Are high heels disrupting your brand?

Post from Social Media

Below will be a collection of posts that shaped the creation of this post and others like it to come. If you’re on social media and benefited, do click like on their image to show some love and support. At the end… a post or two from my images to round things off.

On Fire Fit

The first post is from the account… OnFireFit

Helping people get fit physically and spiritually is one of the things that makes her on fire. She’s got a YouTube channel as well as an Instagram.

A key point. Her message is not for everyone. Nor should a person’s message be for everyone. If you try to speak to everyone, you speak to no one. (A marketing expression). A universal message needs voices that can speak to individuals so they can come on board and benefit. It’s one thing to say “get fit”. It’s another to show people how they can tailor the message to their situations so that they do get fit.

I know. I really do. What I talk about here not everyone agrees with. I get that. … The thing is that we have to seek truth and grab onto hope. This world is full of contradictions and seems to have gone the way of believing that we all have our own individual truth. Yikes. No wonder we have such a mess on our hands! … Why do I post high heels and what does that have to do with anything? It has to do with my testimony. We each have one and we have to share it. … My testimony is that the love of God changes you. He changed me and I’m so much better for it. He’s still changing me. … I don’t believe that means we have to let go of who we are but it does mean that we are rooted in who He says we are: His beloved children. … So, yes, shoes might seem vain but they are all gifts of love from my husband and also part of who I am. … Truth be told 🙌🏼

Fashion Pastry

This woman loves to travel the world and take amazing photos of her journeys. Plus, she loves fashion… and pastries. A hard working woman who is not satisfied with the “settled life” she’s combining her interests well and creating an inspired life. Her tribe supports her and motivates her. People have grown and found their own voices from following her. I’ve been positively influenced by her authenticity and honesty. We need to have such positive people helping us along our journey.

Her spiritual growth is well documented on her blog. Fears and insecurities can be conquered. It is work. It requires faith. With enough tenacity and willingness to get up time and time again, one will eventually find their way. It’s the kind of work that you can’t do by yourself but you must do alone. (yeah.. We have to make the choice then get the right support… that is what the phrase means).

No longer afraid of the solitude that comes with raising my standards. Never beg for attention. Never overstay your welcome. Never settle. Never hold onto empty relationships. If you don’t like the menu, just leave the dayym restaurant. Honey, if it no longer sustains you, make you happy or grow, just let it go!🤷🏽‍♀️😁✌🏾 #mondaymotivation #inspireworkslay … … Je n’ai plus peur de la solitude que l’on ressent quand on met la barre haut. Ne cherche pas à plaire a tout prix. Ne reste pour si tu sens que tu n’es plus la bienvenue. Ne sois pas résigné. Ne t’accroche pas à des relations vides . Si tu n’aimes pas le menu, ben trouve un autre resto. Chéri(e), si ça ne te fait plus du bien, ne te rend plus heureux et ne te fais pas grandir, il faut lâcher pardôôn🤷🏽‍♀️😁✌🏾 … … … … … … … … … … 📍: London #londoneye #melanintravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #travelnoire #travel #blackgirlmagic #beautifulhotels #chanel #mytravelgram #beautifuldestinations #femmetravel #travelwoman #fashion #bgki #sidewalkerdaily #seemylondon #inspo #mytravelcrush #teekaytravels #blackgirlmagic #streetstyle #style

From Instagram

Every now and again, I’ll create an image that will inspire some words to flow. Part of the creative fun that I enjoy.

The transferable skill of composing a photo seems to apply to writing a story. Albeit different tools and tactics apply… but I digress. Enjoy below

A friendship has grown over the years with a lady I work with The introduction was made by a very observant coworker who suspected I appreciate a well heeled lady Turns out….I have no clue how the word got out. Instead ..I capitalized and became friends A wonderful side effect….I get to snap a pic or two a year. Of course…went the artsy route playing with features on the cellphone. This promoted a group of us to do some really creative shots…which will only remain between friends This brings a little side point. A few people asked about the pixelated last bunch of images. Apologies for that. The settings on an app I was using to restore abs recover a photoset was wrong….still looking for the originals to replace Thanks @razrx3 for asking

Continuing our little #photoinspiredwords with this @gianvitorossi heels of my coworker. Women love to express part of their fashion sense by the shoes they wear. I heard someone say that most people look at someone's shoes first to make part of their first impression Hence the expression….put your best foot forward….or at least that's one way to look at this. During a few chats with IG personalities like @onfirefit it was disheartening to hear how they're being told/advised by followers that they shouldn't show off their heels on IG. On grounds that it dilute their "spiritual" brand. (Deeply paraphrased) That is sad. In my opinion. As if…one can harm their positive messages by modeling good fashion Within a chat with @fashionpastry it has become increasingly more clear the need to build each other up within our respective tribes. Too many people taking jabs at others online (and in real life) instead of fostering meaningful relationships Many influential voices are calling for better relating skills between people. We are all humans running our races. If heels bring a smile to your face or brand….why not wear a great pair. The word #authenticity comes to mind Later this week…will drop a blog post expanding on this topic. Notification coming too. The operational word being #moderation In that post…I will humorously (hopefully) call these negative sayers "holy-police". This is NOT a paid post. There is NO connection between me and the brand. The views presented aren't affiliated with theirs. These heels are from my coworker (mentioned in my last post) (GDPR compliant?? Lol) I am the photographer using an older HTC phone in this instance Have a great rest of week

Happy Hump Day #blogpostalert "Are high heels disrupting your brand" is the title of the latest blog post. Link in bio Original title was "Too holy for heels?" …but thought better of it Topic came from a few discussions about the way people love shaming others So…a person can't wear a certain fashion veci of….fill in the blanks….. Really? Well. In the end, you still will end up doing what works best for you. Thanks to @onfirefit and @fashionpastry for their influence and letting me post one of their pix on the blog. Heels: @gianvitorossi that my coworker wears very proudly and agreed to let me photograph Fashion is a statement. An artistic expression if identity and strength. Let your style shine. Even if there is a spotlight on it…or none at all. You make your style bright This was the third in the series. Happy Wednesday
