wardrobe challenges

I love shoes, I mean... who doesn't?
I went shoe hunting today: result... ZERO found :( 

There is a whole lot of frustration that comes with shoes in my case.

I'm a size 4, yup: just like Cinderella...

When it's about sneakers, I don't do that bad, I simply buy a size 3 or 3 1/2 Y and usually I can even save some money (although if I particularly love a certain pair of sneakers that's not in production in the kids' version, I can forget about it).

Trouble comes when it's about high heels, wedges and stilettos...
Some designers have some 4 or 4 1/2, and are usually shoes that I don't really like.
Most of the time, shoe sizes for women start at 5 or 5 1/2: if you want to picture it, it's like when your toddlers used to wear your shoes around the house, same thing.
(and same noise of clapping heels on the floor)
I am a big customers of insoles, plantar's pads, heels' pads, not to mention cotton balls in the toes... :(

Winters are easier, two pair of socks and an insole and my boots get to fit me just right!

But when it comes to sandals or pumps...  there is always a big gap between my heel and the heel of the shoes... 
Pretty much like...
like these YSL sandals?

oh, I'm feeling so much better now!

I'm so taking my pumpkin pulled by mice and going shopping for size 7 right now :(
Sorry, Yves, but these sandals don't look right. NO - NO.

I like when shoes fit, wrap my feet, almost tight.

What is your wardrobe challenge (if any)?
