We all love wearing high heels. We love the feel of them, the way they compliment our legs and the way they attract attention. We wear them for special occasions, for work or even just a day out. They are the perfect element for making an ordinary every day outfit transform into a jaw dropping eye catcher. But what about the pain?
They say that it’s painful to be beautiful and I think it’s safe to say that when it comes to wearing heels, that’s definitely the case. But how can we prevent, or even just lessen, the pain from wearing heels?
Here is a few ways to make wearing heels more bearable:
Using gel insoles will make a massive difference. It accompanies the ball of your foot and prevents your toes from crunching up as well as preventing your toes from sliding forward. Now these gel insoles should be available for purchase in your local supermarket and if you can’t find them, give amazon or ebay a peek.
Changing the way you walk will definitely help with the amount of pain you will end up with. Walking in a straight position will do the trick, so not bending your knees and keeping your back straight. Imagine a string pulling you up while you’re walking.
Take breaks. Sit down when you have the chance and don’t have to be standing. This will ease the the pain because you’re not putting all of your weight on the balls of your feet.
Choosing heel types that accommodate you best. Platforms are best for when you want to wear heels for a long period of time because of the thick base under your toes. That thick base cuts a little height off of the heel. So if you’re wearing 5 inch platforms, you’re really wearing 3 / 3.5 inch heels.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “Shopping”? Well all I can think of is what I’ll be trying on first. Shopping Malls can be so much fun if you’re out with your girlfriends, trying on every single dress you see until you find ‘the one’. But there comes a time when you just can’t be bothered to go out, or you can’t find anything that tickles your fancy. Or in this case with me, I usually find something I love but it’s not in my size or is too expensive. (Grrrr!)
But now there is a solution to this problem! (Da-da-da-daaa!!) Online shopping is one of the easiest and cheap ways to get that dress you’re absolutely drooling over. Yes some online shopping sites are dodgy, which is why I have found a trustworthy online shopping site that not only ships internationally, but has reasonable prices. Ever heard of Rebel Circus?
Rebel Circus is a fantastic online shopping site that sells vintage themed clothing. This does include shoes (did I mention that they are gorgeous shoes?) accessories, jewelry, you name it.
Here is an example of a dress that is purchasable on the site…

We all love formal events, it’s in our genes. But going casual is just sooo much less effort, nothing says comfort like a good pair of jeans and a hoodie. For years I’ve dreamt about the perfect outfit that could be worn as a formal and casual attire. After doing a little research, I’ve come across a perfect dress that you can easily wear just about ANYWHERE!
This dress does originally belong to Annabelle Fleur. Give her website a look: VIVALUXURY
However, since i just love this dress so much, I went ahead and looked for similar dresses to this one and found one that looks unbelievably similar (apart from a few things like length) and decided to share it with you guys. Just click here and you shall end up on The Iconic’s website where the dress is available for purchase.
To make this dress a formal attire, just add some gorgeous heels and some accessories. This dress alone can be worn as a casual attire. Another bonus; this could also be used for a beach dress! Ain’t that nifty??
Remember to be as creative as you possibly can and to experiment with all kinds of colors. Fashion is an art, show off your masterpiece.
Now and then a girl just needs to attend a formal dinner or party. It’s just..you know..a must. It makes us girls feel special and important. AND the best part; we get to put some fancy makeup on and play dress-up. Trying out a few dresses first is essential. However, finally finding the perfect dress, the one that compliments your body well and just makes you look down right sexy, now that is an amazing feeling. Here’s an example of a very sexy but very elegant dress. Perfect for those formal events…
To really make you stand out, have your hair in an updo. This will open up your neck and shoulders, complimenting your figure all the more. Accessorize!!! To top it all off, throw in a good pair of heels. Just remember that you need to keep timing in mind, how long are you going to be at this party? Will you be doing a lot of walking? If so, just have some cute flats on stand-by.

Now and then we all like to go out with our friends or family on a Friday night. Going to watch a movie with friends for example, or spending that lovely clear evening, with the stars shining oh so bright, with your beloved. So with that, the evening plans are settled. But what will you wear?! Almost every girl has this dilemma, but fear not! For we have a perfect date (or just a normal fun evening out) outfit for you. Red is sexy and elegant, blue is casual, white is classy, but black is all of the above. Every girl must have a special black number in their closet that they can wear to boost their confidence and to look great while flaunting your elegance.

Remember that you are gorgeous just the way you are and that you don’t need to change anything about yourself just to impress other people that barely knows you. So go on and flaunt your perfect self and don’t be afraid to try new styles, be creative!
We all have those days where you just want to stay home, make yourself a cup of your favorite beverage and settle down with a book or movie. Most people would say that the perfect outfit for a stay at home day is some sweatpants and a t-shirt that’s to sizes too big for you, and I must confess that i am one of those people, but sometimes you forgot to run an errand or have an unexpected guest showing up at your front door! So to avoid that terrible moment of embarrassment, here’s an example of a perfect stay at home outfit that looks cute and classy and won’t make you feel like crawling under a rock after being seen..
A comfy sweater and some old jeans (doesn’t have to be ripped) and any comfy shoes. If you want to make this outfit a little more classy then add heels and accessories.

Have fun with your style and be creative!
It’s that time of the year where you have to stop shopping for Summer outfits and start thinking about Winter…brrrrr! Of course Summer is not over yet so we can all still enjoy long days at the beach, delicious ice cream here and there, and the best part, of course, comfortable outfits that just screams Summer!
For a day at the beach or long strolls through parks, this is the outfit to wear. A beautiful flowing maxi dress with a comfy spaghetti strap top and don’t forget to accessorize 😉
