A Jay and Deb Production.
For the ladies in the peanut gallery, you probably remember playing dress up with your mom's high heel shoes.
I remember putting on my moms too big for me heels and teetering around the house. I loved the way the heels made me feel more like a grown up!
Sadly, this is an experience my girls can't get at home! Their only heels they wore were the plastic princess heels that they had as little girls (we call those clicky shoes for the noise they made on our hard wood floors).
Why have they not had the pleasure of wearing my high heeled shoes? That would be because this six foot tall mama doesn't own any high heel shoes.
So my girls must find their fun in the self serve type shoe stores. You know.....the kind that have all their shoes out on rack for you to try on? No pesky sales people laughing at your size 10 feet.
Ever since the girls were little I would let them try on a boat load of high heel shoes. I can't tell you how many times I have almost peed my pants laughing as they parade up and down the aisle in their frilly heels (they aren't funny unless they are super ugly). And it is only really funny if one of them falls (without snapping an ankle of course).
So my Tuesday Tribute is to self serve shoe stores. Without you my girls would have completely missed out on a very common girlhood tradition.
By the way......I try on high heel shoes and admire how good they make my legs look. Then a shopper walks by and I realize that I'm able to see the part in their hair so I kick them off and go back to trying on shoes without so much lift.
