Curmudgeon

Four Words: It snowed last night. And just like that, it feels like January again. So of course, my cold is back and so is my curmudgeonliness. I had to take these photos indoors, so please excuse the crappy, lighting available to me in the early morning. 

On the bright side, I lurve my thrifted Kenneth Cole Reaction heels! I wear a 7.5 normally, which is apparently what size these babies are, but they wear super huge! Do you have any tips on how to make too-large shoes fit? Or shall I just stuff the tips with cotton?

  1. Did you get much snow? We only wound up with a dusting (enough to need to clean my car, but not enough to shovel) It made me sad because I wanted to wear cute shoes today, but my feel were waaaay too cold.

    Honestly I haven't found a great way to deal with the shoe gap yet aside from putting something into the toes. I'll have to keep an eye in case anyone has a good suggestion!

  2. Your new shoes are awesome! Sorry about the cold snowy weather. Hmmm, you could try adding implants into the shoes, that always works for me. Looking cute as always, hope you are doing well!

  3. I think the snow is avoiding MI, but it is cold. As for the shoes try inlays they normally help.

  4. cute outfit!

    :/ the cold weather still lingers in texas as well. x_x good thing i didn't put away my sweaters and jackets back in the storage.

    from experience, shoe insoles usually do the trick.

  5. Super adorable outfit Laura. Those shoes are sweet! Looks like everyone is saying inlays. I hope you get a solution soon. I know it's cold there, if it's chilly here in nola. The weather can't make up it's mind.

  6. Have you tried a bulky pair of insoles in the shoes? They look really cute. And I love the Express dress.

  8. I have little feet and am constantly trying to get bigger shoes to work for me. There are those little gel things they make to put in the inside heel of the shoe to keep it from slipping, those usually help me.

  10. Ah snow one of the reasons I moved to California! ;) Your a brave one wearing heels in the snow tho I could never get away with that. I usually try those padded Dr Scholls (I think that's how you spell it..) insole things or viva paper towel + cotton to make shoes fit... The second method is a little crazy but it works! haha

  13. I don't like snow, either :P At least you look super cute! As for the shoes, yeah - I think they make inserts and padded insoles. The petite fashion bloggers usually come up with lots of creative ways to wear bigger shoes! Like Extra Petite.

  14. I am totally loving those shoes. You look great.

    I'm sorry for your snow. I actually wouldn't mind a snow day. I am exhausted and need an excuse that would let me miss work for a day.. or two.

    I hope that your cold is starting to improve.

  15. I always buy these super neat (cheap) heel grips from Payless...they are sorta a cross between gel/fabric and stick along the back inside of the heel. Adds some cushion and also some stick, so it helps the shoes fit better :) These heels are great, so find a way to wear!!!

  16. Laura, you look fabulous. I love this outfit on you! As for the shoe help, I was going to suggest either an insole or heel strip. They usually work :)

    I hope you're feeling better. Happy weekend!

  17. Laura you look so pretty and not sick at all ( I hope yo feel better soon though!!) I love those shoes. I have some shoes that are huge on me too, but I buy those thick shoe insoles at Target and they really help (and there comfy too!!) Good Luck!!

  21. Gorgeous shoes!! I just stuff my shoes with cotton if they are too big or buy inserts. Sizing is so tricky with shoes these days. Argh!

  22. Great shoes! I can see they're big on you in the photos! Does stuffing the toes with cotton actually work? It seems so obvious, yet I had no idea. Wow...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my gosh, those shoes are awesome! Yep, stuffing them with cotton was our suggestion. Maybe some cushion inserts might help too. Love your dress too.

  24. In the shoe section of Target you can find little packs of silicone-ish heel wraps that you can affix to the inside back of the shoes. Maybe that will help?

  27. Stuff them with that green foam they use for flower arrangements. It will push down and your toes with push into...but it will be comfortable and let you have a good fit. Cute outfit!

  28. You look gorgeous!

    Get party feet (gel inserts under the balls of your feet) to stop your feet sliding forward. Then heel grips (preferrably suede) against your heel to hold this in.

    I use both on my heels my sis got me from Italy and they work a charm.
