Describe yourself in five words or less. We’ve all been there. The obligatory interview question. We’ve all rehearsed the answer. Naming a blog is like that. How do you pull in an audience in just a couple words? How do you create an identity in a phrase? Not just an identity, but one you will submit for public acceptance or scrutiny. Like your favorite pair of stilettos, you recognize it as soon as you step into it.
Life in Stilettos is not just about shoes. It is about the life you live in the shoes you choose. Life in Stilettos is about the way a great pair of shoes makes you feel. Sky high pumps or ballet flats, knee high stacked heel boots or classic Chucks; your favorite pair of shoes will always lift your spirits. You walk a little prouder, hold your head a little higher, pull your shoulders back and stand a little straighter.
My mom is a great inspiration to the title, and to my love of shoes. She was the woman who taught me that, putting name brands and high price tags aside, style is about the clothes that make you feel incredibly in your own skin. Style isn’t about anyone but the woman wearing her clothes, her own signature look. When you forget the feeling of putting on the perfect dress or pair of jeans that make you feel the most fabulous you; you begin to forget how to simply feel good about yourself. Slipping on a terrific pair of shoes can give you the feeling of conquering the day.
Life in Stilettos isn’t about the latest fashion trend or the hottest designer of the moment- those things are fleeting- this blog is about what embracing your style brings into your life. It’s about stepping into an amazing pair of shoes, and knowing you will take them wherever you want to go. The shoes might give you the little confidence boost you need after a hard week; but it’s up to you what life you will lead in the soles at your feet.
Life in Stilettos is a nod to the living art we call fashion, and a tribute to the women who understand that while we are more than the treasured stilettos at our feet, they do give us that boost of a few inches that just might change the world.
