In college my friends and I had a lot of crazy fun-filled nights. We would get dressed in our sexiest clothes, paint our face to the Gods, attempt to put on lashes, promptly give up on the lashes (maybe that was just me?), curl our hair, and make an absolute mess…all while pregaming. But once we were ready to head out the door, we’d put on our heels and the fun would stop there.
I’m not sure if that was the case for everyone in the group. But it was very true for me. Those things were painful. So, yes, while the nights out would be great, my mind would be on how uncomfortable it was to move, dance, or even stand.
Sidenote: Props to New York for providing seats to the little people (most clubs in DC only offer seating to VIP).
Years later I made a vow to never be so uncomfortable in a pair of heels that I had to walk with flip flops and hide it in bushes by the bar. So I switched to sandals and flat boots and was content for awhile. But, for me, an outfit for a night out is incomplete without heels. I’m 5’4″, I need the height to do something to these legs. Not to mention, I feel sexier, feistier, and more confident in heels. I desperately needed to find something that would provide the height, but also the comfort. In walked the booties…
