Heels On The Block

From sneakers to slides, the fashion world has given its stamp of approval to “comfortable” shoes, and their latest recruit is the block high-heel sandal. Easy to walk the cobblestone streets of Paris in and elevated to boot, it’s a fabulous example of form-meets-function footwear. Street-style favorites Miroslava Duma, Caroline Issa and Evangelie Smyrniotaki (pictured above) pair their’s with everything from relaxed denim to tailored separates.

Twice a year, New York Fashion Week turns media attention to runways, bright lights, style heavy-hitters and of course, to-die-for collections.

And twice a year, the underlying story of these events is how those models manage to stay so thin, and whether their size is a reasonable idea of beauty.

My philosophy around taking care of my own body is pretty simple: I believe in eating more vegetables than French fries overall, drinking lots of water and sweating for at least 30 minutes a day, whether it’s from running or scrubbing the bathroom floor. I do not believe in consuming hard drugs or munching on cotton balls to curb hunger, two tactics of many that were described to fashion reporters this week.Choose fashion trends that boost your body confidenceChoose fashion trends that boost your body confidence
