We Are Hot Chicks Wednesday: Woman's Best Friend

There's one thing that all men, short or tall, black or white, bizarre career or really bizarre career, can "thumbs up" agree on: A woman's happiness is proportionately related to her shoe collection. I mean, let's face it. Food, water, air, relationships, money, sex, career; all these things take a back seat to shoes in the mind of a female. I don't know what the closet arrangements are like for those readers out there that co-habitate, but if they're anything like mine, then some guys' clothes and collectibles have likely been discarded to make way for more freaking shoes. In my closet (which is in the guest room), I have about two-thirds of the wardrobe bar. My shirts are sandwiched between hanging devices stuffed with shoes. On the floor is a tiered, compartmentalized shelf full of shoes and the minimal floor space around it is layered with shoes as well. The top shelf? Shoe boxes. Labeled with identifiable nicknames, which apparently wasn't enough. She's now taking pictures of the shoes to put on the outside of said boxes, speeding up the IDing process. But enough about her footware. Let's look at someone elses. And by "someone elses," I mean something else.


Getting Ready



Kayla Paige is no dummy. She's well aware that a long day at the office is torture on the feet. That's why she prefers the sandal-style heel for that secretly comfortable, yet professional-looking shoe.


At the Office



Irina Voronina would outright disagree. For Voronina, your look means business. Therefore, she goes with the peep-toe heel as it obvioulsy sends a more serious message.



In the Classroom



Spencer Scott has her own beliefs. A day with the ruffians demands a bit more stability. Miss Scott, as the wee ones, address her, goes with the single-strap mid-level heel.



That way, when things get out of control, she can take matters into her own hands.



The Great Outdoors



Alana Cragin knows that a stroll with Mother Nature is the last place to cheat your feet, but seldom does she overlook fashion. Coordination isn't just a walk in the park; it takes practice.




Vanessa Doobrovo, however, does not see eye-to-eye with Miss Cragin. If she's going to be pounding the pavement, she'll look good doing so in a platform variety. Touche.


The Evening Unwind



Michelle Baena gets her relax on by the fireplace, stilettos and all.





Hannah Hilton, on the other hand, prefers the sofa,




while Sophie Howard opts for her favorite throw rug.




None shall be outdone by Aliya Wolf, though.



Miss Wolf seeks comfort in her kicks anywhere she chooses,



anytime she likes.


Shod For All Occasions



Gigi is a bit of an exception. She likes her feet protected in some form or another,



whether undressing,



lounging,





tidying up the kitchen,



or making a dash for a midnight snack.

That's right, fellas. Women know their shoes, and as indicated, you should, too.

Drop by next week when we talk about the delicate/knit cycle on the dryer, and other domestic intricacies. Toodles!

I had an aunt named Gigi. That's all I really have to offer except damn. Damn. Damn.
