Momma Told Me: Beauty comes in all sizes, even feet.
I am not a fashion blogger. I get a lot of great opportunities with some wonderful beauty and fashion brands, to feature here on Momma Told Me, and oftentimes turn them down. Don't get me wrong, I love putting on makeup and dressing up as much as the next girly girl, but I have a few confidence problems when it comes to turning the lens onto myself. Sure I've had my typical struggles with image, including weight. But, nearly 50lbs lighter than I was this time last year, that's quickly fading into an issue of the past. No, what haunts me most now is an issue I've had since I was a child; generously portioned feet. Every woman with a size 10+ foot knows the peril of shoe shopping. In high school I had to buy my prom shoes at Sketchers (comfy, yes, but hardly designer heels). Finding a size 12 shoe on a store shelf is nearly impossible, let alone one that actually fits my personal style or tastes.
Just in time for Summer this year I hit the latest additions to the Barefoot Tess range in search of some new kicks to show off my (see through) ivory legs. I decided to try B.F.T. Cozumel wedges and Valencia Black Clogs for two dramatic day to night styles. I fell in love with the beautiful neon orange, teal, pink, and yellow hues on the Cozumel wedges instantly, they reminded me of Miami, or Mardis Gras, and begged a light and flowy sundress. This also fit me perfectly, with a little extra room in the toe; so as to create a platform for my feet, rather than a precarious ledge. (If you've ever had your toes 'hug' the edge of a shoe, you know what I'm talking about.) The strap fit a little snug on my ankles, but proved to stretch in time, and were much lighter to wear than my other similar style wedges.
What Daughter Says: Don't let a number tell you you don't deserve gorgeous shoes, shop Barefoot Tess.
