I know this makes me a bad female, but I can’t stand wearing high heels. They hurt! Seriously: what’s everybody’s secret? How do you walk in those things?
Once flats became chic, I was able to breathe a sartorial sigh of relief: I own flats in a variety of colors and live in them. It takes bribery (and usually promises of champagne and black tie) to coax me into a pair of heels –which happens about once a year.
So, while this isn’t really a challenge for anybody but me, I resolve to trade my flats for high heels!
High Heels, Smooth Legs
Obviously, the first thing I need to do to rock high heels is get my legs in fighting shape with some quality razor time. I use a Venus Pro Skin Moisture Rich Razor. I’m genuinely obsessed with Venus razors—in my opinion, they work better than any other razor on the market and I’ve been buying them since college. (This particular razor, however, has been generously provided by P&G!)
Next up: selecting the heel. I have a cute, orange pair that was sent to me as a gift months ago [note: actually, from SoleSociety.com, which is a super cool shoe club that I'm loving], and which I literally have not worn once. Now seems like the perfect time to pull these puppies out. I strap ‘em on, head out for the evening…and promptly experience foot pain about 5 minutes later. (Read more here.)
