She will die for her Louboutin shoes but will also die for the closest free seat in the club, arguing that the slick red soles are an investment. She is a slave to fashion. Often it seems that fashion comes with the price of pain. You cringe for the gentleman in Skinny jeans, imagining his tight squeezed day ahead - and admire the girl in Vans, who could run the marathon if she wished. Can the most fashionable of fashionista’s be comfortable?
Celebs are a key example, flamboyancy and killer heels will see you through it seems, ask Gaga. Her famous meat dress was far from comfortable though, it was a fashion statement nonetheless. Such statements can bring backache and blisters yet bring joy to its observers. “She looks hot.”, “His kicks are nice” and, “Where did she get that dress?” – the list goes on.

Feeling comfortable in the way you present yourself is all that matters. Fashion is pain only if you make it.
