Maam What Size Do You Need..................?

.......Excuse me, what size do you have?

I have been pleasantly surprised and perplexed by the exact science of shoe sizes. My go-to size is a 9. However, I can fit 8.5 up to size 10 comfortable. And to complicate the matter further, my right foot is in some cases a .5 size bigger than the left. I'm weird I know. Unfortunately this makes it a little harder for me to be confident when buying shoes online. Charlotte Russe always puts their last sizes on sale at 50% off so because of this I always just walk on in just for the hell of it and check out the selection. At some point last week I snagged this simple but chic pair for $12.49.

This pair is a size 10 and it does fit loosely. But I all I need to do is poke a little extra hole for the buckle and I'll be in business. So the next time you see a pair of shoes that you must have and the sales person ask what size you need, your response should be "What size do you have?"

Naturally I had to get a dress to go with it right? Actually I didn't match them at the time it just happened to work well together, lucky me. I snagged the dress for $9.99 marked down from $25.99.

Here is a neat video on how to stretch leather shoes if they are too tight. So by all means buy that .5 size too small. This trick really works. It worked for me on several occasions.


  1. Good to know! Usually when I buy shoes from Nine West for some reason they're not as comfortable as I would like them to be. I will definitely be trying this. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Cute dress and nice sandals, and for $13 that was a steal! Charlotte Russe has great deals on shoes. They always do a buy one get one 1/2 kinda thing. I love that store.

  3. I agree. I think that sale is happening right now. Every 4 weeks or so they do 50% addtl off clearance.Can't wait!

  4. WOW!! The things a girl will do to wear shoes....I AM GOING TO TRY THIS IMMEDIATELY!!! Thank you for this post!!
