If high heels came with warning labels, they would read like one of those Saturday Night Live pharmaceutical commercial parodies with the endless list of potential side effects: plantar fasciitis, muscle spasms, ingrown toenails, nerve damage, bunions. Beauty is pain, or so they say. But this season—or this school year, as the case may be—things look to be different. Venus is in Virgo, Mercury in Libra, and fashion and comfort are for once in alignment. Enjoy
it while it lasts!
