I have about 20 pairs of heels that have never been worn due to the fact the hub always says when I do wear them and walk my knees look like there giving out. I'm not the most graceful woman but I really want to bring the ''sexiness'' to my outfits considering I am 21. Help!! Tips on how to walk and be confident in heels!

How I learned to walk in heels was to bring them with me to the grocery store. Grab a cart and walk around in the while you hold on to the cart. This will help you get used to them. And also, when you stand, bend your knees slightly, have really good posture, keep your head up and shoulders back.

Here's a great you tube video on walking in heels:

I actually had a drag queen teach me and according to him, you gotta walk with attitude. Ok, he actually called it "Perfecting Your B.itch Walk", because you cannot wear a sexy pair of heels with no attitude. I had to wear them around forever and pratice my attitude strut. And increse in height slowly. You just can't start out at 4", start with a kitten heel and work from there.

Defy.gravity (love Wicked!) has a good point... start off with some easier shoes. If you're not comfortable with a full heel yet, you could try walking around wedges, it gets your leg/ankles used to walking around at those different heights/angles but you don't feel like you're going to just topple over the way you can with heels.

OH.MY.GOD. I just can't put into words how I strongly relate to this thread! D: People around me aren't really comfortable with the thought of me wearing heels as I was already towering over them. And I'm no woman when I'm wearing heels! *creys*
