I love beautiful shoes and it would be fair to say I have been unpractical with quite a few show stopper pairs of shoes!!!

As a Stylist , I have helped countless women find comfortable shoes, heard their ailments and I thought to myself, someday that will be me and that day has come. F**** again!!! This will be temporary!!!!


So what’s the problem??

I have a neuroma on my left foot that is speaking loud and clear to me.  Shooting pain to be exact going thru my 2nd toe and the ball of my foot.  Throughout my life I  have dealt with pain while suffering from heel spurs, bunions, plantar fasciitis, blisters that are bleeding, calluses that excite my pedicurist, and ingrown toenails.  Shall I go back to explaining the early years of discipline in Ballet class???

So on that note you must realize how painful a neuroma is for me to hold up the SURRENDER FLAG!!

AS I am no quitter I made an appt with my podiatrist for a cortisone shot and he said it will help tremendously. He also said neuromas predominately only occur with women due to our shoe choices.

 I also went to GOOD FEET to get arch supports that will shift my gate when I walk and hopefully improve the situation.

It was suggested I bring in a few pairs for proper sizing.

Olivia suggested I buy a Strengthener pair that will help heal the neuroma , and a Maintainer pair that I can wear with a variety of shoes to add some support and comfort.

Olivia was so helpful and I recommend anyone with feet issues to go see her and get some Arch supports.     The store is located in the Crossroads Shopping Center.  4811 E. Grant Rd Suite 127 Tucson , AZ 85712 Local: (520) 327-3163

It has been a 2 weeks and I am praying to the shoe gods they work.   The price per pair was $300.  In the meantime I have been re-working my outfits and trying to re-work the system. I am not use to wearing flats at all.

My flat shoe collection so far:




Can I pull off a Kendall Jenner look??  Have they come up with leg extensions yet??

flats 4

I love this look with sneakers!


And a few more looks I will try to mimic!

Fortunately flats are in so I will just have to do my best.  At 5’3 it is just not my first choice.




Stay tuned and  I will be working on Stylish Outfits sans heels but rather FLAT’s   Also praying daily: NEUROMA be GONE!!!!
