How to walk in high heels...

...something I need to learn myself!

Shoes are such an important part of an outfit. They are what completes a look!
But why does it have to be so bloody difficult to walk in shoes with high heels?
Recently I went in to a shoe shop to get some normal black heels for a staff party, and my friend who was with me got me to try on skyscraper high stilettos. AS IF I COULD WALK IN SHOES LIKE THAT! I was staggering around in the shop with these horribly uncomfortable shoes on my feet, and my friend got herself a right laugh!

So, here are some tips that will hopefully help you, and myself to walk like a runway model in high heels... eventually.

1 Don't aim too high. 
Start off with low heels that are a bit chunkier, and work yourself up. Choosing a model with straps is also good, to make sure that the shoes sit properly on your feet and won't fall off. Be patient - you won't get there in a day.
2 Practise at home. 
Wearing your shoes in your house while doing household jobs is a great way of wearing them in.
3 Walk heel to toe. 
Never ever just balance on your toes while walking in high heels (unless you're standing on sand or grass). This is a classic mistake, that most women make.
4 Go for quality.
Don't buy cheap shopes with rubbish or non-existing soles. Investing in high quality shoes with spongy soles will definitely be worth it.
5 Be prepared. 
You don't want to end up with blisters on your feet after a few hours, so keep some gel pads such as Party Feet in your bag, along with some compeed plasters. Little tricks like this can really save the day.

Follow these steps, and you will soon be a pro at walking in high heels, and you won't feel as if you're walking on nails.
