The Doctor's Orders

Since last October, I've been having really intense pain in my left foot at random times throughout the day. It doesn't matter if I'm wearing heels, flats, boots, or no shoes and it doesn't matter if I'm walking, sitting, standing or lying down. I don't recall any one event occuring that caused the injury, but I'm pretty sure it's just caused by my love of wearing really high heels.

I recently went to the doctor to have it looked at. I wasn't having the pain while at the doctor's (of course!). She couldn't find anything wrong with it so she asked me to avoid heels, handed me a pamphlet on bunions and sent me for an x-ray. The x-rays came back normal.

Now what?

My doctor's advice suggests flats.
I like heels. A lot.
I own very few pairs of flat shoes and more than half of those are boots. With the weather warming up, I won't be wearing my boots much anymore. I guess that means I need to buy more flats. The trouble is, flat shoes have never really appealed to me.

I made a list of styles of flats I could consider buying and I've come to realize my taste in flats is verrrrry expensive.

Where do you look for cute and affordable flats?
