The first (and last!) time I tried out for the track team at school I fell flat on my face. I finally had to stop wearing heels even as an adult because of the many times I tripped on them. My knees are a battlefield of scars. I rejoiced when the late 90s arrived and chunky heels became fashionable, but I only fell down slightly less regularly. My 9th grade students still speak with awe and astonishment about the time I tripped on a backpack and landed in a terrible face-plant, having thrown my brand new computer across the room and into a cinderblock wall. I slipped and fell straight onto my back once in the school courtyard, my water bottle, pencils, car keys and papers flying all over, causing the lone student passing through to hesitate, wondering if he should help me or pretend for both our sakes that he didn’t see me. My husband covered his face in shame earlier this year when I tripped into a shelf of candles at Bath and Body Works and knocked them onto the floor where they shattered into smithereens.
You get the idea?
So when Sands Leavitt releases a sexy dress like this one, I wear it with delight . I also figure that in Kenadee Cole’s beautiful Inferno Heels at The Secret Affair, I can walk around knowing that I will not fall down, run into anyone or anything, or end up bleeding. In real life I would be eyeing those stairs with trepidation.
