As a saleswoman in the 2009 movie Bride Wars said, you don’t alter a Vera Wang dress – you alter yourself to fit into a Vera.
The New York Times reported the latest act of insanity of fashion victims, who aren’t altering themselves for Vera Wang, but for a number of designer shoes. The women are opting for surgery and beautifying procedures just so they can fit better into their high heels. For example, some of them prefer to get their toes shortened, while others opt for toe lengthening or fat pads. It might sound crazy, but that’s far from the end. Experts in New York and Los Angeles are performing a variety of procedures, including Botox injections in the calves, injectable fillers, bunion removals and other painful procedures. One patient even asked an expert to amputate her pinkie toe!
Would you ever go to similar lengths in order to fit better into your pricey, but gorgeous high heels?
