I read an article today about a man who took his daughter prom shoe shopping. Actually, he took his whole family. Needless to say, his candid observations of his wife and two daughters shopping were humorous, to say the least. At first, he wasn’t exactly keen on the experience and likened his wife and daughters to lionesses on the hunt. In the midst of his attempt to reconcile the whole process, however, he had an epiphany:
If clothes make the man, then surely shoes make the woman. And with the perfect pair of heels on her feet, my daughter was ready to make her mark that night, literally putting her best foot forward. Sometimes it’s really worth it to pull out all the stops instead of finding ways to do things on a shoestring, even in these difficult economic times. And a senior prom is something you remember forever.
The author’s conclusion reminded me that sometimes you do have to treat yourself (or, in his case, someone you love). When once-in-a-lifetime opportunities arise, there’s no question you’ll remember them for the rest of your life. The real question is: will you celebrate or regret them? Though shoes may be a small part of the whole experience, they are an important piece to completing the entire picture.
Remember: shoes make the woman. Need help finding the perfect pair? Shoefly is here.
