Stuck in a Groove

At the Pentagon City station this a.m., I cringed as I saw a girl hurry past me, then teeter down the escalator in her stilettos to catch her train. At one point it appeared that one of her heels got stuck in the grooves but she somehow yanked it out –  and not very gracefully I might add.


Ok, I understand the 4-inch heels if you work in Manhattan. Those girls have suffering for fashion down to a science. Unfortunately that just doesn’t work for this Medestrian.

Is it really worth it to trip on the escalator or face-plant on the platform?  As someone who has done both, believe me when I say it ain’t pretty.

I’m merely suggesting you be fashionably responsible. Of course I still enjoy wearing heels, just not en route to the office. I’m not advocating wearing sneakers to work, either. A cute pair of Reva flats will do. Just wait until you get to the office to slip into those lofty Louboutins.

Clackers, beware.
