I didn’t know why it upset me so much when a lady put her red shoes in my face.


She took them off her feet and held them inches from my nose as she went into rapturous detail about how fabulous it was to walk around in heels completely emblazoned with tiny, sparkly, rhinestones.


Then it clicked home.


Dorothy, you have to be careful about what you think is super awesome, and consequently, how you represent.


Because, gurrrrl, you may just end up coming off looking cheap and ugly to other people.


Like those damn shoes.
