Tip Of The Day: Don’t Wear Band-Aids and High Heels

While out on the town last night, I noticed a girl wearing a cute striped wrap dress and pink stilettos so tall they were worthy of Carrie Bradshaw. This outfit would have received my nod of approval, and I would have returned to sipping my beer, had I not then noticed the band-aids.

The girl had placed a band-aid on the back of each ankle, right above the shoe-line. Presumably she did this to keep her shoes from rubbing, which would have been fine if the band-aids had been hidden inside her shoes. But they were quite obviously there. The one on her left ankle was even half falling off. Nothing says classy like a band-aid dragging behind you. At least they were nude-colored, but as anyone who has ever worn band-aids knows, they don’t exactly blend into the skin.

Ladies, this is another case of when not to wear high heels. Please, if you just can’t leave those cute heels at home and must wear band-aids in order to survive, at least wear pants!
