Dump The Heels and Wear Flats To Parties

Heels aren’t the only way to make your outfit look great.

According to an article in the New York Times Style section, flats with a touch of festive, make great alternatives.

Not that I want to pick a fight with the New York Times, but some women have to wear flats to parties. For many, they are the ONLY alternative to wearing heels that cause pain and imbalance.

What about having a stylish looking pair to slip into after having worn the heels that might have looked great when you walked in, but have now caused you to experience pain and discomfort that reminds one of childbirth or dental surgery. Sometimes both.

If heels are out of the question, get a pair of flats with some color or embellishment so you can dance the night away in.

Another tip would be to wear a dress or pants that are long enough to just be about an inch off the ground so that you seemingly float into the room as you will be so light on your feet being pain-free! Just do a Whoopi!

Whoopi Goldberg wore a ballgown to The Oscars with comfy combat boots, not torturous heels. I like her thinking.

Pssst…Overheard In The Dressing Room

“I spent a delicious half day shopping – in my own closet! – with Scarlet DeBease. She is a magician, transforming my well-known but not always well-worn clothes into amazing new outfits. She’s delightful to work with, clever, and practical. I highly recommend the therapeutic experience! It will give you a new ” look” on life.

So, I love thumbing through my outfits. Just so much fun thinking about what I’m going to wear that day. Have worn lots of them, and used your playful attitude to mix and match as well. The jacket I have that has leather trim has become a new favorite, after seeing how great it looks on me, with your additions to it.”  Liz VizzaExecutive Director Friends of the Public Garden
