It's called "The Fall of Shame." And if you don't know what it means, consider yourself lucky.
Have you ever fallen in public? If you answered that question affirmatively, welcome to the club. This isn't exactly the type of recognition you're clamoring for, especially if you're not exactly overwhelmed with joy when you fall in front of a crowd of people.
Plenty of high profile, successful women have wiped out in public, mostly because they're constantly at odds with their high heeled shoes and simply can't win the balancing act between wearing the footwear they enjoy and wishing or hoping they don't tip over as a result.
The thought of wearing a pair of sneakers in place of stilettos with that beautiful black dress for an evening out pretty much kills any idea of employing a stunning ensemble. While you're at it, why not just throw on some sweat pants and call it a night.
Now, the "Fall of Shame" isn't meant to make women feel bad, but anyone who has ever taken an ill advised tumble in high heels knows just how low that makes you feel. This is especially true if your fall occurs during an event that doesn't come with a do over, such as a wedding, prom or even other grandiose get together.
