Switching into some 3 inch wedges allowed the pant leg to hang properly and really made the whole look better. Did I suffer for it, yes I did. By hour 5 my toes really hurt and I had a blister the size of Texas. Did my pants look a heck of a lot better all day? Yes, yes they did.
The moral of the story? Pay attention to where your pant leg sits. If it's bunching up around your ankle or sitting on the ground, you need to hem it or wear higher heels. If your pant leg doesn't come anywhere near the floor, then your heels are too high and you need to wear lower ones. So the "little thing", the detail for today...heel height matters.
(and obviously, blisters don't) LOL
