I blog about shoes. A lot. My own shoes, other people’s shoes, shoe style, fashion, and make fun of it all too. That means wherever I go (assuming people know who I am) they are looking at my shoes. And judging them.
Generally that’s totally fine with me, because I don’t really have bad shoes. And if someone thinks my shoes are bad…well…they’re just wrong.
Now the pressure is on though, because on April 17 my heels and I have a chance to attend the Chicago premier of “God Save My Shoes,” a documentary about women and their relationships with their heels.
I’ve never met the filmmaker, Julie Benasra, but I’m pretty sure she and I would hit it off.

Women love their heels in a way that blue jeans, cardigan sweaters and pony-tail holders will never know.
Shoes can change a life.
Tickets for the premier and red carpet after party are $75 and are going fast. Proceeds from the event benefit the Service Club of Chicago. And you know everyone will be in good shoes.
At least I now know how I’m spending my weekend; trying on outfits and shoes, looking for something that’s fabulous and eye catching, without being too over the top (by my standards). I’m sure I won’t be the only one there taking pictures, and if I end up on film, I’d like to look good. Feel free to send me suggestions because I’m already panicking.
Or maybe I should just skip my closet and go straight to the shops. Because you know that if nothing else, everyone will be looking at my shoes.
