It’s sometimes surprising where compliments come from.
Let me explain: Have you ever put on an outfit and been surprised by a compliment? Like, really? You like THAT? That’s what caught your eye out of this whole ensemble? Really? REALLY?
This recently happened to me with this outfit while in New York for fashion week….but the compliments were BIZARRE….and because they came from men. This outfit wasn’t overly sexy. It didn’t scream “LOOK AT ME! I NEED ATTENTION!” but yes, it was well thought out and planned to some degree. I fixed my hair, threw on a red lip, and was out the door not thinking a single thing. But can I say that THE MEN were really drawn to these booties. Not even five steps out of the hotel…first compliment. Stop at the corner….next compliment. Make it about 3 blocks down 5th….there’s another one. And maybe I should’ve expected it with red booties….but the fellas impressed me with their attention to shoes!
Who knew men were drawn to red shoes?!
35 years of dating and I still learn something new about men every damn day.
