HIGH HEEL COMFORT

I have been wearing high heels for many years and pretty much putting up with the pain.  The toes are smashed together in a triangle like the bow of a boat. My toes  are bent upward until I walk a few feet barefoot.

Pain Relief

A couple of years ago I discovered Vivian Lou Insoles for high heels which, are shown in the picture below.

The clear gel pad going from the arch to just shy of the heel back shifts your weight back. It moves your weight from the ball of your foot to the heel. It  more evenly distributes your weight over the whole foot.

Ice them up

Vivian Lou insoles help a great deal but the old ice trick makes high heels even more comfortable. A couple of years ago I wrote about this technique on my other site www.chicladies.org.  Recently I made a discovery that makes it even better. I was getting ready to go to a Vanity Club outing in Atalanta and had two new pairs of high heel pumps to wear.

I inserted the zip lock plastic bags with the corner deep into the toe of each shoe pushing it in with my finger. Make sure that the corner is all the way in.  Filled the bags about a third of the way full with water and put them in the freezer over night.

I did this three times on one shoe but the other needed a fourth time. I put them on in between to check the fit. When the water froze each night it expanded gently stretching the shoe a little each time. The high heels pictured above are satin but the ones I did multiple times were black kid and black patent leather.

Give it a try it really works!

HAVE WIG WILL TRAVEL

I travel every month to various places and most of the time bring Ms. Micki with me along with everything that she needs to be girly. Like any other crossdresser wigs are the number one item I pack on every trip. 

Staying in hotels has its advantages like room and maid service but some drawbacks also. Typically I leave the room in the morning as Duke doing guy stuff returning around 3:00pm to become Micki.

When I leave the room at around 6:00pm as Micki with my heels clicking down the hall hair and makeup perfect I definitely look different. It used to bother me a great deal that the maids would see my wig stands on the dresser which, is the only hint that Duke and Micki are sharing a room. I was worried they might tell other staff and snicker about a crossdresser in the room when they saw me as Duke but not so much any more.

I discovered these hangers on Amazon and tried them out on my last trip.

They go together quickly and disassemble quickly storing flat for shipping.

Maids don’t go into closets or open drawers so the wigs are out of site hanging in the closet. Wives traveling with crossdressers will appreciate the privacy also.

For help with packing a wig in your luggage so it looks great when you arrive see my March 2017 post https://mickifinn.com/2017/03/

Travel safely and have fun!
