Secrets of Womens Designer Shoes Obsession
What is it about designer womens shoes that
keeps today's woman coming back for more? Is it the exquisite
detail-rich quality, or is it the bragging-rights luxury label
factor? It's an itch, it's a scratch, and if you have the fever,
you know what I'm talking about.
In fact, I once took half my savings and flew
into New York to make a pilgrimage to shop for womens designer
shoes at the Peter Fox boutique, just because.I had to! I'd been
lured into loving them by ads in Vogue for years. I wasn't going
to let the fact that I lived on the opposite coast of the United
States get in my way.
Fear of Flying to Buy Gucci, Prada and Bruno Magli
Ever since I can remember, whenever I
compliment someone on their fabulous and foxy little heels, it
usually turns out that they were acquired in New York or Paris or
Milan. Not being a jet setter myself, I’ve tried to learn
not to wince when I hear where those sexy heels were
acquired, but, you know, I'm human. As it is, womens designer
shoes can be really exclusive, hard to come by--and are coveted by
Pick a pair of womens designer shoes by a famous designer, there are Prada shoes,
Gucci shoes, Manolo Blahnik shoes, not to mention Bruno
Magli shoes, Ann Klein shoes and many more! Any or all of
these might be perfect to provide top-drawer fashions for our pampered and
manicured feet. Because if you are going to wear open toe designer shoes,
then your pedicure has to match the quality of your footwear!
Thankfully today you can buy many womens
designer shoes online, which eliminates the need for those pesky
airplane flights. Not to mention the fact that such flights
tend to wreak such havoc on our
skin, immune systems and our bank accounts!
womens designer shoes online also eliminates the cachet that true
jet set folks get from flying somewhere--to
shop as if they’re on a safari, hunting big game for the perfect
designer shoe trophy of their dreams. And for the rest of us,
well, we can snap up nice designer high heel shoes on sale
from eBay, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Frills, Flirting and Women's
There is no hiding the fact that men and
women alike have shoe "fetishes"--for different reasons. For
example, a woman tends to crave her shopping "fix" and then she
gussied up in flashy shoes that make her feel taller (and therefore
more powerful). She also gets the opportunity to show her
friends her new prized Gucci heels for spring. And with women....labels do
matter. Men may not know the ins & outs of designer womens shoes…but they do love to see flattering sexy 4 inch
Prada heels on the woman they love--or on the woman they
want to get to know better!
And the fact is, women’s designer shoes are
for flirting. These shoes are not comfortable by any stretch of the
imagination. But do they look 100% better than Birkenstocks? Duh!

Sizzle for Singles with Womens Designer
And by the way, a hugely important pick-up
tip for singles in the 2000’s: You can have a plain outfit on,
jeans no problem, but if you dress it up with the right
designer shoes for women, you
are ready to go anywhere, and you will look your best. Men notice
A male friend once mentioned that the sound of
women's heels on
pavement acted like a primal mating call, and made him turn his
head to look every time. As for men, I notice if they have
nice shoes on when I meet them. Every time! So remind your
guy friends that bargain basement shoes will not necessarily help
them to attract the girl of their dreams. Of course, in every
situation, charm goes a long way, and even if your shoes are not
designer, if they are tidy & smart, you will probably impress your
Our feet do the toughest job in our bodies,
holding us upright tirelessly every day. Don't force them into worn out shoes from four seasons ago,
instead dress them in a way that befits their status, and find
the best womens designer shoes to do the job––if that is what they
want. And if your feet are groaning, “Uh, no, actually we want a
break from all this high-heel business,” then get some Nike Shox
or Diesel trainer shoes for when you want to kick back.

happy, well-rested feet do all their razzle-dazzle-blingiddy-bling
