To touch on
the title, we are all familiar with the “Traveling Shoe salesman”. I cannot
even imagine, going door to door, attempting to sell shoes to anyone. Just
seems a little in-efficient. But I guess in the past, it was a job and there
were people willing to do it. I think the “traveling shoe buyer” would
be the better job to have. 😉
recently in Ohio for a business trip. I was excited to go to Ohio as it is the
location of the Corporate headquarters for DSW. I felt there is not a place
that should be better than the location of the headquarters for the
representation of the business. As I did find some things to be different there
was nothing to vast. It was still a great time looking at things in new places.
I was able to get around to three DSW stores in the area I was staying at.
I found many
shoes I would have liked to have but as usual, not in my size. I came across
these Jessica Simpson’s that were calling out to me. I recognized them but
could not put my finger on it. I thought “I have a certificate that will
bring the price to about half, so why not..?” The grey color is
fascinating, mixed with a black heel and platform and a tinge of Maroon accent.
What a combination. Once I returned to my hotel and tried them on, took
pictures I remembered why these look familiar. I have them in another color. A
beige with white heels and platform and a red accent. I will mention I found a
few other shoes I liked in my size but being the way it is to get through security
at the airport, I did not want to over stretch myself for checking in bags, so I limited myself to one purchase.
I did however get four more pairs on-line. The advantage for me buying on-line
is the available size 12. It is not as much fun as going to the store, but I
got to do what I got to do for the shoes to fit.
Jessica Simpson wood heel sandals are fantastic. They only had the color black
in my size, but the brown ones were my favorite. I keep my fingers crossed to
see them available.
& Katie cork wedge sandals are very comfortable. I was able to get these in
a size 12. Very well padded insole covered in suede. If I recall, these were
very inexpensive. Thus the reason I got them. Not sure I will be wearing these
out much if at all, but if I can I will. I do like the look and feel, I am just
not sure on how to wear them.
open toe sling backs with a wood heel and sole by Dereon have a vibrant gold
chain on the vamp. These were the last ones and I may have mentioned this before,
I love wood heels. If I am being honest with myself, these are a little short
for my foot, but I do not see myself returning them. They are absolutely stunning!!!
I am hoping to go to dinner tonight in them.
Simpson Leopard print round toe pumps. What a fantastic fit. I may have some
trouble with my left foot flipping out while walking so a size 11W would be the
best for these rather than the size 12W I have. No matter, I can were socks
with these. if I need to.
I will take
this opportunity to thank all of the people that gave me some answers to my
last post. I am keeping track of the requests and ideas for content as well as
the responses to my suggestions. I will get to them in time. An update on the
video topic; I am working on the best way to make this available. I do not hide
the fact I am a male who likes to wear high heels, but I am shy and this
identification can be harmful to my profession.
