Friday night I managed to escape the house and children for a few hours to have dinner with two of my best friends. Before dinner, however, one friend and I went shopping. After months of searching, I managed to find some jeans that fit and a cool new shirt.
Our next stop before dinner was Nordstrom Rack, which if you've never been there, is overwhelming to say the least. I have yet to actually buy anything there because I can't I can't find anything.
I did swing through the shoe section, hoping against hope that they'd have some of my favorite running shoes in stock. They didn't, but they did have these fabulous shoes "designed" by Jessica Simpson.
Given that I spend most of my life in running shoes, Keens, Dansko clogs, or Birkenstocks, trying to walk in four-inch platform heels was an adventure. My friend and I were laughing hysterically as I teetered drunkenly up and down the aisle, trying not to trip over this nice lady who was actually looking for shoes, not just playing. My friend said the shoes made my legs look great. Too bad I couldn't walk in them. Plus, they were kind of ugly.
