For the Love of High Heeled Shoes
When it comes to shoes, high heels are my weakness. For someone who shops as little as she can get away with, I find my shoe collection embarrassing sometimes, and quite a number of them are high heel shoes, and I mean HIGH HEEL. As in six inches or more.
The best part about high heels for me is how elegant and sexy they make you feel. Your walk changes, and your humdrum figure stick out in all the right places. High heel stilettos will even completely transform any casual clothes one may be wearing.
Even a jeans and T-shirt will look all tushed up when you jazz it up with a pair of stilettos or good pumps. Your feet may be killing you and your toes could developing a million and one corns and bunions, but the compliments will keep you smiling wide.
The funny thing is, apart from these heels, the rest of my shoes or either completely flat or a sensible two inches or less. But these ones just do something to me when I see them lined up on the selves, I feel I have to get them and before I know it, I'm paying for them at check out.
I think this is the highest one. The stilettos I make sure I only wear for pop in and pop out events, like church or a non-dancing party but this is kind of inbetween and that makes me love it even more. For someone as vertically challenged as I am, there's this feeling when you're on seven-inches of platform sandals. You're not scared you're about to fall over, more importantly you're suddenly and automatically the same height as maybe 70% of the people around, and maybe even taller than some people, lol...
The high heel wedges are my attempt to be reasonable and kind to my feet. I wear them when I know I'll be doing a lot of walking as this last one below shows, or I'll be wearing them for a long time.
It is without doubt a fact that high heels are not good for your feet health, but while my vanity will not allow me to stay away completely, at least these wedges will ensure I don't fall on my face or break a leg while wearing them.
What about you? How high can you go and how far? Are you one of those who can walk miles, climb mountains and go jogging and dancing in their six inches?
