If your resolutions tend to look much the same from one year to another and you are suffering from the suspicion that someone, somewhere is having more fun that you, then you need something to revitalise your lust for life. A YEAR IN HIGH HEELS is here to help.
This book will guide you through the months with a perfectly co-ordinated combination of culture and challenges. With a monthly muse to inspire, and a suggested title for that soon-to-be-formed book club, dumbing down is so last season.
Erin O'Connor, Diane von Furstenberg, Matthew Williamson and others share their secrets about their favourite places - so the next time you check in you'll know what to check out - while Dita von Teese, Anya Hindmarch and Christian Lacroix show you how to undress, how to go green and how to appreciate opera.
Eclectic, practical and fantastical, A YEAR IN HIGH HEELS is crammed with fascinating stories, inspiring ideas and surprisingly sensible advice.
Forget who, when, why and what to wear. Get ready to wow!
Despite a little help from friends in high fashion places, including a foreword written by Manolo Blahnik, Morton's follow-up to her debut book How to Walk in High Heels is an unsuccessful pastiche of historical facts, shoe styles, recipes and juxtaposing tips like How to be A-list and How to say something meaningful. The book is arranged in calendar form, with each month including cultural tips and information and a Muse of the Month profile of famous women like Jane Austen and Cleopatra. While trying to appeal to both sides of the Atlantic, the London writer misses the mark by trying too hard to be all-inclusive, especially where holidays are concerned. The sheer volume of historical facts including when Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross, when Disneyland opened in America and when Mata Hari was born seem like they were compiled purely to fill in the bits between international dispatches from famous fashionistas like Giorgio Armani and Diane von Furstenberg and are out of place next to a section titled How to moonwalk the Michael Jackson way.
