Work Those High Heels

Want a tip for your high heeled shoes?  Or maybe just shoes in general? Before my husband and I started dating, I was not a shoe person.  Shoes served a function for me and that was it.  Besides, my pants were normally sized to be a little longer than my ankle so my shoes were…
