When we moved to Kentucky in 1995, I had a year to fill before I started law school, after a few days I grew bored with being around the house and took the first job that was offered, selling ladies shoes in a department store. It was an interesting experience. I learned to judge a person by the shoes they wear. Boring shoes = afraid of life, utilitarian shoes = needs comfort, tiger striped patent leather with spikes on the heels = not afraid to express him-self. It took me several years to get to the point that I could meet someone without immediately looking at their shoes. I was occasionally mistaken for an actuary or statistician. You can tell the difference between in introverted actuary and extroverted actuary. The extroverted actuary looks down at your shoes when they talk to you. Either that or the person sold shoes for 9 months 20 years ago and is still trying to recover from the experience. It was a fun job, the most mindless job I have ever had. The department manager told me one day that if she wanted me to think, she would pay me more (I didn't stay too long after that.)
Have some fun, wear something that reflects your personality. This summer I have declared Spo-Shirt or Hawaiian shirt Fridays.

I put my colorful side into my hand knits, be it a sweater of a shawl.
Next winter could be hand made sweater Friday for youDelete
My best shoes were donated by a kind filipinoReplyDelete
The next ones will have spikes on the heelsDelete

In that case you need a proper Spo-shirt and no rubbishReplyDelete

I used to work with a guy we called "Shoe-topper". That's the only place he ever looked while talking to you.ReplyDelete
I have one pair of fun shoes: Nikes, that are in rainbow colors. I wear them to youth group, one of the few places where I can truly gay it up. The rest are utilitarian: loafers, easy on/off, and comfy, trail shoes for walking distances, mukluks for winters like this one!
