I am a woman,
so, therefore, I love shoes.

I am also a short woman,
so, therefore, I love high heels.

I admit it. I love shoes. I can’t get enough of them. Even the ones that smush my toes and give me blisters and make me bleed. I love those too.

Why do I love shoes? Why does any woman love shoes?

Shoes give women power. Shoes make women sexy and intimidating.

I saw this quote a while ago, I haven’t been able to forget it:

Every woman wants to feel strong and still be sexy. A simple black dress paired with a red pair of strappy sandals? Instant sex goddess. Business suit paired with knee high black boots? Instant raise. Shoes makes everything better. A woman hurt or scorned can be appeased by shoes. If a woman feels fat or ugly – it rarely shows on her feet…..she can stare at her feet in a pair of black stilettos and feel empowered.

So, here I am, sitting at my desk, desperately trying to find a band-aid to alleviate some of the pain in my feet, but I can’t help but smile. I am wearing the nicest shoes in the office today. and they look damn good.

  1. Yay for shoes! I had to comment because currently I am wearing a shirt that says “nice shoes.” btw, I just have to say I love your blog. It makes me laugh.
