There is something truly wonderful about wearing high heels. They make you stand taller (so you can tower over your frienemies), and they generally force better posture. I came across this wonderful Racked article called, “The Male-Dominated, Power-Hungry History of High Heels”, which goes in depth about the origin of high heels – noting the air of regality, confidence and dominance that presupposed the style. It was an enjoyable read and really reinforced my sentiments and justifications for wearing primarily-impractical footwear on special days. Even Louis XIV had days where he needed a little boost in confidence 😉
Some of my colleagues poke fun at me on my high heel days, “Oh! TK’s wearing her super heels again…” Well boys, I doubt any of you have woken up with the confidence that you could make it through a day wearing 5 inch Acne boots with unparalleled grace and tenacity.
I do, on the regular.
