How To Walk in High Heels (Poll Contest)



It’s the price you pay for looking hot. Here’s how to put your sexiest foot forward—without toppling over.

You Will Need
High-heeled shoes
A little practice
Ibuprofen

Step 1: Pick the right shoe
Pick the right shoe. Need to walk on grass? Stilettos will sink, but a wedge heel will keep you steady. If you’re planning to dance, choose something with a strap. If you’re stepping out in mile-high stilettos, take ibuprofen first; the anti-inflammatory ingredients will help keep your feet from swelling.

Step 2: Practice
Practice walking at home in a fluid heel-ball-toe step. The earlier you start, the more likely your success: the day before an event is good, but playing childhood dress-up is even better. Stand up straight! Standard stomach in, chest out posture helps you maintain your balance

Step 3: Tread carefully
Tread carefully on high heel landmines like cobblestones, potholes, street grates, boardwalks, and staircases—especially those without banisters.

Step 4: Watch those stairs
Walk up stairs on the balls of your feet. When coming down, sidestep slowly.

Step 5: Keep flats on hand
Know when to say when. Keep ballet flats or sneakers handy for when your feet are begging for mercy.

Did You Know?
Despite their name, “kitten” heels can be vicious—they’re more likely to cause lower back pain than a standard pair of heels!



Hopefully after watching this video you'll avoid the ankle sprains and pavement plashes sometimes associated with walking in high heels. But tell us have you ever had a high heel mishaps? If so, what was it? Was it an ankle sprain? Face First Splash Down? Broken Heel?...Etc... Fashionwithfifi.com wants to know.



One winner will be selected at random and will recieve a $75 Gift Certificate towards any purchase at Heels.com.

How To Dress a Baby



Dressing a baby is a piece of cake—that is, after you’ve mastered a few tricks for maneuvering her head and limbs through those tiny neck and arm and leg holes.


Step 1: Choose clothes
Decide what the baby should wear based on the same factors you use to decide for yourself—the temperature, the time of day, and the activities you have planned. In general, babies should wear one more layer than you do. For comfort’s sake, choose soft cotton clothes and avoid anything with buttons or appliqués that could come loose, ribbons or strings that could wrap around limbs or necks, and rough inside seams that could scratch baby’s skin.

Step 2: Lie baby down
Lie the baby down on a safe surface, such as the bed or a blanket on the floor. Changing tables generally aren’t roomy enough to dress a baby safely and easily.

Step 3: Change diaper
Change your baby’s diaper first, if need be. Talk, sing, and play with the baby as you dress her to make it fun for both of you. And don’t forget to give her a big raspberry on the belly at every opportunity.

Step 4: One-piece outfit
If you’ll be out and about, choose a one-piece outfit that snaps or zips up the front from ankle to neck—they’re easiest to put on and take off for diaper changes. Lay the outfit out and place your baby on top of it. Slip her feet through the leg holes or into the feet, pull her arms gently through the sleeves, and snap or zipper her in.

Step 5: Two-piece outfit
If you’re opting for a two-piece outfit, put on the top first. Choose tops that will go easily over your baby’s head. A stretchy neck or snaps or buttons on the shoulders work well. If it’s a snap-top, simply lay the shirt open on the surface and lay the baby face up on top of it. Slip one arm into a sleeve at a time and snap the shirt closed. A kimono-style t-shirt with snaps on the side is best for infants, especially if their belly button hasn’t yet healed. A tee that snaps at the crotch, like a onesie, is best for older, more active babies—it’ll stay tucked in.

Step 6: Slip on shirt
If the top is not a snap-on, use both hands to stretch the neck of the t-shirt as wide as possible, then slip it over her head. To get her arms through the sleeves, reach into the sleeves, grab her hand, and pull it through. Lift her body slightly with one hand to pull the body of the shirt down so that you can snap it.

Step 7: Put on bottoms
Now put on the bottoms. Avoid bottoms that have to be zippered or buttoned; elastic-waist pants are ideal. Bunch up one leg at a time, reach in, and pull your baby’s foot through. Then lift her hips slightly with one hand while you tug the pants up and over her diaper.

Step 8: Slip on socks
If her feet are bare, slip on socks. Choose stretchy ones with a roll-down cuff; they’ll stay on better. Booties with elasticized ankles are also more likely stay on. Avoid patterned socks with loose strings inside—these could get tangled around those tiny toes.

Step 9: Put on hat & layer
Now pop a hat on her head, and any other extra layers she may need, and let her know what a fashionable little baby she is.

Did You Know?
During the 1600s, American babies were generally dressed in so much clothing wrapped so tightly that they were usually immobilized from head to toe.

Look Book: CR- Fall Into Winter


The Thanks Giving Holiday marks a lot of important annual milestones. It's the official start of the holiday season, Black Friday kicks off a shopping season that last through Christmas, and if you live here in NYC it's the unofficial start of winter. It seems that every year the weekend after thanksgiving brings extra blustery winds and a precipitous drop in temperature. Although we're still technically a month away from the official start of winter you wouldn't know it today. But that doesn't mean you have to lose your sense of style. Enter this look from Charlotte Russe that I'm calling "Fall Into Winter!"



The centerpiece of any good fall look is the coat or jacket. Layer up under this lightweight Double Breasted Wool Jacket featuring a wool twill fabric, fold over collar, double breasted buttons, two front pockets, buttoned long sleeve cuffs, and an interior lining for extra warmth. The color pictured is called Chocolate, but this jacket also comes in Ivory White and Wine Red. Sizes range from Small to Large. For some perspective on fit, note that size medium has a shoulder-to-bottom hem length of 24". Keeping with Charlotte Russe's consumer friendly pricing, this jacket sells for only $28.99 and does qualify for the Black Friday BOGO Sale.





Next you'll need something chic underneath the jacket. Adorable with skinny jeans or leggings, this Tie Knit Tunic features a cable knit fabric, hood with pom pom drawstring tie, and a waist tie. This Tunic is sleeveless so I recommend wearing a turtleneck or sweater underneath. Charlotterusse.com sells this Tunic for $24.99 in sizes ranging from S to L. Size medium has a shoulder-to-bottom hem length of 33".



Leggings are all the rage right now, and I love them with this look. Layer or wear on its own, these 21" Seamless Leggings feature a stretchy knit fabric, seamless construction, and a ribbed waistband. The Inseam is 21" with a Rise of 7". They sell for $7.99 at Charlotterusse.com. Machine washable.







Tuck your leggings or bottoms into these Buckled Cowboy Boots featuring a distressed faux leather, buckled straps, round toe, stitching details, 2 1/2" faux wood chunky heel, and a lightly padded insole. 13" shaft height. Faux leather upper and rubber sole. Charlotterusse.com offers these boots in Black and Brown for $42.99.





You can top off the look with an earmuff hat or a cabbie hat. Gloves and scarves are optional depending on the temperature. All of the items above qualify for the Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off sale currently going on at Charlotterusse.com.
