Guys, I have a confession to make. I have a love/hate relationship with high heels. I love how they can instantly make you feel and look sexy. I love how they make my legs look longer and leaner. I love the confidence I get while wearing them and I love that there are so many gorgeous pairs to choose from. But the truth is, I can't walk in them. Well, technically I can but I look like a newborn giraffe when I do. I'm not sure if it's all the years of dancing that has taken a toll on my feet or what but when I wear a really high heel it's just not good, for me or anyone else in my path. I was always in awe of Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City because she wore heels all the time! And would happily walk 20-plus blocks in a gorgeous pair of Manolo Blahniks on the streets of New York. Do women really do this? Can some of you wear heels all day long without complaining? I could never. When high heels make my feet hurt I get cranky. Harrison Ford-cranky. I remember when I was on holidays in Vegas one time and we were going out to see a show, I wanted to wear these beautiful, brown (high-heeled of course) sandals I had just bought a few hours before to go with my gorgeous new maxi dress. We were staying at The Flamingo and had to walk to Planet Hollywood, which was maybe a 15 minute walk. Well I had to stop at H & M on the way to buy and change into flats! My feet and back were so sore! I just couldn't do it. Where am I going with this? Oh yes. So, I've had my eyes on sandals like these for ages:
This style was popular last year, too. These ones are from Zara and every fashion blogger (and their dog) seems to be wearing them and I can see why. They're very sexy and sleek! And look at these Jimmy Choos:
Gorgeous, right? But waaay out of my price range. Plus, I'd die trying to walk in them, obviously. So I ended up getting these ones instead:
Not as sexy but still cute. This pair came in the mail from Zara the other day. I'm confident Ill be able to wear them for at least a half hour without cursing Jesus. I'll let you know how I do in them. Hopefully this won't be me:
This video actually makes me nauseous when I watch it.
Have a great day! And hey, do you like wearing heels??
