The Clash of Heels
And I was right. The weather is cold again, no longer in the nice 40s. I can no longer wear my nice boots due to the slippery and slushy snow. But I must look on the bright side because Spring will surely come.
And I may be a wimp, but I don't care. I saw these gorgeous wedges at Target, for only $20 no less, but I decided not to buy it. Why? Because they were not comfortable. After wearing them for 5 minutes or so, my feet started to have a dull ache to them. Those heels would probably last me 1 to 2 hours before I start to feel unbearable pain and I expect 3-4 hours for heels. So I decided not to buy them.
I have a love-hate relationship with heels. I love them because some of them are really adorable and would look fabulous with dresses. And I also love them because they make me look taller, being the short girl that I am. But I also hate (the lot of them) because they are so uncomfortable to wear. Maybe it's just my feet, but I don't usually last long in heels. Some gals can go for a whole day in heels, but I max out at 4 hours. Is there a secret to wearing heels that I am clueless about? If not, I'm starting to think me and heels are just not meant to be.
And I totally do not buy into the "heels make your legs look slimmer" that has been mentioned several times in fashion magazines because the truth of the matter is, they simply don't change the way my legs look. I am not changing my legs in any physical way by wearing heels so they are not slimmer or appear to be slimmer. Heels only serve to add height and dress up an outfit.
