Guest Blogger: Your Highness!

A High-Heeled Product Review
By Cynthia Lee (Guest Blogger)

Hi! And you have me again, that Cynthia for another blog post. Don't say I didn't warn you - please do not hate me for my silly pictures along the post! I am a nice person, really!! Not as dumb as you perceive based on my silly pictures! Enjoy!

Note: I actually had a longer version of this post but I was too busy gossiping online, I accidentally clear the entry off, this this is a re-write in a very sombre emotion. :(

The topic for today - MY LEGS HEELS.


How can any human species who wears bras not be intrigued with the supernatural power of a pair of killer heels? The BFF for any girls - good support bras, handbags and heels =D


My BFF named AldoFlokaka (RM468) which I wear 12 hours a day/5 days and a half a week =)

I am a mere 164cm. But. With my BFF, I am 168cm =) And now I have discovered a way to be a 170cm! Of the many types of heels, I love the 'Generation Stilettos'. And ladies have started wearing it way back in the 30's!

According to our friendly neighbourhood Wikipedia:
A stiletto heel is a long, thin heel found on some boots and shoes, usually for women. It is named after the stiletto dagger, the phrase being first recorded in the early 1930s. Stiletto heels may vary in length from 2.5 centimetres (1 inch) to 25 cm (10 inches) or more if a platform sole is used, and are sometimes defined as having a diameter at the ground of less than 1 cm (slightly less than half an inch).

The many tantalising stilettos with and without platforms

Don't you just love that slimming effect that heels can provide you with? There are many conundrums that wearing heels are bad for the postures and health and yada, yada, yada... Not looking good too is bad for a lifetime impression of being a lady! =P

I enjoy the joy of standing tall. I can't accept the fact that I am heard but not seen. Yes! I want to be seen and heard. And having people to pay attention to me. Of course that would require me to have a loud and clear voice, information in head for me to blurt out and such. And the confidence of doing all this stems from standing tall and stylishly amongst the spectators. And what better way to build the confidence than looking good in the highest heels! =D


Fake a taller and slender you with the aid of your BFF, the stilettos heels!


I am on heels 8 hours a day, sometimes more, with 3 hours dedicated to this =)


Yes, I love the attention! See how enthusiastic they are to see me? =P

Things You Can Do On Heels
(Which is quite a lot if you are a veteran =P)


Do the ballet | Strike a single leg swan pose | Humping Pole dancing perhaps?
Keep reading to find out where to buy those gorgeous heels Cynthia's wearing! ;)


The braver attempts while on heels.
Do not try this at home if you are not a seasoned high heeler!


Practise Makes A Perfect You In Heels

Fight the fear of wearing heels by first getting a pair of heels. To me, it's all about choosing the right pair for yourself to suit your character. And the level of comfort you can accept. Being comfortable and being paranoid of falling are two different categories please.

Comfortable simply means you do not feel like stepping on a 1000 nails while having to balance yourself. Or slipping out of the heels because the insole is made of some cheap glossy PVC surface. Being paranoid of falling simply means you are afraid of no particular reason despite the fact that you are remained seated while trying, and the height of the heels do not even reach anywhere higher than 1.5 inches.


Do not be turned off just because some hot models became lesser in hotness from falling off their heels.
It's all about practice and choosing the right pair for yourself.


A Barrage of Heels!

Recently, I got myself a pair of super-gorgeous Bandaged Heels from the garage barrage of shoes found in Fashion Barrage. If you have been reading my post in my own site or are a Friend of mine in Facebook, you would have noticed my super-duper-irritating-camwhore-like-nobody's business in my newly acquired heels =D Yes!! I am very happy indeed with the acquisition.


Look at my new members to the heel family!
It is 5 inches in height with a 1-inch thick frontal platform.

Now, get to know your heels and how it works. As high as it may sound, I am actually elevated in a lower steepness. Thus I do not have to perch as much, if that's how you call it =D. Anyway, it's hard to describe, and I have sketched it out instead.


A thicker platform heels give extra comfort as it is not too slope-y while giving you the desired height!


Without platform | With platform for the added comfort

Feed on some pictures of Fashion Barrage's collections which I managed to try on when I met up with the owner to get my heels and discuss this feature with her. The actual items seem much more tantalising than the catalogue pictures! I am not goin to cute and paste any pictures from her site for your viewing pleasure. Simply salivate on these real images which I managed to snap amidst having passers-by and diners in the McDonald's fast food outlet where we met. And yes! She does COD too to make sure you get the perfect pair in your size =D

For girls who can walk the talk, talk the walk, walk the walk, look at these super-immaculately-can-die-drooling-at-the-height heels from Fashion Barrage!


That Piece of Hunk Called Cognac - at 5.5 inches (or more?) height! I want!
This is the perfect piece that immediately lifted me to model's height at 171cm!


Here I 'Bling' To You Glam Jewel Studded Heels - at 4.0 inches! I want too!! Like a princess!


Whoa!! For the glama-rama divas who loves nothing but attention!!
I especially love the black sequinned stilettoes!


Double whoa! Look at the slim heel's tip! A 'sexinessity' for the daring ladies!
If you look closely, those are actually fur! Not just patterns, but furry details.

Tempted?
I am for sure =)
Click HERE and see if you are still lucky to own a pair of shoes of your size.
Gotta hurry as they sell fast!

I for sure look forward to own many more types of quirky stilettos. But for sure, I will not be coaxed into wearing this (pictured below). I may look crazy, but I am not THAT crazy.



Thank you!
I am so gonna miss writing again when YSK goes on marriage hiatus =(

Happy Shopping!
