I wore my high heels yesterday. Doesn’t sound like anything too crazy, I know. Thing is, I hadn’t worn them in a while, even before I was let go from my job I had started wearing flats a lot. I forgot the feeling I get when I walk in heels: it’s almost exhilarating. I can sense a difference in the way people look at me, like they take me more seriously. Maybe my reaction yesterday is due in part to the fact that I’ve been unemployed for over a month, so I haven’t been dressing professionally for anything, I’ve been spending a lot of time in very casual and comfortable clothing. I’m usually not a fan of heels because they’re a pain to wear, but yesterday, I even wore them to the grocery store. And it felt nice.
