I've been looking for several weeks and can't seem to find a pair of sandals I like. I'm not a 21-year-old clubber capable of striding about on 4-inch stilettos. I'm also not 85 years old and wearing pastel polyester matchy suits with ortho sneakers.

Just as with a lot of clothing, us middle-agers who want to be stylish seem to be utterly invisible to the fashion world.

What I am is a 45-year-old woman who would simply like a pair of 2-3-inch or so heels in a fashionable and somewhat edgy style that takes into account my freakishly high arches and would prefer to pay less than SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS A PAIR. Okay, that price point is me being sarcastic.

Is that too much to ask for?? Is it?? ARG!

I'm going to try on some Earthies today. I like some Tsubo styles. I like Clarks on ladies here, but I'm afraid they'd go all matronly on me.

I adore these Tsubos but the 4-inch heels make them useless to me. MUST. NOT. BUY. ANYWAY.
