If the Shoe Doesn't Fit, Don't Wear It

Poor Cinderella. Her whole future depended on the fit of a shoe.

But in the Grimm Brothers' version, the step-sisters suffer even worse. They try to fit into a too-small slipper by cutting off parts of their feet.

What a price to pay for "success"!

It reminds me of the repeated line of Billy Crystal as "Fernando" on Saturday Night Live: "It's better to look good than to feel good."

WRONG.

Ill-fitting clothes, shoes included, are a ridiculous mistake. Girls in too-tight jeans, men whose t-shirts stretch across their chests--these are not fashion statements, they're cries for help.

When you take off your shoes, are your feet marked up from them? Are you really willing to pay that price for "style"?

No, no, no.

Wear clothes and shoes that fit. If they don't fit, don't wear them. Don't be a slave to fashion.

You'll be happier.
