That's the only way to explain the impulsive purchase of these rather cute, but
fairly extremely impractical shoes, at least by a near 6-foot mom of active toddler with a barely 5' 8" husband whose only opportunity to wear such shoes to anywhere other than music class was a dive bar called "The Elbow Room."
At least they were only $19 (pretty good for BCBG Girls). I suppose I should have looked at the label; anything labeled "girls" that's not referring to a supportive nursing bra should be put down immediately. At least that's what I think Nina Garcia would say.
They definitely make cute shoes, but the 4 inch cork wedge is as about as useful to a stay at home mom as leather chaps.
Great for dressing up in to play "Evil Motorcycle Stepmother in Drag," but not so much for anything else.
I figured the rainbow straps would ensure they'd match everything I owned. Unfortunately, I should have thought about if they fit in my shoe holder since that's where they have been since I bought them about a year ago.
And while I'd love to find an excuse to wear them (other than for bug stomping and trying to reach the dishes in my top kitchen cabinet), at this point in my life they will only add years then shave them off.
Plus, my hips kill me when I try to wear them.
