Okay, let’s have a little girl talk.
I currently have two types of high heels. Those I wear “Out” and those I wear “In”. “In” have a higher heel as I am only required to walk from the closet to the bed. I can walk as
slow sexy as I want. And now that I’m 20 pounds from my goal weight, I no longer look like a flustered hen and I have more fun in them.
“Out” or everyday heels are more of the 2-3 inch variety because I value unbroken ankles.
So let’s talk about the everyday heel.
I don’t know how to purchase heels that fit so I can actually walk in them. All the pairs I’ve bought in the last year are too big and fall off my biological heels as if I’m walking in my mom’s shoes. Then, as the shoes fall off, I scuffle to keep from losing them completely. Add my concentration not to fall and I’m just a mess. I might as well just wear flats and forget the whole thing because if you cannot walk confidently in heels its over.
When I bought the shoes, they fit, I think. I tried different sizes and bought the size that felt right, but maybe that’s the problem. Should they be too small when I buy them? I also have narrow heels (the body part), so could that be the problem?
My question is, How do you fit a heel? Do you get a half size smaller to anticipate slippage? Is there a trick? Is there a secret? Did I miss that day in girl school?
Next item. Under eye bags.
Over the weekend, I bought some Preparation H. Stress and little sleep have prompted steamer trunk-like bags under my eyes and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read the Prep H trick in Cosmo or other glamour magazines.
Tat didn’t believe me. She just laughed the entire time thinking my explanation a cover for some other deep burning desire. I swore up and down and all over town that as a photographer she, of all people, should know this trick. I willingly took the jokes about ass pain and perhaps more appropriate places to apply said cream all night long because I KNEW IT WOULD WORK, damn them.
It didn’t work. I ended up with shinny, oily looking bags and a little redness from the mineral oil.
So, Cosmo lies. And I was just going to try the “Keep Him Guessing in Bed” and “How to Give a Good Blow Job” thing. What am I going to do now?
And, to make matters worse, I’m having lasik surgery done in SF when I’m home so I never have to wear my 3″ thick glasses again. I have to figure out this bag thing before I no longer hide behind lenses.
Advice, please. I have 22 days before America, Land of the High Heel, and a credit cards to burn. I want tried and true words of wisdom. What works for you?
