I have freelance assignments that require me to be on my feet all day long sometimes. For that reason, I absolutely love shoe inserts, and have tried the gamut. There’s a new kid in town, though, and it’s Dr. Scholls’ Adjustable Arch Pain Orthotics. They come in light, medium and high adjustable arch support levels, with little arches that go on the bottom of the inserts, and they’re a wonder! When I’m going to be working or shopping or walking all day, I do high. When I’m going to be sitting most of the day, I do light. And when I’m going dancing, I do medium. Hurrah!
Of course, I got them at Duane Reade, the New Yorker’s answer to everything. I also spied these wonderfully helpful items at DR and snapped a photo of them.
Who doesn’t need these in the summer? Hollywood also makes a variety of other very helpful items, like wardrobe tape.
Thanks to Twinkletoes, I use Topstick like a loyal maniac, especially on a DVF wrap dress that has the tendency to come peeking open at the decollete at the most inconvenient times, like when I’m helping some poor woman carry her baby stroller down the subway steps (I was horrified! Gasp! I couldn’t put the baby stroller down mid-stairs and I didn’t have a hand free to adjust!). Luckily, major wardrobe malfunction was prevented ever after by Topstick, a men’s grooming tape that they use on the runways and that you can get at Manhattan wardrobe supply stores. Now, I can just buy a similar tape Hollywood makes at Duane Reade.
Double Hurrah! Here’s to a comfy-footed, wardrobe functional summer!
