Ok, so it rained 2.5 inches in Chandler Yesterday. The Ostrich Festival is held at a park about 1 mile from the house. It is grass & dirt and there are areas in which the water could very easily accumulate, like right here in front of the main stage. This is what it looked like when we got there at 12:00 Noon today.
Now, here are what my shoes looked like after an hour. There was standing water and truthfully, anywhere the rides were located were a quagmire of mud. The kids didn't seem to care and I intentionally wore shoes that could be hosed down at the end of the day. There is NO WAY that your shoes & the bottom of your pants would not be covered in mud by the time you left.
However, that did not mean people (ok, women) made shoe choices based on WHERE they were going. Nope, they went for fashion over usability. I actually heard a husband ask his wife, in sandals similar to those shown as she was trying to jump over a small puddle in the driest area of the park, why she had worn such stupid shoes!
Now, believe me, if you walked in the mud and your shoes were not securely fastened to your foot, they would no longer be ON your foot.
These are some of the better of the worst shoes seen today.
This one gets 3rd prize for poor shoe choices. However, she wins for worst outfit choice!
2nd prize....although you can't see the heels, they are 2-3 inch spikes under the jeans, hence the turned up toes because she was sinking into the wet dirt.
AND THE WINNER IS.........4 inch spike heels seen below!
Up tomorrow or later today? Photos of the HB family at the Ostrich Festival.
