A Retail Therapy and tales about high heels

My weekend started on hubby and I planned for a treat to ourselves...yeay! We went for a retail therapy ! Not because we are in a doom mood or what, but we just love shopping..Yes both of us!..huh Thank God.
I didn't plan to buy anything initially but ended up buying 2 pairs of shoes...emm comfort buys? Anyway it has been a long time since I got my new pair of shoes...almost 6 months ago ...Although these are not designer shoes but they look pretty and feminine..especially the one with the back strap. According to high fashion shoe websites like Jimmy Choo and Gucci, a "low heels" is considered less than 6 cm (2.5 inches), while 6 centimeters to 8.5 centimeters (3.5 inches) heels are considered "mid heels," and anything over 8.5 centimeters is considered a "high heel"
So I think mine considered as "mid heels"...heheheh hopefully I didn't get backache after wearing them.

So Ladies out there here are some reasons for you to wear and not to wear high heels:

Reasons for wearing high heels, which are almost exclusively aesthetic, include:

-they change the angle of the foot with respect to the lower leg, which accentuates the appearance of calves
-they change the wearer's posture, requiring a more upright carriage and altering the gait in what is often considered a seductive fashion.
-they make the wearer appear taller
-they cause the wearer's legs to look longer
-they make the foot appear smaller
-they make the wearer's glutial muscles more defined while wearing tight pants

Reasons for not wearing high heels include:

-they can cause foot pain
-they can create foot deformities, including hammertoes and bunions
-they can cause an unsteady gait
-they can shorten the wearer's stride
-they can render the wearer unable to run

-The altered forces at the knee caused by walking in high heels, may predispose to degenerative changes in the knee joint.

So make you own judgement...heheheh for me I'll still go for high heel if I feel like to look feminine and confident...but most of the time I have to opt for low heels because of my job and my kids need me to rush here and there

Back to my retail therapy...hubby also got him a few shirts, T-shirt and pants. He likes those from East India because the quality of the material and quite a reasonable price. Psst...I chosed that shirt (the one with yellow and green pastle colour..from Bonia)..isn't it nice? After 4 hours at the shopping mall we went to meet up with my dear friend cum my blogging guru...Farah! having some ice cream and chit chat. Oh kids?? hehehhe I left them with my helper. Kesian but if I bring them won't be a retail therapy. Never mind we'll bring them for a holiday next month...
Today I had a meeting in the morning..luckily it finished early and I still have half day to spend with my kids before I start my working days tomorrow.

Nat...hehhehe, even I'm tall, I still love wearing high heels(the one =3") that makes me 5'10"!..makes me feel so feminine, confident and sophisticated..ohh woman..Luckily my Syahyang is taller than that!

BTW, the usage of proper shoes@heels at proper place/time/occasion will definitely safe the trouble.

Have a gr8 w/end even if you have to work;)
