When Fashion Fails You.

I feel like people and designers have really been upping the ante lately, especially when it comes to everyday fashion. I’m not sure where I first saw these boots below but they essentially gave me the idea for this post. It sparked a thought, ‘was there ever a time that I have seen an article of clothing or accessory that I had to have regardless of the fact that it was virtually unwearable’? And the answer was YES! I have MULTIPLE pairs of heels that I have never worn, simply because I can’t walk in them. It has been absolutely impossible for me to walk ten feet in any direction and I didn’t even factor that in when making my purchase. What came over me? From this day forward I am making a conscious decision to never purchase anything that could potentially break my ankles, stab me in the face, or make it impossible to operate a vehicle. Please join me in this movement.

Rain is usually wet, slippery, and harder to walk in then when it is dry. This seems crazy dangerous and all around uncomfortable. But let’s be real, you’ve probably sold a ton of these)

And while I feel that the limit has only been slightly  crossed here, that isn’t even the issue I have with these nails. Try typing, driving, riding a bike, or even tapping a number into your phone. Most of these things will end in tears. The only thing these nails will be good for is flipping the bird)

Maybe we should stick to our converse sneaks and stay safe this weekend!
