A Breath of Fresh Feet - How to Deal with the Side Effects of Shoe Fetish

Socks Rock...
Speaking of shoes, I am relieved that there is even an avant garde nod to the idea of wearing socks with our favorite shoes as seen here at the Hermes show.  This totally brings me back to my childhood:)  I used to rock the socks with my sandals all the time...
This season I'll attempt to properly incorporate this much more sensible approach into my everyday style. In the meantime, I will share a great Beauty S.O.S. on keeping feet fresh when socks are not an option.
...but Smelly Feet Stink!
We should be nicer to our feet, right?  They do so much for us despite our demands. 
Slip (Squeeze) into this feet.
Walk feet.
Go there feet.
Look Good feet.
Keep it going feet!
After long, hot days in lovely shoes, I find that Sweat is an inevitable adversary.  Now that the days are lengthening and the chances of bare (or exposed) feet are increasing, we often run right into Smelly Feet 911 after a long day in the trenches. 
Invited last minute by someone special to Happy Hour cocktails?
Girlfriends ready to hit the dance floor in strappy sandals?
After-work meeting with clients at the new Hot Spot in town?
Did your spouse just inform you that you're having dinner with VIPs (Boss, neighbors, friends, kids)?
Don't Soak Your Head Silly, Soak Your Feet;)
Under your workdesk
In the restroom
In your car
Pretty much anywhere there's privacy
1. Grab some Mouthwash*
2. Fill a medium, shallow pan/tub/container (anything that will fit your feet will do) with enough Mouthwash to cover at least halfway up your foot.
3. Soak for 10 minutes
4. Towel Dry.
5. Go:)
*If you have cuts or open wounds, I'd suggest Epsom salts and warm water til you heal.
This is all I have on hand.
It may be beneficial to use one with antiseptic properties...
I worked a Trend Show Weekend in 2007 that had me running so much that by Sunday my feet were too swollen to fit into my shoes.  If I only knew then what I know now.  Probably could've used it during the last trimester of pregnancy too...
Give it a try.  I think you'll like the results!
