Passion for High Heels

May 23, 2013

I don’t know who invented the high heel, but all women owe him a lot.” Marilyn Monroe

For much of history women’s shoes were pretty much kept in the dark, hidden under petticoats, crinolines and long skirts. Ironically even though shoes were mostly hidden, they were and are the most revealing part of a woman’s attire. Shoes have always reflected the wearer’s status and economic position. The gold soled sandals of Roman empresses, red heeled pumps of the court of Louis XIV and sexy pumps from well known designers like Manolo Blahnik, all serve as calling cards of class and wealth.

Shoes don’t only reflect social history they are also a personal record of our lives. Mementos of special occasions, to preserve the past and to trigger memories. This is why it is so hard to discard of a pair of sexy shoes we love and adore, even if they become unwearable. This is also one of  the reasons so many of us have at least 30 or more pairs of shoes.

Buying a new pair of high heels is a little like doing a room makeover.

You buy a new lamp and all of a sudden the rest of the room looks shabby and you want to redecorate. It’s the same with heels. Step into your high heels, and you will feel compelled to throw off your sweatpants and sink into a bath full of fragrant bubbles, then you will want to get a pedicure and get your hair done. Viola, a beautiful new you emerges.

Ten reasons why women love shoes

October 3, 2011

Randy Bennett from Optimal Learning emailed the following article the other day to share on my blog, stating “I thought that kind of an article might be interesting to your visitors”.  Thank you Randy, your spot on.

The truth why women are in love with shoes. 

shop high heeled footwear for women

1. Variety – We women simply cannot wear the same shoe every day. We need change. Plus, our shoes need to match our outfits and our outfits need to match our activities and lifestyle. After all, you can’t wear open toe sandals if you are going hiking in the canyons now can you? Plus, variety is the spice of life.

2. Style – We want to look good. No, we want to look hot. No, we want to look comfortable. See what I mean? Th bottom line is that we need different styles for different looks.

3. A Good Deal – Women are born shoppers. It is a true talent and no true shopper can turn down a good deal on a pair of shoes. That is why discount shoe stores like DSW or Shoe Pavillion are so popular. No shoe shopper work her salt can resist a pair of Manolo Blahniks marked half-off.

4. Comfort (AKA High Heels vs. Falts) – High heel shoes look great, but let’s face it, they can really hurt the tootsies! Most women I know alternate between high heels and flats. You know what that means.. more shoes!

5. Durability – Well made shoes can last a lifetime. This is especially true if you do not wear them every day. As a result of this your shoes build up in your closet. Kinda like plaque on your teeth.

6. Trendy – Unlike that hot pink leather skirt you partied like it’s 1999 in, the shoes that you may have worn with it are still in fashion. In fact, Flashdance plastic jelly shoes have made a huge comeback. What a feeling!

7. Stability – As the years come and go, women’s clothing size may fluctuate. One year you may be a size 4 and then after a few years of stuffing krispy kreme donuts down your face, you may suddenly be a size 14. But guess what? Your shoe size will stay the same. Chances are if a woman is a size 8 shoe, she will stay a size 8. How great is that?!

8. Options – “Should I wear my 5 inch Marc Jacobs heels today, or my 2 inch Gucci loafers?” It’s a woman’s fundamental right to be able to make a choice on her own footwear. In order to make those choices, women need (you guessed it) many different shoes.

9. Collections – Some men collect playboy magazines. We women collect shoes. Enough said.

10. Friendship – If diamonds are a girl’s best friend than shoes are a woman’s best friend. Shoes will always be there for her. They will never shun her or treat her wrong. They will never try to steal her boyfriend or call her fat. They will never let her down. The bottom line is a women needs as many of these friends as she can get.

What a Woman Should Have

September 28, 2011

The following quotes for women are by Maya Angelou –


enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to.


something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour.


a youth she’s content to leave behind.

a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her old age.


a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra.


one friend who always makes her laugh… and one who lets her cry.


a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family.


eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal, that will make her guests feel honored.


a feeling of control over her destiny.
