Confession: I hate wearing heels.
I love the way they look. I love the way they instantly make me feel like a glamazon and do wondrous things to make my legs look seventy billions times longer than normal, and actually give me defined calf muscles, but damn I hate wearing them. It's just not in my DNA to wear shoes on a slant. Give me flat soled shoes anyday.
Honestly, I wish I wasn't like this. I wish I was Carrie Bradshaw ala Sex and the City gliding gracefully down the streets of New York in towering stilettos. I just can't do it. Those suckers hurt and I still, even after 30 years, feel ungainly in them.
But sometimes, an occasion will call on for you to pull out those heels. This occasion occurred for me last Friday night (my school's Deb Ball) and I had to race to find some shoes to go with the dress that I had bought. I ended up finding a gorgeous nude pair from Novo, but damn they were tall. Well, for me anyway.

I had forgotten to bring the dress in to match them, but luckily they were a perfect match.

I grabbed my husbands arm as I teetered and tottered unsteadily over the dirt and rocks on the way to the hall. I tell you what, next time I'll be investing in those shoe gel pouches as my feet were killing by the end of the night, and of course the first thing I did was kick those suckers off as soon as I got home.
Don't get me wrong, I still absolutely adore heels and love window shopping for them, but on a day to day basis I'll always choose flats or wedges over heels. If you're someone who can wear them everyday, I'm extremely jealous and admire you greatly! How on earth do you do it?
