Buying the right shoe makes all the difference in making it through the day pain-free. Buteven the best fits sometimes pinch or rub, making each step a wince-inducing experience. Enter Band-Aid’s friction stick, a purse-friendly solution for preventing the dreaded blister. Like the brand’s entire arsenal devoted to rescuing feet from footwear woes (we swear by their silicone blister-healing cushions too), the true genius of the product is that it actually works.
Giving shoppers their pick of heel height and colors/materials, the Made-to-Order Blahnik Boutique on Neiman Marcus’s site allows you to create a dream version of Manolo Blahnik’s BB (named for Bridgette Bardot). There are oh-so-many reasons to be excited about this service:
1) Always one of our favorite shoe designers, we’re not alone when we say it feels like wearing custom made since they are so comfortable on our feet—and now this?
2) We use the classic BB style in our photo shoots, thanks to how perfectly the pointy-toed stilettos pair with jeans.
3) You can get the look all in one place—check out our Fall styles on Neiman Marcus!
We recently received a lovely thank you note from a fan saying that our maternity jeans look great with heels. It revives the age old question: do all the stylish expectant moms out there (and there are so many of you) still like to add a little height in the 9 month journey to motherhood?
We have found that some women like only to be as comfortable as possible, choosing stretchy, forgiving attire and flat shoes, while others won’t sacrifice their fashion sensibility for even a trimester. It’s sort of like the doctor’s advice about running when you are pregnant – you should remain a runner if you have always been a runner. You don’t have to change who you are just because you are pregnant. Would you even recognize Victoria Beckham if she wasn’t wearing her remarkably high heels?
So the simple conclusion is, if you loved being in four inch Manolos before, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be in them when you’re expecting. If it becomes too much, you can always go down an inch or two.
