I started a lifestyle category a while back, as a way of including bits and pieces from my life. I couldn’t work out why, but it didn’t sit quite right with me. There was nothing outright wrong that I could place my finger on. Recently, it came to me. How I shop is very different to most. If something isn’t comfortable, I don’t buy it.
Cue lightbulb moment. If I’m going to write about these sorts of random things in my life, it has to be on my terms. Comfort. And so, Comfort Lifestyle was born.
So, what exactly is Comfort Lifestyle? It’s anything in my life that I think fits the description. I know, blogging and being able to call what you want anything that suits you is awesome.
Today, it’s about shoes. Which is funny because I hate shoe shopping. Or most types of shopping, really. I have wide and large feet, so any women’s shoes that might fit me, sell out pretty fast. It’s also not the sort of thing I have a huge budget for. I totally fluked out earlier this year and found some flats that I can actually wear:
What’s the big deal about that? Flats are everywhere. Flats that fit size 10, wide feet (for under $50) are rare. I’m not sure if these are still around as it was a couple of months ago that I bought them. They’re decent enough for the price – $35 (though I bought them on sale for a bit less). Naturally, they’re not lasting as well as a more expensive pair would, but it’s acceptable enough for the bargain price.
Do you have shoe and budget issues? Where do you go for reliable clothing or footwear?
