A case could be made that today’s topic is just another excuse to post a picture of “Lost” hottie, Josh Holloway.
And while I admit to nothing (a-hem), it was actually a quote he made in a recent issue of Britain's Star magazine that got me jump-started:
"I love it when a woman wears killer high heels,” he said. “They look amazing. Though at the same time you've got to wonder how they walk in them.”
First I’d like to say that I’m glad he has no first-hand experience in wearing in high heels. Because while they might be a turn-on for him on a woman, they are the opposite for me on a man!
But secondly, I’m totally with him on the “amazing” aspect. I’ve loved high heels my whole life, from test-drives in my mother’s heels to my earliest starter pairs, and then watching my collection grow in all directions from chunky heels to stilettos, from one inch to three inch, from black to red to aqua blue.
Not only do I think women look terrific in them, but they are my own personal confidence boosters. They give me height, make me feel like my weight is more distributed, and bestow on me this sort of grown-up magic, like I can--and will--take on the world.
Believe me, if one of my books is ever nominated for a Rita, you can go to the bank that I’ll show up in three inchers--and probably fall on my face walking up the stairs if my name is called.
Which is not to say I am a shoe-aholic. I spend much of my time in sneakers or barefoot. But whenever I’m looking at a social situation that gives me a moment’s hesitation, you don’t find me diving for cover as much as diving for my high heels...
How about you? Are you with Josh Holloway and me? (Oh, I loved saying that!) Or do you find high heels too uncomfortable or over-rated?
