Dress Your Best … Day II: The Feet
Today I chose to dress for my feet. My feet are strong. They’ve carried me through miles and miles, running, walking, climbing, strutting and dancing. I’ve hurt them, and they’ve hurt me. I have a stiff joint in my big toe on my right foot, which doesn’t always allow me to wear the high heels I love. Today is one of those days, no big toe extension for me!

This was my “pre and post–yoga” outfit. I took the pictures after yoga, but you can clearly see the red marks on the tops of my feet from the Bikram fixed-firm pose. It is one of my favorite poses, and when I practice regularly the skin on the top of my feet starts getting tougher.
After yoga, in what is seemingly becoming a Tuesday night tradition, my friend Aarron, Corinne and I went to see Iron Man 2. It was exactly what I wanted it to be. And the nod to the upcoming Thor movie was very exciting for me as well (I’m a bit of a nerd for … all things, including comic books). We were, however, sitting in front of two people who hated life, and all things related to life. They were a total bummer. I had to switch seats post-mid-movie pee so that I could focus on the movie instead of their complaints.

These shoes were my absolute favorite shoes, and then I managed to lose track of them. Very sad. But I found them today while I was looking for a completely different pair! Very happy. It took me no time at all to remember why I love them as much as I do. I hate shoes that have any kind of arch support, but I don’t mind a cushy sole. These flats fit that bill perfectly.
The two bangles read: “Be positive believe in yourself” and “L’amour toujours l’amour.”
