Recently, I decided to visit teen consignment shop Plato’s Closet (ooh, do NOT roll your eyes!). To my surprise, the inventory had expanded considerably and included some designer pieces- a little Coach here, a little Juicy Couture there…
Any way, as I roamed the aisles, I spotted my favorite type of shoe, The Mighty Wedge. For those of us who are, ah hem, vertically challenged and also a little clumsy, The Mighty Wedge not only acts as a height enhancer, but also as a balance stabilizer. It’s the best of both worlds; you get the sexiness of a stiletto and the stability of a flat.
And what’s this? Michael Kors you say? On sale?! That’s right, baby.
So my shoe philosophy for today is, “Don’t let your nose keep your feet from finding happiness.” In other words, don’t turn up your nose (or look down your nose, you get the point) at the thought of visiting a consignment shop, even one that targets teens, because high-end shoes can be hiding in unexpected places.
Remember, one person’s trash is another’s treasure- don’t be uppity. Uh un, don’t be that person. So, may the shoe gods smile upon you the next time you’re out shopping.
