I don’t mean this as a compliment,not the usual DROP-DEAD-GORGEOUS, but rather I am talking about falling of your stilettos and bashing your head, just cos you want to look HOT IN HEELS. Okay, I have to admit that I am bit jealous that I can’t really pull the heels shebang, but that’s all thanks to my genes that puts me on 5’11, model tall....which would have been okay if I were a model or a basketballer, not just plain ME!
Don’t get me wrong, heels are classy and make you walk with the grace and elegance of a cat, but what on earth possesses some ladies to wear heels they cannot walk with, I will never know. I was just looking out my office window and noticed two well dressed ladies with their very impractical office shoes, heels you should only see on a runway of a fashion show, and trust naija with our bad roads, they were both trekking , and you could almost feel their pain as they trekked, then one of them tripped and would have fallen twice, off the shoe(1) and on the ground(2). I almost laughed because I had seen one very fine lady in my neighbourhood over the weekend, really strutting her stuff in heels, she looked so graceful and elegant, and I was soooooo green with envy. So these ladies falling off their shoes today would have made me feel better (in a sadistic way) about not being that into heels. We all want to be hot and sexy, but do we have to fall of our shoes, twist our ankles, or walk like morons in that quest? If you can’t walk elegantly like that lady in my neighbourhood when you wear heels, then DONT! A lot of my friends are going to read this and say SHUT UP GIRL!, because they know i should not be giving fashion advice, because I dress for comfort. I am the kinda gal who just can’t wait to get out of stuffy office clothes, put on her shorts and tank tops, or wear my jeans, some nice form hugging top, I want to be able to wear nice trendy flat soled sandals, wear sneakers and only dress up when i absolutely have to.
Maybe if I were shorter, I would think differently, maybe I am just consoling myself because I love that casual girl next door look, maybe I just have bad belle because that my neighbourhood lady looked damn fine in those heels, or maybe I am just bored and I need a vacation and should not be working today, but for whatever reason I wrote this piece, it doesn’t matter since you read it to the end!
Have a great new week, wonder who we thank on Mondays since we only thank God on Fridays.
