This thread totally cracks me up cuz I dressed to the nines for decades in Texas and wouldn't leave the house if my clothes, underwear and nail polish didn't match!!! Now I shovel snow in bots and shorts. Not to mention feeding the sheep or hiking! Yes, shorts can work with hiking boots! But, Vermonters tend to do "what works" and we don't pay much attention to what Vogue recommends. However, I find nothing sexier than a man in a suit! Maybe cuz I don't see it anymore. As for me?? Under my practical VT clothes I've got Victorias Secret and for my own fun, I toss on those 5" spikes at night all for me!

You have a point. I did that once. BTW, I don't think I ever wore those shoes again.

It would be nice if women could get a tax deduction for buying high heels.

It would be even nicer if the shoes came with a matching balancing pole.

Many moons ago when I wore high heels, I attracted the kind of men who like women in high heels, and not just in the initial stages of dating.

When I met my husband, I expressed closer to my current style: Clean, unusual/funky (what I sometimes describe as, "from another century and/or another planet"), and with no heels or makeup. He was attracted to me looking the way I feel most comfortable. That felt honest to me.

Especially since both of us have the same reaction to the thought of kissing while either kisser wears lipstick: Ewwwwwww! :-p

My husband fell in love with the fact that I was a mountain biker at the time when not many other women were, moreso than my fashion. I am sure he'd like me to wear some heels now and then though. But I think he's pretty happy with my choice of activities over my choice of attire. More sustainable...

You don't often see such brutally honest statements about woman's motives in mate selection.
