Had a late night shift yesterday, so I got to wear civilian clothes during the day.
#1 is what I *wanted* to wear. I got all dressed up and everything, then looked at the weather forecast - 80! Ok, switched to #2. Wore this out to the Crocs store and the MAC store.
MAC was a great experience, but kind of a bust. I was kind of disappointed, because I'd heard their makeup artists/salespeople were amazing, but we just couldn't seem to find a color of their longwear lipstick that flattered me. It could be my mixed ethnicity skin tone... it took me a very long time to find a foundation/powder to match, too.
Crocs yielded fruit, though! I wore these super molded flats in bronze to work with my BF jeans (sorry, was too tired to snap a pic when I got home), and my feet were the happiest they have been. The only downside, as some pointed out, was that my toes got a bit sweaty. Compared to searing pain, though, that is something I can live with.
After a 7- hour shift, I only felt a weee twinge of something in the big toe... which is actually totally fixable, because the material is easy to stretch if you apply heat! I had already stretched them a bit before work but had clearly underestimated the amount of swelling that would take place. I also got these in black patent.
