[ It's hard to believe, really.

Frock Around the Clock said...

I read about that in the paper this morning - very sad! On the bright side of life, those wedges look very sturdy and I'm sure they will serve you well throughout the summer months! :) x

So jealous of your gorgeous skirt - love it.

Sorry to hear of your shoe problems...the new wedges look great!

I'm glad the G20 insanity is over.
