Life Is Better In Heels…


Theory No.: 025 - Life Is Better In Heels…

Imagine this… a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between being fab and drab, and it lies between the pit of woman's fears. This is the dimension of imagination or a lack there of. It is an area where there is no fashion forward people, no flair, just flat hair, jeans (no – not skinnies, not boyfriend, just jeans), and makeup free faces…A zone where everything is just bland… this is the area in which we call the No Fashion Zone…

Okay first things first, you may have guessed, but I’m a huge fan of the Twilight Zone. I absolutely love the show (the original series, not the remake that was done in the late 80’s/90’s). What I enjoy the most about the show is how the characters often found themselves in some alternate universe that made absolutely no sense based on their reality….

Funny thing is that, I can totally relate. You see I come from a place where things are always done certain way. The way a lady carries herself, the way she dressed. I’m originally from the South, so you get the picture… However now I am in a faraway place and I find myself walking into, let’s say, the office… and no one is dressed for success. No one is wearing lipstick, well maybe one lady – she gets it, oh and another that works in another office – yeah she gets it too.  However there’s a majority of folks that just don’t care about the way in which they present themselves. It doesn’t stop there, I go to the mall, to dinner, and the movies… you name it and the same thing. Just no fashion, no style, no inspiration for a woman like me.  

After a while of lacking inspiration, I thought to myself, “Maybe I’m getting too old for this”. I actually remember the day I found myself standing in front of the mirror saying, “oh well I guess this is it, the end of my fabulous life of playing dress up – I’m officially old.” From that point on, I found myself in a state of sadness. I would walk through the mall and see things that I loved and say to myself, oh well what’s the point? Seeing items online thinking, “Oh I would look fab in that, yet resigning myself to…”well maybe I’m too old for that”. What a dreadful place to be I tell you…

Then one day I woke up, literally, woke and grabbed a pair of shoes in haste as I hurried off to work. It was like magic!! I felt great, and there was nothing that could get me down. I asked myself what is going on. What’s different about today? I looked down at my feet and realized I was in heels!! I felt stylish, confident, and a little sexy even. I was able to get through the ups and downs of my day with a finesse and a smile. I tell ya, life is better in heels. Imagine what would happen if a red lip was added to that??

Note to self: Sometimes we find ourselves in a space that forces us to conform and adapt to our surroundings. We get caught up in becoming what others think we should be.  I’m here to tell you don’t conform to the standards of another. So what you’re over 4Oh, do what makes you happy. For me, it’s the heels baby!! Bottom line, don’t let anyone else define you!!!
