Latinas and our tacones! It's one of those love-hate relationships that we can't abandon. I'm not going to lie, the human body wasn't desiged to walk on stilts, so wearing heels is never going to feel like stepping on clouds. But there are tricks you can employ to make them more comfortable. After all, nobody looks attractive as they grimace in pain, no matter if you are wearing Choo, Blahnik or Louboutin.Continue Reading >
I don't when or how or why it happened, but sometime over the course of the last few months it became totally acceptable to rock sweatpants to work. Look, I'm not complaining or anything. On the contrary, I'm pretty ecstatic. Thanks to joggers, a.k.a. fancy-schmancy tailored sweatpants, we no longer have to choose between looking chic and feeling comfy. We can finally have it all--at least as far as workplace fashion's concerned. Hallelujah!
This much can be said about Kim Kardashian: the woman knows how to work her naked curves. Now when it comes to actually dressing her hourglass figure, that's a different story entirely. The reality star has been a fashion victim so many times, I'm pretty sure she could launch a new fashion division for Life Alert. Honestly, I'm beginning to wonder whether she knows how to wear clothes at all. Take the skintight blush number she wore to the launch of her new fragrance last night. Let me just put it this way: It made her look like a certain part of the male anatomy. Yeah, it was that bad.
Ladies, we've all been there: you spend a solid amount of money (aka too much) on a nice pair of heels only for them to make your feet like they're on fire whenever you wear them--and then get all scratched up and scuffed just a few months later. Sigh.
But now, UK-based label The House of Borgezie is claiming to have created the "World's Most Comfortable" heel, called Borgezie Riviera Stainless Steel & Sterling Silver Stiletto. And not just that! The company is apparently so confident in the shoe, it's offering a 1,000-year warranty. Yes, 1,000 years as in THREE zeros! Say what?!
Nothing gets me more aggravated than buying a pair of gorgeous heels only to discover later that they're WAY too tight to actually wear. Unlike most women, I refuse to return a pair of beautiful pumps just because they put me in pain. Instead, I do everything possible to get those high heels to fit me nice and snug. If you have wide feet like me, or if your foot expanded a half size up after pregnancy, you might want to check out this useful tip for expanding your shoes. Trust me, it really works!
I think it's fair to say that most runway fashion trends aren't exactly practical. In fact, some of them are straight up ridiculous. Did you see the McDonald's inspired collection from Moschino's Milan Fashion Week show? That was just insane. But the new Adidas high-heeled sneakers takes impractical fashion to whole new level. Seriously, doesn't adding a heel defeat the entire purpose of wearing sneakers in the first place?Continue Reading >
It's the holiday season and that means pretty clothes and pretty heels. But what I'm really excited about is wearing pretty heels to festive parties. But sometimes a girl just doesn't want to suffer. I want to look cute without being in pain all night long. And I want stylish shoes that aren't just comfy when I sit. I want shoes I can literally dance around in. Cause that's what you do when you hit up a Latino holiday party. You DANCE!Continue Reading >
I swear guys can't handle squat. In fact, one loser who can't seem to get over his exes so he created a collection of women's shoes, 12 shoes for 12 Lovers inspired by 12 women he used to date. For each of Sebastin Errazuriz's (aka the ultra sensitive guy) beautiful high-heels comes a brief anecdote about the girl who inspired it. But I must warn you, as pretty as these shoes are some of the description behind them are NOT. Like "Gold Digger" Alison, the shoes you see here. Oh god! This dude needs to get a life and move on!Continue Reading >
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!Continue Reading >
The other night I was watching the latest episode of I Love Jenni, and was kind of impressed to see Chiquis working out with high heels on. She had on a pair of what looked like 6-inchers and was doing lunges while vacuuming at the same time. How Latina is that? And as crazy as it might sound, this is definitely NOT the first time I've heard of chicas exercising while wearing heels. It's supposedly a really effective way to tone up and intensify your work outs.Continue Reading >
