Tonight I witnessed something that I see quite often, but never thought to remark upon until today. On my way home from karaoke, there was a limousine waiting outside of McDonald’s. Three young women come out with McD’s bags in their hands, short strappy dresses, 3″ or 4″ heels and no coats… RUNNING back to the limo. I’ll give them the “I’m young and I’m showing off” factor, but really? The heels? No coat? Did common sense stay in the limo? Their attempt at self-preservation was laughable, especially as they drank cold soda. How contrary!
Then, there was a woman that walked on the subway with her pink 4+” heels that she was struggling to remain standing in. She was quite literally wobbling. Even from where I sat, it was clear that the shoes were too large for her, like she’d borrowed her mother’s shoes to “try on”. When I say they were pink, it was HOT pink with rhinestones at the heel. It was a paltry attempt at looking cute, at best. At the end of these two encounters this evening, I’m rather in the mood to talk about… HEELS.
There is no doubt that heels look magnificent on a woman and have the capability of stretching their legs into kingdom come. Despite being a contraption contrived by men, they look sexy. Certain women have the ability to wear those super high heels and walk in them comfortably and with finesse. The rest of women out there are merely posers, attempting to look cute but making a fool of themselves as they struggle to remain standing. Seriously, ladies — I don’t care if your heels are daytime “work” heels or if they are nighttime “party” heels, you need to pick shoes that you can actually WALK in. Or bring a change of flats. Something. Unless you are walking short distances or not at all, you have no business being in those suckers. If you want to rock 4″ or 5″ heels you have no intention of walking around in the street in, keep them for the bedroom. Prance around in them in your lingerie and keep them on as you’re on your back… but do me a personal favor. Please.
Your consideration is much appreciated. SMH. ***PSA over***
