Shoes That Shout (or make you wish you could)
Stilettos and platforms make your legs look longer, and if you believe the ads, they are required fashion. They seem to shout, “Look at me – I’m beautiful.” Or, “Mess with me and I’ll use my shoes on you.” Swollen, sore feet are not a beauty statement.
Instead of straining your body by wearing this style, why not consider other, attractive and comfortable styles? A reasonable heel can dress up a pantsuit or simple dress, make your legs look longer, and you can still walk without your fear of heights kicking in. Flats can look elegant or casual and walking is not only safer, it’s graceful. Practical can look and feel beautiful.
So, what should you do with that pair of red leather, stilettos? A woman I heard about uses hers as beverage servers. Before her girlfriends come over for dinner, she chills two bottles of sparkling apple juice, and then places the bottles into the shoes as part of her table decor.
