Summary of Chapter 27
I still have my feet on the ground; I just wear better shoes.– Oprah Winfrey
“Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life.” Although the source of this quotation is unknown, I feel sure that it resonates with many women besides me. In recent years it seems like we’re even more obsessed and passionate about shoes, from pumps and platform, to stilettos and strappy sandals. Just picture this: it’s a hot August day in New York City and the city is so quiet it seems like there isn’t another soul around. You feel a little left out, like everyone else is doing something –something really fun and exciting -without you.
What’s the solution? Head to the shoe department at Saks Fifth Avenue and suddenly it’s like you’re at a fabulous birthday party. The place is packed. I think it’s because you get an immediate, uplifting feeling when you’re in the shoe department.
Shoes are key accessories that can transform almost any outfit, turning it from ho-hum to dazzling in seconds. And no matter how much weight you gain or lose, your shoes still fit. (We’ve all got our “skinny jeans,” but I’ve never heard anyone say, “My skinny shoes.”)
