Style for Style: Breaking in New Shoes

I recently purchased my first pair of Chanel flats and wore them for the first time yesterday! I promised myself I'd sport them every single day for a year, so as to make every penny I paid for them worth it. Well, after only wearing them once, my little toes got red blisters on them and I had to break my promise...temporarily! I went out and bought some ped socks, but it was too late. Plus, the Chanels don't look as pretty with those ugly not-socks sticking out from the sides!

Want to know how I solved my problem?, then

Last night I was pondering about how I am going to keep my promise to wear my Chanels every day for a year without them thrashing my toes. A little light bulb went off in my head and I decided to stick Spa Socks, $13, like these, in the front of my shoes. I let them stay overnight, and by the time I got up for work, they had stretched out enough so as not to stick to my toes! So the next time you get new flats and they are tight in the toe area, just stick some thick socks in them for a day and they'll be ready to grace your feet without killing them.
