  2. It's 6:15, the alarm will be going off in about 15 minutes. But I'm already awake, my husband had to leave earlier than normal for work, so I start my day. Once I'm on my feet, I light a cigarette, just like I do every morning. Then I find my way to the kitchen, park the lit cigarette between my lips, and prepare the coffee, just like I do every day. But, SHIT! I forgot to get coffee yesterday. Cigarettes and coffee are two things I never run out of. What am I going to do? It's early, I don't have to be anywhere in particular today. Julie, my sister, visiting from Germany, is not yet awak
  3. 11 Tricks to Wearing High Heels Without Pain. It's safe to say that wearing heels isn't always a walk in the park. Sore ankles and achy arches are anything but ideal. Yet, women still do it on a daily basis. I mean, I can't blame all the heel-wearing ladies out there, because they do look fabulous and heels can totally take an outfit to the next level. However, it does suck to be in excruciating pain before you've even made it to work or an event. The good news? There are tricks to wearing heels the right way. I know it seems impossible to actually surviv

    Clear Heels

    I'll wear them with jeans or slacks, but not with dresses or skirts.
  5. How do you feel about them? Some say they are stripper shoes, but on the other hand, they go with just about anything.
  6. Peep-toe pumps, with 3" heels.
  7. I travel from Texas to Germany once or twice a year. A pair of peep-toe pumps and a pair of peep-toe slip-on flats both go with me. I wear the heels until I'm through security, then they come off and the flats come on until I'm about to land in Germany. Then the flats come off and the heels come back on.
  8. Watch the placement of the high heel in relation to the rest of the shoe. If it's under the heel of your foot (shoe on the left), it will be more stable. If it's behind the heel of your foot (shoe on the right), it will be less stable.
  9. I had a pair of these, well, almost. They were black patent leather, peep-toes, and had 6" metal tipped heels. I sure wish I had them back, or at least knew where I could find them today. The metal heels were AWESOME! People heard me coming, very attention getting, and never had to replace the rubber heel tips. I also wish I had my original Candie's back. Remember these?
  10. I like, I own a few. But they're mostly evening wear.
  11. Absolutely not! I'd stick with something more business-like; pumps, somewhere around 3" heels, closed toes, and no bright colors. Same as in the office. But if the office has an evening social, I'd definitely wear stilettos or platforms.

    They did take a bit of getting used to. After wearing heels almost daily my entire adult life, my soles were used to feeling the ground, which lacked when I started wearing platforms. The hose vs. no-hose thing is just for pumps. If the platforms are slingbacks or slides, it doesn't matter.
  13. when I was younger, I used to be able to wear 6" stilettos without platforms. At 63, those days are long over. If it's over 4", I need the platforms. I consider myself blessed that I can still wear heels.
  14. My shoes come off at the door, just as all visitors' shoes do. But even if I wore shoes in the house, I think I'd stick to flats in the kitchen.
  15. I was a flight attendant, and it was downright expected that we wear heels anytime we were in uniform and in public, or on the plane during ground operations. Once we took off and up until we were about to land, we were able to slip into flats for the flight.
