Big foot


I have big feet, I do! They are long, they are wide, and quite high as well…

It’s very difficult to find nice flat sandals to fit my shape, so I don’t like too much shopping for this type of shoes! 

I love heels, but it’s not always the best choice when you know you are going to do a lot of walking!

I only brought with my my flat adidas, they are closed and more fit for something else…

So I decide to go look for something more elegant! 

It sure is a pain in many ways!

I want these petit flats with tiny straps, but the side of my foot will scratch the ground, because they don’t make these type of shoes for big foot….And like always I end up with flip flops!

I had to try them on in the shop. Bringin my right big foot out of the dark from within a sweaty adidas was not a pretty sight! 

I was discusted and withdrawn it very fast and said fine, I’ll take them, in French…

I went straight to a nail saloon I have passed like 100 times alway thinking I should go and get a treatment!

I went right in and yelled: «Pedicure s’il vous plaît»

They took me in, sat me down and started to work on my very big and tired feet! 

And just to give you an idea of how I felt….have you ever seen Dumb Dumber from 1995?

Leaving With Luggage
To give you an idea of how much I was carrying….

I’m on my way to Monaco to set up a SchimJolie silk design viewing and also to build my business net work and meet with my dealer here and see some friends!

Armed with designs to my teeth, after I had to relieve my suitcase for 2,5 kg overweight, and put them in my hand luggage in order to avoid paying €75 in extra overweight fee…I’m finally on the plane to Nice!

I’m laughing and picturing myself at 05:30 this morning pulling out 2,5 kg silk/wool designs and dressing up in them, to get my baggage checked in! Then through security with all the scarves, Suie the small suitcase packed with even more designs and Luie the tool bag tucked inside big Bluie to make it look like only one piece in addition and my StyleGuides put into a shopping bag to make it look like it was a gift I just bought at the airport! Leica camera had to go around my neck and I regretted bringing with me the big Bose headphones with noise reduction….

Omg I met a friend who works at the airport and she couldn’t help but laugh at me and wonder if they would let me through! But as soon as I’m through security I arrange everything so it doesn’t look as much. Actually my friend comment on how it didn’t look as bad as it did first!

When I enter the cabin my 10 wool/silk designs are around my neck, Luie is inside my big bag Bluie… Bluie is on my shoulder and hiding behind my back, and Suie the suitcase comes in first! Then we serve the flight attendants a big brave smile and say «Good morning», before we elegantly make our way through the aisle and find our seat! Not warm at all….!

You know I was sweating bullets, but it’s good morning exercise, kind of…I guess!
