I've worn them several times since and nobody ever says anything. So, I began thinking they must not be cute to anyone else. That surprised me because I LOVE them and HH helped pick them out and he has good taste. But I consoled myself with the fact that we both think they're cute and moved on.
I wore them today and thought nothing of it. Until a friend said, very enthusiastically, "Cute shoes! Are they new?" I said, "No," but I was thrilled that finally a compliment rolled in. And then another friend, or two also noticed and complimented. I'm not really sure what the difference was, but I was glad to finally have my taste validated. And it's always fun to get compliments!
Wishing you all validating Joyful Moments!
