Following my last post on the photographers I decided to share with you this photo of me taken during the Milan fashion (yes because camera in the hand = photographer ;) The photo was actually taken by the girls of Luisa Via Roma, which was actually quite ironic in a way as I was at the same time taking pictures for their blog…
If you are wondering how did I do to survive the whole day on those heels… Well I didn’t! After my first day and first disillusion, I decided to join the crew of the “High heels bluffers” and carry a pairs of flats in my bag for emergency feet relief sessions.
I know what you are thinking… But who are those “High heels bluffers”, and where can one sees them? Well, they can been perceived during the fashion weeks, but not only, often hiding in little streets close their place of rendez-vous indulging in one of the most unspeakable rituals: The shoe switch!
Because the truth is that, of all the people you see wearing sky scraping high heels during the FWs, few of them really wear those things the whole day… Most of them (including me) perform “the switch”, in their car, taxi, or even in the street. What do you think… Fashion is all about illusion. And in this case, all about pretending that those heels are super comfortable! (yes… like walking on fire!) When in reality you just wish you could take them off and run barefoot in the grass like Laura from the Little House on The Prairie…
So why do women keep doing that to themselves one might ask… And so I say, why do men wear ties? Or better, who killed Marilyn? We will never know, and so be it…Anyway, don’t worry about me, these shoes were super comfortable ;)
