Nude Heels…the best lesson my mother ever taught me

The best lesson my mother ever taught me was one that I have followed since the first day it was spoken: wear flesh coloured heels to make your legs look miles long.  It’s as true today as it was in the 1970s when she used to wear her towering platforms and little mini dresses. Her sisters tell me stories of how the boys used to drool as they watched her sitting on the bus painting daisies on her never-ending legs.  You see, my mom had the legs every woman envied but even she used tricks to emphasis her assets and this was one that was closest to her heart. I may not have inherited her flawless limbs but I was lucky enough to have her little tips to help out…
