I am off to a masked ball this weekend. I have my sexy red dress and have just found my sexy red shoes to wear with them. Only problem: I haven't worn the red shoes since before I was pregnant with DS 4 years ago and they no longer fit! I am both upset at my fat wide feet and also at the loss of this lovely pair of shoes to my collection.
What should I do? Take painkillers, ignore the slight toe cleavage and stuff them into the perfect pair of shoes, or wear a pair of proper fitting black and slightly but not nearly as sexy shoes?
I actually know the answer to this and plan to take the black shoes, but I want people to mourn with me the demise of my normal-sized young women feet as I now have had it confirmed.
With the amount of cleavage on show, I have doubts that I would look like a Clarins lady, but yes, they are far too pointy for my tastes now (the grapes are souring as I type). I will probably try and eBay them, but that doesn't change the fact I'm very sad about my feet getting bigger, never to return.
Thank you for the sympathy. <sniffs quietly whilst thinking about wailing loudly>
Foot expansion is definitely one of those things that no one ever told me to expect after having kids. I did laugh at the non-tranny DH comment. I bought my last pair of running shoes from the men's department as well. GreenEyes, that comment does give some small comfort, thanks.
