Open Toe Shoe Pledge

A good friend of mine just reminded me of this since the warm weather has graced us these last couple of days here in South. Here's "The Open Toed Shoe Pledge" I'll be implementing for myself, and I think you should, too! You remember Mira's feet from Martin (see YT video below for a refresher)? We can't have that, lol! Ladies (and gents) let's get those pedis for this Spring and Summer. :o) I'll be watching, but until then toodles!  

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge 
As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules 
when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes: 

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over 
and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps. 

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free. 
I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.  (I've been GUILTY of this one, lol!)

I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow. 

I will shave the hairs off my big toe. 

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, 
mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there. 

If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into 
place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it. 

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. 
Scholl's if my feet need him. 

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low 
price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle. 

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell 
and begin to look like Vienna sausages. 

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she 
asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good. 

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they are actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them. 

I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and 
have a real pedicure (they are about $35 and worth EVERY penny). 

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals. 

Don't keep this to yourself - pass it on to other sisters.

  1. LOL that's hilarious! I will definitely share this. I see too many violators of these rules and it has to stop.
