Dress for Success.

There’s nothing I love more than a 5” platform pair of heels, but if I ever had to run for my life in my Steve Maddens, I’d be screwed.  I’ll never forget the time my fiancé and I went for a nature walk on a romantic weekend and I tried to pull out some booties with a little heel.  He told me, “If you don’t pull out your Timberlands and stop playing.”  You can look sexy and still be prepared for all kinds of situations.  Keep a change of clothes and some sneakers in your trunk in case you have to run from a burglar…or a bear.
