Shoeaholic Mourns Stilettos, Copes With Comfort
I was never really a shoeaholic, but in my day I loved to wear a good looking pump! Now it truly pains me that I can no longer go much beyond a good kitten heel due to my enema issues.
This video cuts straight to the heart of some of the issues you just about have to face as you age - finding a way to do so in a way that accommodates some of your new limitations - while not giving up on style!
Just remember - if you don't indulge in denial and keep your head in a positive space, it can be done!
I have a pair of walking shoes similar to the ones this lady finally settled on - and I have received more complements on them than on any heel I've ever worn. I think it's because they have a very pretty toe - so when you look down you see these pretty shoes sticking out from under the pants, not the swollen foot!
