CAUTION Heeling While Pregnant
In the near future designers may need to include a disclaimer for their heels and platforms for pregnant women. I can picture it similar to ”CAUTION DO NOT operate these heels while pregnant” on a huge yellow tag. This tag may also have a slight disclaimer that states due to the unbalance of your load it may not be wise to wear stilettos or platforms.
Vanessa Minnillo, the wife of Nick Lachey, was spotted in LA yesterday (6/25) meeting a friend for lunch with a huge baby load. Although, Vanessa scores major points in my book for rocking one of my favorite Gucci shoes, she is quickly minus points for wearing them while pregnant. As a mother I know how being pregnant can deflate and crush a pregnant women’s internal sexiness. So I understand the reason for sticking with the heels. If it were me in that situation, I would reverse that feeling and shove my swollen feet faster than you could blink an eye into the hottest flat sandal. It’s the one time in a women’s life when her feet and focus can be in the comfortable mode and no one questions her fashion integrity.
As graceful as Vanessa was in her heels Nicole “Snooli” Pollizi was tumbling out of hers.
The Huffington Post quoted Snook’s interview with Good Morning America. Snooki said “I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them….I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.”
As you can see Snooki has made no qualms about her determination to continue to rock her heels while pregnant but her recent fall while filming the “Jersey Shore” may have her rethinking her position. The words “Snooki and falling on Jersey shore” doesn’t immediately send up caution flags but by adding the pregnant factor changes the equation.
