Did you ever actually counted how long you were feeling comfortable while wearing high heels? We recently went out and since I didn’t had anything decent to wear, I went for my boyfriend jeans, you know the ones I was telling you about a while back. The only trouble is I have to wear them with high heels. Or else I’d be trashing the living fiber out of them. And I’d look like a misplaced cowboy.
So I put on some high heeled booties and off we went. It was all good while we were still in the car. Then we got off and started walking. Approximately a half hour later I was desperately scouting around for a place to sit my fashionista self and catch a breath. My feet were killing me! Now, discovering that there’s actually a study saying that the average woman can comfortably stand wearing a new pair of high heeled shoes for about 34 minutes it all became clear as daylight! It wasn’t my post – baby body that would not adjust to wearing high heels. It’s the way things are. High Heels / New Shoes only get you as far as 34 minutes with a real smile on your face. After that, you’re faking it: the comfort, the fashion. Everything. Cinderella much? (Insolia via; photos via)
