I don't get the anti-pointy shoe feeling in here . None of my pointy toe shoes hurt. Some are my most comfy heels. The pointy part starts after your toes, so unless you are wearing the wrong size, they should not squeeze.
Donating to charity is one thing, but the person who had the clothes now has NOThing to sit around and be comfrortable in. I have some stuff which isn't stylish or great, but I just plain like it. If I feel good in it when I'm not out playing a "role", why not. I wonder how long it takes the people to go out and buy themselves some clothes which are comfortable to travel, sit or shop. Everyone needs clothes for times they are just being themselves.

The pointy shoe thing is simple. They are BAD for your foot. They don't allow your toes to stread out and balance the foot. They cause problems and pain. And the insistance on HEELS. Someone needs to educate Stacy and company that shoes which are not comfortable are NOT GOOD SHOES.

Oprah wears cutys pointed shoes on her show. On one of the features she admitted that she wears them on the show but not in real life because they hurt. We need to educate the shoe designers about how feet work and what damage their shoes are creating.

I agree with orangeapple. The pointed shows don't hurt or compress your toes if you wear the correct size. Your toes are in the widest part of the shoe, before the point starts. My toes are no more compressed than they are in any shoe. And I find mine all really comfortable.

The problem with some women is that they see all that extra "space" in the point, so they think they can go down a size or two and cram their size 8 feet into a size 6 shoe.

I know some women with foot "issues" find heels uncomfortable, but I've been wearing them for so long, they are very comfortable. I just make sure I buy good shoes that fit properly. Up to 3 inches, I'm perfectly fine. But my one pair of boots that have slightly over 3 inch heels cause the balls of my feet to hurt a little by the end of the day.

Yes, they are. I enjoy Trinny and Susannah too.

I have enjoyed the show for years. What it did for me was make me question what I wore and I did change for the better. It made me more conscious of fit and what flattered my body. My going out wardrobe is much better than it used to be. And I have real shoes as well.

Now hanging out around the house...comfort still rules.

I love watching this show, honestly they give good tips. For instance when they say that a dark denim is better especially if you're curvy... well, I hated dark denim but I decided to give it a try, and now I love it because it really fits me perfectly and much better than lighter denim! But I wouldn't have if I had not seen the show and the difference it made on women "like me"...
It may sound silly but thanks to the show I tried many things I would have never ever tried on before, but I did so out of curiosity and it worked very well most of the time!

As for the pointy shoes, it's not for everyone but I get what they're saying about it. It does help elongate the feet and make your proportions look more balance.
It's a TV show, it's not the law. Overall, I like the show because they do have a lot of good suggestions and make great points. I really just like to watch the two host interact, they're entertaining to watch.
I agree!

Just a comment - with all the talk about clothes, the hair stylist and makeup artist contribute more to changing the look of a person then all the clothes combined.
