Quite The Feet

Is there anything more exciting than slipping into sandals in the springtime? Sandals that are were worth the wait? Think about it: handwoven textures, earthy hues, and chic ankle ties. A far cry from those blink-and-you-miss-’em plastic flops.

But, what about the scary stories we’ve heard about high heels being bad? Even the bootylicious – Beyonce Knowles, who’s known for her sexy fashion sense, was recently heard complaining about her high heels. It’s known fact that high heels can cause several ailments related to  knees, back and/or spine. And when it gets too much to handle, most people simply switch to flat shoes.

While flats are better since they relax your feet and don’t tire you down soon. But wearing total flats can be trouble. For starters, it kills the sex appeal that high heels bring in! But on serious note, moving around in ballerinas and flipflop can be bad. Although comfortable, it can cause foot ache, shooting pains in the shin, bunions, backaches and arthritis. But, did you know that walking in heels alter the center of gravity, training your legs to produce muscle especially in the calf and thighs thus toning them? The best bet here, is to wear different kinds of shoes with variable heel length at difference points in time. Absolute flats are bad and absolute skyscrapers are ‘no-no’, people tend to shuffle instead of walking. This ruins body posture, causing severe pain and not to forget end up ruining those beautiful shoes.

So, lets hit refresh with spring collection of fun, embellished stunners you can make statement in and say ‘bye-bye’ to pain. You’ll be glad you did when you’re scooping up compliments all season long. Here, we got few of our picks to help you style. Lets get those feet happy!

It’s Twirling Time

Now that it’s starting to warm up we’re packing up the cashmere sweaters and seeing a lot of empty space in our closet. Perhaps you’ve started spotting them under edgy moto jackets and flowy sweaters, but soon enough when the temperature rises, they will be paired with simply statement gladiators or wedges. What am I talking about? Dresses, obviously! Yep, thats right.

Buying a dress is really like buying a whole outfit, and ladies –  these outfits are too cute to be true! Day or night, flowing or fitted, this is for everyone. The Trend of the people. From popping prints to solid silks, take on the upcoming high temperatures with these low-grazing hemlines. We’ve pulled dresses that are all on sale (or not), to cover everything from work-day doldrums to dress-up occasions we can’t quite face. Because, style shouldn’t suffer just because we can’t function first thing in the morning.
