This is me dressed for housework and sewing today:
I'm trying to rehabilitate these shoes. They're my very first stilettos, bought in the mid-seventies, just as super-high platforms were starting to go out of fashion the last time. My feet have got a little fatter or something - the last time I tried to wear them they were excruciatingly painful, cutting into my feet just where those attractive bits of cardboard are. Which is, of course, why the bits of cardboard are there. And the socks. I'm using my Dad's old trick, which was certainly not intended for shoes like these, of putting them on wet and wearing them until they're dry.
I look so ridiculous I just had to share the sight.
