that is one thousand and two percent correct! brushing your hair when it’s wet can cause serious damage, as that’s when hair’s at its most fragile. your best bet is to use conditioner (duh, I know—but if you’re prone to oil or if you have fine hair, use it starting two inches away from the scalp) and then use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to untangle. your hair will thank you, je promise, and you won’t have that hideous halo of broken hair (that’s caused by damage caused by wet hair brushing, improper blowdrying, or overzealous color treatment).
my shoes are divided into the following categories: *mmmm, cozy: shoes like my cashmere Toms, Repetto ballet flats, my Rag & Bone combat boots. I can wear those for, like, a week straight. (not that I would. ew). *almost-all-day: shoes like my crazy platform Burberry booties and anything from Miu Miu. I can wear these almost all day and my feet won’t start hurting until, oh, 8 PM *inside shoes: I never endeavor to buy shoes that fall under these categories but these are shoes that I love but for some reason or other can’t walk in (like my YSL mohawk pumps, or the studded pair of Burberry Prorsums that I received as a gift from the designer). sigh. those shoes I tend to wear at work and never wear outside for fear or falling on my face. so, the short summation of my long-winded answer: it’s all about switching up your shoes. and padding! I love Dr. Scholl’s inserts and—this is extreme—during fashion month I’ll sometimes wrap my feet Black-Swan-style! may the high heeled force be with you, xo
