The Repentant Testimony of a Manolo Convert: A fashion fairy tale that tells the truth about high heels

It’s Wednesday! That means today’s article is going to focus on the topic of our Book of the Month.

This month’s book is in honor of our “New Year, New You” promotion: 31 Days of Heels!

It’s funny, everyone uses that phrase “new year, new you”, but very few people can actually deliver on the promise of offering a person a solution that will actually produce a physiological effect in the way they are perceived by others.

That’s why we’ve chosen to focus on the high heel for this promotion, because it’s one of the quickest non-medical procedures that have been scientifically proven to be an empowerment tool for women.

It’s sounds incredible, but just quickly slipping on a pair of Jimmy Choo’s can not only increase a woman’s sex appeal, but also her power to influence. That is what evolutionary psychology researcher, Dr. Nicholas Gueguen found in his 2014 paper entitled: “High heels increase women’s attractiveness” which is summarized here.

That was also the backdrop of chapter three of “The Testimony of a Manolo Convert” entitled “The Jimmy Choo effect”. In the book we find out what happens when the protagonist, Rebecca Sharp, finds herself living out a real life version of Dr. Gueguen’s experiment.

Writing that chapter was fun for me, because I have a really scientific mind and I thought it would be fun to write an experiment so perfect that it had the fewest possible variables imaginable.

I’m really curious to know what other readers thought of that chapter. If you’re reading along share your thoughts below in the comments or email us at lilacblue[at]ladiesagain.com.

C’iao!
