I ended up wearing my dog shorts with the pug socks, because the more dogs the better!
I also finally fixed my favourite shoes. They're a pair of clear high heel jelly sandles. I bought them during summer, and pretty much wore them for a month straight until the side split. I kept them because I thought I might be able to repair them. A few days ago I was browsing the internet and stumbled upon this thing called shoe goo which is a strong adhesive designed for shoe repair and waterproofing. This. Stuff. Is. Magic.
Basically I was able to repair and reinforce the split, and now it looks like it never happened!
