How to Wear Your Fabulous Heels Without Pain

Wearing high heels can make you stand so that your legs look slimmer, your stomach is flatter, and your feminity is unstoppable. It can also do wonders for your stride, but walking in high heels is not a natural talent it's learned skill, perfected by practice and discipline. For many women, heels present a conundrum: fashion or comfort? Although high heels are undeniably stylish and add flair to countless outfits, they can cause pain and possible injury. Take time when buying high heels and search for quality shoes. When wearing your heels, choose your steps carefully and take care to treat your feet well. Here are some great tips to help wear and also buy those favorite heels you LOVE!
  1. Buy quality shoes. Cheap heels can be excruciating; when it comes to shoes, it always pays to invest in quality construction and materials. Look for a pair on which the heel is solidly attached to the center of the shoe backing.
  2. Choose heels you will be able to walk in. Be realistic about your level of comfort while wearing heels. Look for shoes in which you will be able to navigate sidewalk cracks, potholes and bumps.
  3. Take a load off. To save your feet, remove them slightly from your heels when sitting down. Be careful not to take them off completely, or your feet can swell and cause you even more pain.
  4. Buy gel insoles.These insoles are narrower and shorter than those for other shoes, allowing them to be applied to the inside of heels without sticking out at the sides or either end.
  5. Try to walk less. When wearing platform heels or stiletto heels, the easiest option to save your feet from pain is to walk as little as possible. Carry moleskin with an adhesive side and apply it to the inside of your shoes on areas that rub.

Okay Ladies, now ....Grab your FAVORITE HEELS and lets STRUT the night away!

Six Ways to Be Incredibly Chic

I believe that every single woman is beautiful, and I’m not referring to inner beauty. The reason why so many women see themselves as ugly and inadequate is because society has come up with ridiculous definitions of beauty that only a small percentage of women are able to attain; and most of those only after the ever-so-popular “complete makeovers.” We have been led to believe that nature cheated us, and so we spend hundreds of dollars adding this and removing that because deep inside we really want to be gorgeous. Sisters, acceptance is the key. Making peace with what you do have and forgetting about what you don’t have is the first step towards developing a healthy self concept. Remember this simple rule: always look your best no matter where you’re going, because when a woman looks good on the outside it makes her feel good on the inside.
Dress for the occasion. Looking your best doesn’t mean that you need to be overdressed. There is a time and a place for every outfit. Learn to figure it out.
Know your size. Wearing clothing that is too big or too tight is hardly ever a good idea. Don’t be afraid to try on the garments you’re purchasing because in the end it can save you a lot of time and money.
Make it match. Although fashion these days allows the combination of different colors and fabric, you still need to make sure that what you’re wearing actually goes well together.
Choose your design. Not everything that is fashionable is appropriate for every figure. Pick outfits that are comfortable and at the same time enhance your silhouette.
Be aware of your age. Dressing according to your age will make you more attractive if you pay attention to details like color, fabric, and style.
Pay attention to the inside. It doesn’t matter how stunning you might look, if you carry around the extra baggage of unforgiveness, resentment, envy, prejudice and hatred, they will show up in your interactions with others.
