I love Emma Pillsbury.
Shocking, I know, because who would love a redhead with great fashion sense and a heart full of gold?
And by great fashion sense, I mean awesomely superior fashion sense.
I had mentioned yesterday about What Would Emma Pillsbury Wear? And I am convinced that everyone needs to look at this blog, if for no other reason than to appreciate the bloggers who track down similar affordable looks all over the Internet. Seriously - the shoes they find are incredible. I love shoes.
I know my boyfriend often wonders why I buy so many pairs of shoes. I tell him it is because shoes are not depressing. I know I wear a size ten. I don't have to play a guessing game and try on three different sizes in order to get a proper fit. I go into Payless Shoes and walk to the Size 10 section and I know what my options are. If I go into a department store to look for clothing, however, or even an upscale designer store (like the trendy ones on State Street), I know there is a very good chance of them not carrying my size. Size 12 is enormous and no one wears it apparently. I wish more people catered to curves, but that is a note for another time. So back to shoes.
A pair of size 10 shoes may be uncomfortable, so I put them back and I don't buy them - but for the most part, they do fit and make my feet do a happy dance. I don't have to go through the anguish of feeling like I am having a fat day, or bemoaning the fact that I do have breasts. I can just buy shoes, and that is a complete confidence booster.
My boyfriend now sees it from my point of view - which is good, since these shoes go in his closet.
