If you've ever used PicMonkey to edit your photos, you probably know about the slimming filter. It makes the photo narrower, thus creating the illusion that you're slimmer and taller. After switching to Lightroom to edit my photos I pretty much stopped retouching my middle section and just publishing the photos as they are (yeah, okay I still soften the skin but really, who wants to look at those blemishes - yikes!). It's been about a year since I switched and although I am happy with my photos, I'm still not too in love with my existing middle section, often made worse by my terrible posture. And so, I've been sucking in my tummy for photos, doing some clever cropping, and substituting breads with vegetables... but it's not always enough.
I think to myself over and over again, what I really need is to wear heels more often, but that's impossible because I live in a city covered in chunky cobblestones. Heels make your legs look longer, improve your posture, make you taller, perk up your butt, tone your thighs... the benefits are endless! But, unfortunately, I've seen so many women twist their ankles, break their shoes, and straight up fall on their faces that the very idea of even trying a heel outside makes me cringe.
The limitations that come with being an average height female have been a constant cause for anxiety when shopping or getting dressed... until now! I know, that sounded cheesy, but I'm being dead serious. I wasn't paid to write this, I just got to try the products for free and now I'm super excited to share my discovery with everyone else. Surely this is exactly the kind of accessory women everywhere would love to know about! Although this has already been shared on some great blogs like Career Girl Daily and Man Repeller, I figure my opinion is going to help someone out there!
I discovered Invisible Heels while browsing Instagram, as I usually do when waiting for the tram or walking up the five floors to my apartment. What first caught my eye was their brightly colored packaging. As I scrolled through their feed I knew I had to try this product. Instant height? Fits all shoe sizes? I get all the benefits of high heels while still wearing sneakers? Sign me up right now. And so, after a quick conversation down in the DM, Invisible Heels sent me a lovely package with three heel sizes: 3/4 inch, 1.5 inch, 2 inch. So far, the 1.5 inch are my favorite because they fit in most of my sneakers and give a truly noticeable lift. Just like wearing high heel shoes, these babies improve my posture and give me that "confident & bitchy" walk I miss so much. Ha!
