I bought three pairs of shoes last week, and when they arrived I realized that they all look pretty much the same. Say what you want, at least I'm consistent. One friend at work said she would "die on her feet of boredom" if she had to wear shoes that looked the same every day. Where I come from, consistency is everything. If I bought a really nice pair of shoes and wore them to work one day, then people might notice. And if they notice that I have a pair of nice shoes, they'll notice that I wear tennis shoes every other day of the week. Then, I've created a problem for myself. It's better to stay off their style radar and go unnoticed. Leave the dressing up to other people.
