Unless you're reenacting the first Thanksgiving...

Even if your job requires that you spend the majority of your workday standing up and moving around, surely you can find a less pilgrim-inspired form of footwear.

For those of you who value comfort over style, instead of half-assing a high-heel by wearing a shoe propped up by a child's building block, just get your trousers shortened and wear a pair of flats.

But if you're wearing these shoes because you don't know any better, please take a few sick days and book a trip to my skinny-heeled world. It's nice there. Yes, it takes a bit of practice to master our kind's strut, and sure, you have to avoid grates and the Johnny-I'm-so-importants on their company-paid cell phones who don't move out of the way so you can avoid a situation like the one below, but at the end of the day, it's a very good thing not to be wearing the same shoe as your Mother.

Like returning that "for emergencies only" credit card your Father gave you when you turned 18, moving on from the chunky heel is a very necessary part of growing up.

AMEN to that!! I have seen way too many girls wearing shoes like this, paired with something awful like whitish tights and a ill-fitting cheap suit. They also usually have no makeup and are wearing their still-wet hair in some plastic clip-up contraption. UGH.

When I first saw the picture I thought, "Hmm, now this is an odd fashion pic for Johanna, she must be way ahead of the curve." Good thing I read the text.
