STYLE :: High Heels

A guy asked me this morning whether any woman actually liked to wear high heels. He stared at me like I was crazy after I immediately replied, "Why yes, many women love to!" A few girls quickly swung to my defense, repeating my statement. It was a chorus of heel lovers.

Other guys joined in with question upon question about our quest for beauty.

"But don't they hurt?" "Is it hard to balance?" "Does the heel ever get stuck?"

We explained that yes, they do hurt but that they also elevate any outfit. Sometimes its just fun to wear heels. I usually wear heels when I'm doing something out to the ordinary: going out with friends, going to a celebratory dinner, going to the ballet. It always involves going somewhere, doing something.

Also, you kind of get that 'rule the world' feeling when you are suddenly 4 inches taller. 

One of the boys eventually relented. "Well, I do really love how you girls look in them."

We win.

What do you think? Are you the high heels type?


P.S. In other news, the site where my old blog layout was from no longer exists (much to my chagrin). Looks like it is time for another blog background!


  1. I wear heels every chance I get!! It's the only way I can justify the fact that I keep buying them, haha :) Plus I love the way they make me feel classier and more confident than usual. It's something I don't think guys will ever understand! :P Hope you're doing well!

  2. I really do love heels...I have a (relatively) small foot though, so I try to stay under 4 inches because I feel like my foot can look funny if the heel is too tall (think steep elevation from the toe to heel). I always feel classy and ladylike in heels!:) Confidence is a must...and please walk like a lady! I'm not sure a guy will ever understand, like Lisa said...maybe Elvis would have? haha

  3. I love this post (just found your blog, by the way!) I am with you - I like high heels. They make me feel like I have longer legs, and I just feel sexier when I walk in them. Granted, they can hurt, and that's never fun... but they are definitely one of my favorite types of shoes to wear!

  4. I have a question about your blog :) Please email me!
