Recently, I’ve had a bit of a shoe obsession. But I’m also realizing that I’m having a situation where my eyes are a little bigger than my stomach. In other words, I see shoes that I adore and want but they just aren’t practical.

Do you ladies get what I’m saying?

I recently ordered these Nine West Rocha Pumps from Amazon and they came and I thought I’d never be able to wear them. Luckily they ended up being really comfortable.

But I also ordered a pair of these Nine West Jazzmym black pumps at about the same height that ended up being awful. I keep them in my closet because they are just so completely cute, as if sitting there collecting dust will somehow make them more comfortable and I’ll suddenly be able to walk in them?

The bottom line is that it’s important to find shoes that are comfortable – preferable of course are comfortable shoes that are fashionable! I definitely tend to forget that when I get starry-eyed over cute looking shoes. What about you? Do you ever make the unrealistic shoe purchase?

And I will say this – I love spring and summer because I heart wearing wedges – cute AND comfortable!


  1. I have a pair of the Nine West Rocha’s in black. Cute & Comfortable!

  2. Haha! I love the analogy of ‘eyes bigger than my stomach’. I have that all the time with shoes! I love the look of platform wedges, heels, and strappy sandals- but realistically I am more comfortable in flats.

    Good to know the first pair you bought were comfy- they are gorgeous and would go with anything. I’ve been wanting to get a similar pair- but fear spending the money and then having them sit in my closet (like your black pair). I have a few pairs that are collecting dust as well…
