When I was in high school, I went through about 4 YEARS of "that awkward stage"! But, I went to an "after party" after an orchestra concert I played in with mostly grad school aged people. One guy picked me up and said I had gorgeous feet! He made everyone look. Obviously, I have remembered that moment for like, 25 years.
Star Jones-style, even when you get heavy, your feel can look good. But you have to pamper them. Don't let callouses and bunions stay untreated. Soak your feet and keep them cute...even if you have to sacrifice to do it! It has been worth it to me.
