Are these photos familiar? Did you ever steal your mom´s shoes when you were a kid and ramped like a grown up? Or did you ever catch your little girl doing the same?
I couldn´t help but smile widely upon seeing these photos of Heather. Her excitement for trying on her mom´s shoes and that look on her face as she strutted them across the room. Now, that´s marvelous.
Another reason why I´m still smiling is that she brought back memories from my childhood, during the time when I was doing exactly the same thing – stealing my mom´s high heels.
But while Heather´s adventure seemed encouraged, mine was a tip-toe game. I´d sneak into my parents´room when I knew they weren´t around, I´d open my mom´s closet and take her very high heels shoes, I imagine about four inches high, slipped on them, ramp back and forth with my hands waving as if doing a beauty contest. For how many times, I hurt my ankles. I was four.
In retrospect, I had no idea those attempts I did on my mom´s shoes was a sign I´d be crazy on shoes when I grow up, and that I´d love fashion so much. Now I basically know what to expect of Heather once she turns a lady.
