5 Crazy things Latinas can do in heels better than anyone!

If you're struggling with overspending, wearing high-heels might just be your answer. Sounds crazy right? But according to researchers at Brigham Young University, wearing tacones triggers the balance sensation causing you to spend less. Basically balance has the power to influence your actions and for some reason helps you make smarter decisions. I'm not sure I believe all that, but I really don't need another excuse to wear high heels. In fact, most Latinas don't need any kind of excuse to slip on their highest tacones. You'd be surprised how often and under what circumstances we'd chose to wear them!

Wearing high heels for some Latinas is like second nature. They wear them so often they can't even imagine walking out of the door without them and that means wearing them everywhere from the hair salon to even the supermarket. No joke! Here are five crazy things a lot of Latinas prefer to do in their heels!

During sex:  I think just about every woman out there has tried having sex in sky-high heels, but Latinas definitely take it to the next level. Seriously, I know chicas that have purchased specific stilettos JUST for the bedroom. And I have yet to hear a man complain!

While grocery shopping: Back in the day you couldn't catch my abuelita Celeste anywhere not rocking a pair of tacones. The woman used to wear them all the time, even grocery shopping. How fabulous is that?

At the hair salon: Whenever I hit up my local Dominican salon to get a fresh blow-out or wash and set, I'm always so impressed by the number of women that come in there wearing high heels. It could be 10 o'clock on a Saturday morning, and they'll still come decked in heels, a cute outfit, and bright red lips.

At the kids' school: My mother definitely wasn't one of them, but I remember when I was growing up always seeing my friends' Latina moms pick them up from school in high heels. It didn't matter if they had just come home from a long day of work, if they were pregnant, or even stay-at-home moms, they still showed up at 3 p.m. with their hair done and their high heels ready to pick up their hijitos. Too cute!

While driving: My mom has a Dominican friend who literally can't drive without her tacones. She just doesn't feel comfortable without them. It's to the point where she has extra pairs of heels in her car, in case the one she has on that day starts to bother her. Mind you, she's a GREAT driver!
