I've got sandals, yay!

I recently bought these leather sandals that I am hoping I will be wearing a lot this summer. I was inspired by Hutch’s picture in this post and when I saw these I thought I had to check them out and see if it would work. I think they look very femine and simple, perhaps a little girlish. My Lymphedema foot does look big but I will only wear them with long trousers anyway so perhaps it will be allright. I wear a toecap so I can't wear opentoe sandals/shoes but these ones hides it enough while it still provides some air for my feet.

I got them in two different sizes, one size for each foot and I am selling their lonely partners on eBay. If you want you can check them out here.
They are US 7 (right) and 8 (left). UK sizes are 5 and 6 and European is 38 and 39.

Cute little film about Lipedema

I just saw on Helen Samias blog that June is Lipedema Awareness Month and as this condition is somewhat related to Lymphedema I thought I'd share the link to a cool little cartoon about living with Lipedema. As a Lymphedema patient I can relate to the first bit about ones leg suddenly sweeling for no apparent reason and the frustration that comes with it. Check it out, it is quite sweet. It is made by Lipoedema Australian Support Society (LASS).
