Shoes! Wonderful Shoes!

I had to buy some new shoes for work, so I popped into Dillards to look at the clearance rack. Just looked what I found! I love love love these red high heeled shoes. I have a new red jacket and white shell, so I am pairing these with some dark washed jeans.

Here they are on. Actually pretty comfortable. I love the brand Michelle D , they are easy to wear and really comfortable. They last a long time and the best part is that they were 70% off the original price. WOO HOO!
This pewter pair I will wear with grey slacks and a pink and black sweater. I think these are cuter in person. And of course, I did find some work shoes. Nike shocks. I am trying to save my feet. I have worn the last pair for almost a year and they are now relagated to yard work shoes. I am so bad about wearing the same shoes over and over. I have to stop that. It's not like I do not have shoes. I have a tons of them, but mostly dress shoes. My nurse shoes are probably the most important ones I should have and yet I put the least thought into them.
I have to decided to buy another pair in a month and trade out so my feet wont hurt so badly. 12 hour shifts just are killers, I guess you really cant understand unless you are in this profession, but you never sit down! Anyway, I am so happy that I got all 3 pair on sale. Ok, now I need to work some overtime!
LOL, have a great day.

I love all the shoes, I can understand being a nurse you need really good shoes, I'm not a nurse but at the hospital now with my daughter, so many of these nurses work 16 hr shifts, ohhhhh I can't imagine, and it's like you said, nurses really don't get to sit down.

I love shoes, too, but I never buy them. I think that is going to change now!

I’m picking up a project I put down before the holidays and am asking for your help.

I set up a petition on Facebook for a USA National Thrift Store Month. Here is the URL:

I created a JPEG graphic on the top right on my site. I realize it’s kinda ugly. I just long for the day when I can afford a blog designer. You could create your own link or just write about it. But I really think we could make this happen, National Thrift Store Month.

Thanks for any help you may be able to supply and feel free to spread the word!

Sorry to leave this in the comments but I couldn't find your email. I really believe we can make this happen. It needs to happen to raise awareness.

Hello Lorri; OOOOOO do I see some cute little toes in those shoes...
I love the Red shoes, they are so gorgeous I love the others too, but the red is my fave....... have fun wearing them... I can understand about standing all day, I used to work in Retail, and I never got to sit plus we had to wear dress shoes. I don't think I could do that

Oh my goodness, the red shoes are so cute. Looks like you had a fun day.

All those shoes are truly awesome. Red pair is my most favorite.

I love shoes! I'm so envious that you can wear heels. I used to teach in heels but now...oh my poor feet can't handle it! You will be gorgeous in those red heels!

Nurses are angels on earth, and earn every penny they work for!
