The Quest for the Perfect Pair of Heels


I love to wear heels! I absolutely, positively LOVE to wear heels. Yes, I know the strain on my knees is there but I love to wear heels and I do so with wisdom.

Anyway, I’ve got a problem. I have my dressy heels and then I always have a pair of “everyday” heels. My everyday heels have given their all and they won’t last much longer. And I simply can’t find another pair to replace them!

I’ve looked everywhere and either the heels are too thin (not good for everyday walking) or the angle hurts my knees or the heels are just plain ugly. I would never wear an ugly shoe, so ugly heels are just out of the equation.

So I continue my quest for the perfect pair of everyday heels. Until then, I’m resigned to wearing flats—albeit very cute flats—but they just don’t have the same pizazz that a good pair of heels has.

To con-“sole” (he he) myself as I wear the flats while shopping for my perfect heels, I think about how noble my quest is…okay, it’s not noble at all. But, I do like noble quests, and because I like noble quests I enjoy the song “The Impossible Dream (The Quest).” Check out my version from my album As American As Jazz.

    Hilarious! I don’t think the word perfect and heels even go in the same sentence together…but you do wear them with flair!!!

      They always go in the same sentence for me…I don’t think I could live with heels. It would be a sad, sad world.

    I feel your pain Jillaine. Last fall I wore out two pair of my favorite dress shoes (one flats, one heels) walking to work from the bus stop. I now carry my dress shoes in a bag and change once I get there. I don’t know how practical my replacement heels are (they’re pretty tall) but they are adorable and comfortable. Good luck on your hunt.

      Thanks for the encouragement! What a great idea to switch from flats to heels. That would definitely prolong the life of the heels. So glad you did find a replacement pair.

      I will continue on my quest for the perfect pair…
