The world is full of great three- and four-star spas and resorts that the general public can take advantage of. However, there are a small number of exclusive spas that are so posh, luxurious and expensive that they only attract the wealthy and the famous. One of the most posh spas in the world is Spa V found inside South Beach’s signature Hotel Victor.

I Never Thought This Would Happen to Me!

There are lots of rumors flying around about the recent photos taken of me wearing thigh high boots . So I just want to post my version of what really happened. Now that the photo shoot is over, I’m trying to think back on how I was conned by the photographer into posing in them.

The photo shoot started out innocently enough. The photographer chose one of the conference rooms at Zappos headquarters and told me to just relax and be comfortable, and he took normal shots of myself and Brent sitting or standing casually in our normal clothes and shoes. We did various shots in the conference room for about half an hour, and a couple of them were pretty fun poses. There were a few shots of Brent wearing a Viking hat and me wearing a Burger King-like crown.

When it looked like the whole photo shoot was over, the photographer said “Oh, and just one more thing… I want to do a quick shot outside if you don’t mind.” Sounded innocent enough, so I agreed.

And then he said, “But outside, I’d like you to wear different shoes, do you mind wearing something more colorful or bright?”

And I said, “I don’t think I have colorful or bright shoes that fit me here at the office.”

And then he said, “That’s okay, anything is fine… you could just have something like these high heels near you.”

I’m not quite sure what happened after that. I think I blacked out. There’s a 15-minute period of my life that just disappeared. The next thing I knew, I was sitting on a bench with Brent gingerly removing the thigh high boots off of my legs and the photographer telling me that those were great shots and I looked really good.

And next thing I know, my photo was uploaded by a passing employee on our company blog.

So that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
