DAY EIGHT: A LITTLE SOS

DAY NINE: HAPPY FEAT
10 days of 5" heels leave our tootsies screaming to be let out and enveloped in comfort. Comfort from one of our fave brands since our first pair of Sorels - the new Sorel slippers. Growing up not wearing slippers, they are kinda foreign to us but after slipping into these Sorels we wonder what we did without them. Although they are like wearing pillows and have rubber on the bottom keep them for the inside or at least the outside perimeter of the house.
DAY TEN: KICK YOUR FEET UP
Leave it all to the pros, sit back and relax. Toss the lbd over to CREEDS and let your fingers cook dinner with ORDERIT.ca
