How to pack for Ireland in August

I am going to Ireland for 8 days in August with my mom, aunt and cousins. I'm looking at the average weather and panicking a little about what to pack/bring/carry. I specifically need a good backpack for a camera, and some decent looking shoes. Can you help? [more inside]

Hey, check out these cute tiny getas

So I found these awesome little Japanese sandals (called geta, I now know) and I am wondering if it's ok to use them for dress up or if they are worth something and I shouldn't damage them. [more inside]

Low heeled shoes + sexy/fly? Is it possible?

Unfortunately the beautiful ivory and crystal 3 inch pumps I bought for my wedding make my dress too short! I was kind of distressed, but now I'm seeing this as an opportunity to get a little wilder. Wedding colors are red-red and any shade of purple. Please link me any (well, no Chucks please and no flip flops) kind of pretty/sexy low heeled shoes (in ivory, muted gold, red, or purple). Interested in a kitten heel in ivory, but I'm also way more open minded now than I was before. Purple suede laceup Oxford with side cutouts? Sexy red patent kitten pump? Ankle booties? My dress is ivory lace, strapless, floor length. Thank you thank you thank you!

Help me find flip-flops with arch support.

I am looking for flip-flops that have nice arch support. The arch on my left foot collapses quite a bit when I walk. I want the shoes to be flip-flops, not Birkenstock-style sandals. I am male, and I live in the U.S.

Chucks are my perfect shoe, except when it rains. Help!

I wear my Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars shoes everywhere, and they go with pretty much any outfit. I LOVE THEM! However, they get soggy at the slightest hint of rain. What's the next best all-purpose, all-weather, awesome shoe for a girl?

shoe fit

I bought a pair of men's leather dress shoes with an elongated, narrow toe box last week, and now they're killing me. Something about the funky shape is causing the leather to "bite" down right beneath my big toes on both feet, leading to painful sores. I probably should've gone for one size smaller for a more natural fit, but I've already worn them for a week so I can't take them back. Any suggestions for how to fix this, or am I stuck just getting rid of them?

I would prefer not to look like an extra in Working Girl

Over the last 4 months, I swapped out the driving part of my commute for walking. I walk about 4 miles round trip. This is great, but my beloved heels are all gathering dust in my closet. I would like to do the shoe swap out at work, but I really dislike the look of running shoes and dresses clearly designed for heels. Where can I get cute shoes for this purpose or am I resigned to running shoes?

Cycling shoes--what do I need to know before I buy?

Doing my first (sprint) triathalon in about 6 weeks and need to start looking into gear. I don't have real bike/spin shoes yet, only good sneakers, and I'm ready to bite the bullet and get some. Anything specific I should know before I go into the store and ask someone knowledgeable for advice? Are there different types or are all bike shoes pretty much equal? (For instance, I'd love if I could get one pair and it would work for spin class + both the bike and run portion of the tri.)
