So seriously, straight up seven up: how the fuck do women wear high heels with no stockings? GIVE ME A PRIMER, SOMEBODY.

Because I just tried to do that business with a pair of black pumps for not even an hour and I have - not even blisters. It’s like, Blisterthon II: Son of Blister on one foot and Blister Mania: Electric Boogaloo on the other.

Don’t they make, like, tiny sock things out of stocking material? Like those not-socks they give you at the shoe store when you don’t have socks. I dunno, though. I avoid the whole issue by wearing giant stompy boots. The last time I wore heels without stockings was the only time I’ve ever had blisters on the tops of my toes. D:

yeah but - I mean, do most women use them? Because I feel like those are, I dunno, training wheel versions of wearing heels. If I use the tiny sock things people will doubt my commitment to sparkle motion, is what I’m saying.

    Hairspray keeps your feet from sweating which cuts down on the slippage and chaffing inside the shoe.
