And who doesn't love high heels once n awhile? Really? Come on.....just like Sandra Bullock said - it really helps your posture and does great things for your breasts! LOL!!!
Are there no heel lovers here? I'm wearing 4" heels this eve on a dinner date with friends....come on ... they make your legs look great the higher you go! Just don't trip.
CC, I remember those days... haha
At this, uh, time of my life just the word "heels" hurts. Yes, I have some really nice heels that I wear only when I will be sitting most of the time. Those times become fewer and far between. I have problem feet, Morton's neuromas that I inherited from my mother. The right foot is especially bad, and now the huge bunion that has developed from wearing heels earlier in life. When in my 20's I was taking dance and also running. One day I just started crying because my feet were hurting so bad. My teacher yelled at me when she found out I was running. Eventually the running shoes got better.
These days, I frequently have to pull my right foot out of the stirrups when trail riding because of the pain. Feels like stepping on a rock, intense burning. My mother had surgery to remove the neuromas, but she says that the scar tissue from surgery is just as irritating. She played tennis almost everyday until she was in her early 40's, so had a lot of pressure on her feet, too.
Anyway, I am so glad that flats are popular now, because I do care about what I look like, and .... I teach high school so I am microscopically examined everyday by teenaged girls who probably think "oh if she would only..." about the way I look every day! One girl even told me last year that I should go buy clothes at a really chi chi boutique, Anthropologie, because it is so "me" and I would look great.... haha, sorry, I ain't spending that kind of money on anything but what really makes me happy, like maybe a new trail saddle!
We DO want to see prom pics, though, TBG!
