I'd be willing to walk or take the bus for these Sam Edelman boots.
Maybe I could put something over these Betseyville booties to prevent any fringe-related accidents. Like legwarmers! Betsey Johnson would approve.
What other measures could one take to avoid a fashion tragedy? I've been willing in the past to endure some measure of pain for really cute shoes. The price I pay is usually a blister at most. This is far more serious--we don't want any chic ladies wiping out in the street and being smushed by a car. That's certainly not cute.
