Yves Saint Laurent, meet Dr. Scholl's

I love the retro pinup glamour of this Yves Saint Laurent Lolita Dots Sandal.

So very high and sexy! The ankle strap and black patent leather trim make it extra flirty, while the wooden platform sole make it unbearably painful. Such is the sad predicament for the girl who loves the look of high wooden soled shoes, but who actually needs to walk and stand in said shoes.

All is not lost! I have high hopes for Dr. Scholl's new For Her Open Shoe Insoles.

These slim, discreet insoles are specifically designed for a variety of different open shoes, like sandals, strappy dress shoes, sling back and slides. Most importantly, they provide the necessary padding at the ball of the foot and heel that many of the most fabulous shoes neglect to include.

    These are ADORABLE! I LOVE high heels but never wear them because they hurt. Did you ever read Steve Martin's short story "The Cruel Shoes"? Hilarious. I think of it every time I see gorgeous but impractical shoes. Maybe I can wear these once I slim down a bit. (princess = a little TOO curvy). By the way, thanks so much for your support in my new undertaking. Your daily encouragement has really blessed me!

    The "for her" insoles are great. I picked up a pair the other week, and love them. Worth the $8 they ask for them.
