It’s New York, land of glitz and glam, sequins and seroquel.
Packing is tricky and everyone struggles with this each year. Let’s talk about shoes. Are you bringing your biggest stiletto heels to Blogher or instead settling on a good pair of Naturalizer Mary Janes?
The answer is yes and yes. Fashion is always the big question and shoes make the outfit. But comfort is key unless you need to look good then forget the comfort issue and go for pain and agony. It’s all about the connections you make and shoes get you in the door, right?
You’ll be sitting in conference sessions all day. No problem wearing those pumps that make your legs look 4 feet tall. Or is there?
You want to be prepared for anything that comes your way…any opportunity that pops up.
Like if The Bloggess asks you to run and get her a wine slushie. You need kicks for that. Fast moving kicks.
Like if Alphamom runs out of buns at the Cheeseburger party and you have to stand in line for her at McD’s to get some more. You need comfy standing shoes for that.
Like if Secret Agent Mama wants to take a photo of your fabulous feet and YOU want to show off your pedicure. You need fancy open toe pumps for that.
Like if Audrey McClelland walks by you and you want to look all fashionable and not like you usually do in your fuzzy UGG slippers that should never really see daylight. You need cute designer shoes for less that you got a deal on at Marshall’s. Probably BORN sandals because Casey and Jo-Lynne said so.
Packing is tricky to make sure you are ready for all these occasions. And Blogher a super busy weekend…”Occasions on Adderall”. So what super cool or comfy or back breaking or break dancing shoes are you packing?
