A Few of My Favourite Things: Dresses and Heels

I’m a girly girl.

There, I said it. Sometimes I have problems admitting it, because it seems a little weak. And I’m not weak. I like to inline skate long distances. I love to cardio box. I like to debate a point. I love to win.

But the girly girl in me takes over when there are dresses and heels in my vicinity. I don’t own many: maybe just three good party dresses and three pairs of nice heels. But I love it when I get a chance to wear them.

Dressing up lifts my spirits, and makes me feel youthful (with the big 4-0 approaching–in 2012–feeling youthful is a very, very good thing). I’m not saying I’d happily go grocery shopping in heels–that’s when I break out the running shoes–but fashion can be so much fun. Life is short. Play it up!

  2. I love that dress!!!

    1. Merci beaucoup. 😉

  3. Very fetching photo! (I stumbled across this while searching for “Dear Friend I’ve Never Met”)

  4. You & I are SO much alike! 🙂

  5. Heather,

    For what it’s worth, I wouldn’t worry too much about being a girly girl. You look absolutely gorgeous in that dress and heels. And who says you need a dress and heels to look that great anyway?

    1. Hey Rick,
      Thanks for being so sweet.

  6. wow! hot shoes!
    how cute are you??
    I think girly girls who have non-girly girl tendencies are way hot.

  7. Having seen what happened when you saw the Jimmy Choo store in NYC, You do have a weakness for these things. I’d never seen someone lick a store window before……

    1. I did not!! Did I? I might have gotten lost in the moment….;-D

  8. As I have said before..you look very cute.. 🙂
    I agree with you..dressing up really lifts our spirit, increases our energy and makes us feel youthful…
    I am still young at 23..but I miss those teenage days…
    and when I will be 40, I am sure I will miss these days 🙂

  9. u look cute.
    😉

  10. I must agree with Lisa. You do look so very pretty, Heather. 🙂 …and I as well have little time for dress up, maybe that will be my new year resolution, to spend more time on me. Thanks. 🙂

    1. 80 percent of my life is spent in sweatshirts and running shoes–so I look forward to finding more dress up time, too. If we ever meet in person we should go out in little
      black dresses 😉

  11. You look beautiful being a girly girl Lady Heather…and that dress, as well as this photo of you, is one of my favorites.
    You look smashingly-take-our-breath-away-gorgeous!!!
    Really. You do.
    See you soon on the RB (((hugs)))

    1. Aw, thanks –that’s some compliment!

  12. If I looked as beautiful as you do in dresses and heels, I’d never wear anything else!
    And I’ll be turning 50 in 2013. It doesn’t bother me. I spend too much time chasing my almost 6 year old kid, and I wouldn’t go backwards for anything.
